Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Is she straining to urinate at all? Any loss of appetite

Sadie can not hold her pee, when she pees it is a little at a time like she is trying to show me that something is wrong
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Okay thanks for the additional information. Is there a large amount of blood? I would be concerned that she either has a serious urinary tract infection or she has possibly stones in her bladder. If that is the case there is a possibility that she could be partially blocked. If your veterinarian is not open early in the morning or she is continuing to have a large amount of blood then I would recommend taking her to an emergency veterinarian

She just seems to have no control and can't hold it. she is drinking and eating hungry all the time. but keeps dripping brownish drops of urine
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
we have an appointment Monday morning at 8:30 should we take her sooner?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

I would be concerned that if she keeps drippng the brownish drops of urine then she could be bleeding inside of the bladder. I wouldn't wait until Monday. I would either see if you can get her in on a Saturday morning or take her to an emergency vet if possible.

The vet is not open on Saturday just the emergency vet is open at night and weekends
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Okay based on what you are describing that is going on with Sadie I can imagine she is likely very uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend waiting until Monday to see a veterinarian. I would see if there is any other veterinarians in your area that happens to be open on a Saturday or recommend taking her to an emergency veterinarian just to be safe. They may want to take x-rays to rule out stones and probably place her on antibiotics as well.
