Her urine looks weird...

Her urine looks weird, she is lethargic, has diarrhea, is throwing up and not really eating. She seems like a completely different dog than just 4 days ago.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

She has heartworms and is supposed to start treatment tomorrow morning

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

In what way does her urine look weird?

Hi,
It looks sort of crystallized, but there is no texture. On her puppy pad one pool looks to have a green tint while the other has a reddish tint. When I look closely it appears to just be liquid, but it looks wrong.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Her heart rate and breath are both elevated as well.

Okay this could be crystals and/or inflammation/infection in the urine

They should check that tomorrow and culture the urine at same time

The lethargy could be from the heartworms

The V/D not so much so

The elevated heart rate and breathing are concerning

She has enough symptoms now that I have to recommend you take her to be examined

We must err on the side of caution especially with the heartworm issue

Can you take her in?

Oh, there I also just found rat urine and droppings in her food

Wow that is abnormal

The rat urine and droppings might explain the V/D
