Hi this is Dr. Jen :-) I am sorry to hear that Duffy is having issues. Is blood coming out in the urine or dripping from his penis?
Is he still urinating and eating normally? Is he neutered?
How long has the bleeding been going on for?
And has it stopped at all, or has it been constant bleeding since last night? Is he straining to urinate at all?
OK. Well it is not ideal to wait until tomorrow, but I think it is OK. He is most likely suffering from either a urinary tract infection or bladder stones. Bladder tumors do occur, but are much less likely. As long as he is not straining to urinate (trying to pee with nothing coming out) it is not an emergency.
Do you have a vet urgent care or Er near you? That would be your other option to try and get him seen today.
From what you have told me honestly I do not think it will be harmful to wait until tomorrow.
They are most likely going to want to do some x-rays and look at a urine sample under the microscope to figure out what truly is going on.
I honestly would not with him bleeding. Aspirin is typically is the only thing over the counter that we can give two dogs but with him bleeding it would not be wise as it does increase the tendency to bleed.
You’re welcome :-)
How is Duffy doing? What did your vet end up finding?
It does not cost anything to answer my request for an update ;-) I am glad he is under treatment.
