Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share pictures of what you're seeing?Any obvious blood in the urine?Any intact females around him of which you're aware?Any potential to breed?
I'm sorry, I am not able to offer a call at this time. I'll be happy to help you online, though. Can you answer the questions above?
Thank you for the additional info. The best approach is going to be an examination by a veterinarian. They will likely want to run a urinalysis for good measure to rule out a urinary tract infection and may also recommend bloodwork, x-rays and potentially an ultrasound based on what they find. Intact male dogs are prone to prostatic issues, as well, which may involve difficulty or pain urinating or defecating in the near future, if this might be what is wrong. The treatment will depend on what is diagnosed during the examination but may range from a course of antibiotics to neutering to referral to a specialist.
