Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.Blood in a pet's urine indicates that they have a urinary tract infection. It could be just bacteria, could include crystals or could be as bad as large urinary stones that require surgical removal. Males are especially prone to major problems with UTI's with stones because they can block the urethra, keeping the pet from being able to urinate. For this reason, it's very important to have an examination and a urinalysis performed. Most of the time the UTI is bacterial and antibiotics clear the symptoms within a few days. If you have future problems with UTI's and crystals in the urine, your vet may talk to you about switching diets to prevent stone formation.
