Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Hopefully this is something minor such as a urinary tract infection, while uncommon in male dogs these do occur now and again for various reasons, but if this is the diagnosis then a course of antibiotics from your vet will soon put things to right. Of course other diagnosis are also possible such as stones or crystals in the bladder and more rarely more serious urinary tract diseases are possible.

2. As antibiotics are prescription drugs then having him checked over by your vet at the next opportunity is your best way forward, and also a thorough examination would be desirable to confirm the diagnosis, if possible take a fresh urine sample with you in a clean glass container.

3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
