This morning I woke up to a bad scare...Baby had pee'd in the kitchen BABY NEVER HAS DONE THIS and there was ALOT of blood in her pee.I took her to the vet ASAP and she has a bladder infection. It scared me to death I took off school today and tomorrow to stay at home with her she is feeling bad... and I think mommy needs to do some babying...
you'd be surprised how many dogs would come into boarding and i'd see blood in the urine out in the runs where they would do their business. the runs wree concrete and off white color so that is how we could see it. most of the time owners ahve no way of knowing if the dog has a uti or even crystals or stones unless the know the other signs to look for besides blood in the urine.
the signs that i look for:
not all the time but sometimes there's fever and lethargy
licking the genitals
strong heavy odor in the urine
frequent urge to urinate and little to nothing comes out
Oh, no! Friday does all of those things! There is no blood, but yesterday, when I walked into the apartment, the whole place smelled like urine and I couldn't understand why (it's a small apartment). I looked around to see if she pottied on the carpet or in the hallway, but she hadn't. And maybe when I thought she was "faking" potty-ing, she was really just feeling like she needed to go and very little came out!!!!!!! And I didn't notice excessive licking, but what do I know????
