2909. A 10-year-old male not neutered Shih Tzu passes dark red urine on Aug 9, 2016

Aug 12, 2016

3 days ago, went to Vet 1 for emergency blood in the urine treatment. Seldom has this problem for past months.

Abdominal palpation - the dog arches his back when the bladder area is palpated. No obvious signs of pain. X-rays show no bladder stones but an enlarged prostate.

Likely a benign prostate hyperplasia with infection --- blood in the urine. Urine test showed blood.
A change to a Prescription C/D diet. Neuter is advised.
