3164. 10-year-old male not neutered dog passes blood in the urine for past 6 days
No urinary stones from X-ray. However, some stones are not radio-dense.
I palpated a swollen bladder the size of the golf ball but no pain
I did not palpate a swollen prostate which could also cause blood in the urine.
"Any humping on pillows or gripping people's legs?" I asked reference to the dog's behaviour at home since he was not neutered.
"No," the concerned lady replied.
"Does he lick his private parts?"
This could cause injury to the penile area. Inflammation and blood showed in the urine.
