Poor Chiefy has had a rough 2 days. Yesterday he got neutered, and because he was cyrtorchid, he had a second incision. We picked him up around 4. Soon after we brought him to the office, he threw up. So i gave him a little bit of water and a few pieces of dog food. When 6pm came around, i gave him a smaller sized dinner and let him out. And i saw blood on his legs and some in his crate.
So the red flags went up immediately! I called the vet where his surgery was done, and they were closed
So i called up an emergency clinic, told them what was going on,and brought him there. The vet and vet techs looked at him and couldn't find a thing wrong with him. No blood. So we thought that he was bleeding a little bit and it stopped.
This morning, he peed in his crate
And he's never done that before, so i knew something was amiss. I brought him outside and he went into his pee stance, and nothing came out. He tried to poop, and only pooped very little. So i thought that it was still some left over anethesia from the surgery. I brought him in, gave him food and water and then like 5 min. later, he peed in the house twice! But there was some blood at the beginning of his pee and at the end. We called the vet office, was told we'd hear back from the vet soon. 2 hours went by and we haven't heard anything. So we called again and was told the vet was going to give us a call back shortly. Like 45 min. later they called and Tom told them what was going on and he said he could have a Urinary Track Infection and that they'd have antibiotics for him ready at the office. There was NO testing done (which if you were to read on line, it says that testing has to be done to determine if it is a UTI.
So now he has to pee like every hour, and when he goes into his pee stance, he'll have blood and urine mixed together. He'll finish up and then go into the pee stance again and quite a few drops of blood will drip from his pee pee.
I feel so bad for him. The dr said if there is no improvement by Monday to give him a call because it could be something serious. I honestly think the dr should have looked at him today so we (and they) know exactly what's going on.
Sorry for the long post, but that's whats going on with Chief :(
