in Blood

Seeing blood in your dog's urine can be very alarming. It is not normal for dogs to have blood in their urine. Therefore, when your dog starts peeing blood there must be something really wrong with him.

Blood in dog urine can be caused by a number of reasons. These causes include bladder infection, urinary tract infection, prostate gland infection, tick infestation, poisoning or chemical intoxication, kidney or bladder stones, prostate gland infection, internal injuries, and cancer. As you can see, the causes of dog urinating blood are medical conditions which require immediate attention. Therefore, when you notice blood in your dog's urine, the best thing to do is to take it to the veterinarian.

Typically, blood in dog's urine come with other symptoms such as straining to urinate, constant howling while urinating, constant licking of the genital area, producing only small amount of urine or no urine at all. The dog's constant howling especially when urinating and its constant licking of its genital area signals the presence of pain. When the dog starts to urinate with blood in it, it may be a sign that whatever is causing it has gone to its advanced stage. This can be alarming because this can mean that your dog is in great danger.

When you take the dog to the vet, the vet may perform a series of physical and laboratory tests to determine the cause of the problem. Once the vet has made a proper diagnosis, he can then perform the exact treatment to the dog. Depending on the cause of the presence of blood, the vet may prescribe medicines to stop the symptoms or he may perform surgery and other medical procedures. He may also advice a change in the dog's diet.

It is important that you follow the instructions and advice given by the veterinarian. His words may mean life and death for your dog. Once your dog is ready to go back home and recuperate, you can then give him other forms of treatment which may help in the faster healing of his condition and in preventing a recurrence of the disease. But again, it is important that you consult the vet first.

A great way to help treat bloody urine in dogs and fighting against recurrences of the disease is to give your dog homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic remedies can be administered at home. According to statistics, homeopathic remedies have proven their worth in treating urinary diseases in dogs including blood in urine. Most dog owners have used homeopathic remedies in their pets. Not all homeopathic remedies, though, may show improvements in dogs. That is why you need to carefully choose the right homeopathic remedies for your dog. It is recommended that you buy homeopathic remedies which contain uva ursi, berberis vulgaris, staphysagris, and cantharis. These ingredients have properties which can help strengthen your dog's immune system and boost your dog's overall and general health.

A dog is like a baby. It needs our proper care. We wouldn't want our dog to suffer from any diseases. When you see blood in your dog's urine, it is important that you take proper actions on it.
