Hi, I can help you with your question today.
The blood can be an indication of infection or additional stones. We need to have his urine tested for infection, and it would be best to have another x-ray taken to look for additional stones.
I recommend having him seen by your local vet as soon as possible. This isn't as serious an emergency as when he was obstructed, but he is probably quite uncomfortable. It would be nice to have him seen today, if not he should be OK until Monday. If you do note that he may be blocked again, that would warrant an emergency visit.
In the meantime, encourage him to drink as much as possible using dilute chicken broth or dilute water from a tuna can.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.

Expert:  Dr. Susan replied 2 years ago.
Yes, as long as we do not see any indication of obstruction. Watch him when he attempts to urinate. If the stream is weak or broken, he should be seen at the ER.
