yes he keeps wanting to eat grass

Lindy, in male dogs common disorders causing bloody urine are: urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), bladder stones, prostate or kidney disease, etc. Any of the above mentioned diseases could cause vomiting. Or, he could have a completely different problem affecting the gastrointestinal tract like an infection, ingestion of a foreign body, parasites, etc. to name a few causes.
I realize how difficult it must be taking him to the vet. But, in this case Bruno is going to need to have some testing (xrays, urinlaysis and blood) to determine the exact underlying cause. In the meantime for the vomiting this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or imodium. Start him on Zantac (ranitidine) 75mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for the next 3 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.
2- No food or water for 6-8 hours. Need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest.
3- After 6-8 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.
4- Follow up with family veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
