Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet with 10 years of clinical experience working out of West London. It will be my pleasure to help you today.

I'm sorry to hear to this and understand your concern for Rio.

Can he pass full streams of urine?

Are his gums pink and wet?

Hi there, could you see my reply?

It looks like you may be offline. Without further information it is difficult for me to provide the best advice but I will certainly try. Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.

I'm sorry Rio has been having this issue and know you will be very concerned for him.

It may be that the bleeding is related to the recent prolapse and surgery but we'd also consider:

  • A urinary tract infection
  • A cut or inflammation from licking
  • Urinary crystals 
  • Etc.

Ideally we'd examine him and analyse his urine.

He may well need some antibiotics as well as anti inflammatories.

At home, ensure he can pass urine.

Offer plenty of water and wet food to help flush him through.

If licking, he must wear a buster collar to protect his penis.

Hopefully he is feeling better very soon.
