Hi I think my dog has a urine infection . This afternoon she started to want to pee more often and now nothing comes out but I did see a few drops of blood. My vet can’t see her till tomorrow at 8.00. She is a Labrador age 14.
JA: Hi there. I'll do all I can to help. Have you also noticed an unusual smell in the dog's urine?
Customer: i
JA: Does she seem more tired than usual?
Customer: no smell, quite active. Still wants food! She does pant a lot but has always done this as she’s got older. Really want to know if I need to get an emergency appointment somewhere? Or will she be ok till tomorrow.
JA: What's the dog's name and age?
Customer: Lola. Age 14
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know about Lola?
Customer: She has a limp but can’t take anti inflammatory medication. So only on cod liver oil. She does get very out of breath and we know it’s probably heart problem due to her age.
