Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
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 Ada.
Do you have a photo of her urine?
Is she lethargic, drinking more, off her food or straining to pee?
Sure thing, ok.
Please bear with me as I type my advice.
I'm sorry Ada has been passing this red urine and know you will be concerned.
With signs like this, at her age, the top considerations would include:
While red urine can be diet related, this does not sound to be the case here.
I'd advise a vet check so we can examine Ada and feel her bladder. Ideally, we'd also analyse her urine, checking for any bacteria or crystals. If there is a concern, the vet may scan her bladder, uterus and kidneys.
Ada's treatment will depend on what is going on and may include anti inflammatories and antibiotics.
In the meantime, ensure she is no stressed or overheating. Monitor her appetite and thirst levels, and ensure she continue to be able to pass urine like normal.
Is this all ok?
