Urinary Obstruction

 

Urinary obstruction is an emergency situation requiring prompt veterinary care so it is important to ensure that you are able to spot the signs.  It is seen most often in male dogs, when a small, urinary stone has become lodged in the urethra.

The signs to look out for are:-

* Agitation
* Abdominal pain
* Frequent straining to pass urine
* Often only a few drops of urine are passed (usually containing blood)
* Vomiting
* Collapse
* Disorientation
