Symptoms of urinary obstruction – this is an emergency situation and should you feel that your dog is experiencing any/some of the following symptoms, please do not hesitate to ring your emergency vet and tell him you are on your way. The symptoms we would associate with POSSIBLE urinary obstruction are:-
* Abdominal pain, agitation
* Disorientation and collapse
* Frequent straining to pass urine but only a few drops produced.
* Urine usually containing blood
This condition is most often seen in male dogs when a small urinary stone obstructs the urethra (the narrow tube which carries urine from the bladder to the outside).
