Hi Folks, Haka, whose 13th birthday was a month ago yesterday, was peeing blood today. He'd been peeing in the house, BUT, his sister pees in the house and we thought this was him thinking "this is ok"... Anyway, DH noticed the blood on the morning walk and we went in to the vet at 10am. He peed 2 more times in the house before we got there, which is definitely unusual. She probed his prostate (which he LOVED, not ) and there's no raise in temperature. He wasn't happy with probing his penis either, so we assume there is some irritation. He did pee "on demand" when I took him for a quick walk, so we got a sample and they spun it down to test on the spot. PH is ok, no crystals... she said it was a bit "dilute" which could point to some issues, and there was a bit of bacteria, but not sure if that was the collection vessel or him. So-- sending the urine out for culture. They drew blood, will test that too. She doesn't think it's an infection in the kidneys (no temperature), and she doesn't think it's prostate, since it didn't feel enlarged to her. We should hear more tomorrow. Please have good thoughts for my monkey boy. Soren
