NeylasMom Posted August 31, 2013 Share Posted August 31, 2013 (edited) On our hike, Violet started peeing blood, about a mile or a little more in. It was hotter than I would have liked so I was giving water frequently and when I saw the blood I made sure she was totally wet down as best I could and turned around. We stopped repeatedly for water and each time she would drink a lot then pee a relatively small amt of red blood.We git back, I hosed her down with ice cold water, and got her in car with AC. In car she drank coconut water. Through this all she was walking, alert and responsive although on hike itself panting and slower than normal.Went to closest vet we could find, they've given her subq fluids, 500 ml (theyre closing, no time for IV) and we're waiting for a basic blood chem. they can't do UA in house so are spinning it down to see if its all fresh blood that separates out to try to rule out heat issue. They're also doing something to look at hematocrit and blood and bloody urine will get sent out for full CBC and UA......Heat not ruled out but they seem less inclined to think its that. Both the new rather clueless vet and the amazing vet tech of 30 years think its most likely a stone, but UTI isn't completely off table (they think its too much blood for that) and bladder cancer or a benign tumor rupturing have also been brought up.Thoughts? Depending on blood, we will prob do X-rays to look for stones. Anything else? I can get am ultrasound but we will have to go to the emergency clinic closer to my house. Same if i wamt to do IV fluids or she needs a blood transfusion because they close at 3.She is acting completely normal btw. Resting comfortably, eyes and gums look good, no bruising.
