It can be quite troubling to discover blood in your dog’s urine, but most cases are treatable. Paying attention to the color (ranging from light pink to bright red), duration and situations when this occurs all help your vet arrive at a diagnosis.
Keep up with regular exams and recommended labwork for your dog. Like most things, prevention is preferable to treatment. Identifying any risk factors early will be helpful in the long term.
If you do notice blood in your dog’s urine, don’t panic. Your veterinary team is available to help and everybody has the same goal – for your dog to feel better and return to their happy, playful self.
