How do you prevent your dog from peeing blood?

By Dr. Sarah Myers, DVM.  Reviewed by Dr. Elizabeth Davis, MVB

Give your dog regular baths and keep their hind end clean to lower the chance of bacterial infection, including any urinary tract infections (UTIs). Conformation can play a role in which dogs develop infections and which don’t, so if your dog has many skin folds around her vulva, or a very short distance between vulva and rectum, you may need to put a bit more effort into keeping them clean. 

Feed a high quality dog food which will not predispose your dog to having an abnormal urinary pH to lower the chance of developing bladder stones. Your veterinary team can provide guidance on what would work best for your dog’s age, breed and lifestyle.
