    Default Mojo's man bit issues.

    It all started with a innocent vet visit to weigh in and pick up worm tablets. I noticed a few drops of redish urine on the floor and a simple visit turned into a big thing. This was a week ago now. The first thought was some sort of urinary infection but a week of antibiotics hasnt totally cleared it.
    So today the poor bugger got a finger in the bum and a his urine tested.

    He's booked in for a Ultra sound, xrays, blood tests, catheter , prostate massage...etc etc on Thursday so he wont have any drugs in his system by that stage.

    Could be a number of things at this stage...infection is the most likely but it could be bladder stones aswell. The other possibilities i dont even want to think about right now.

    He's young so fingers crossed its just a infection but they want to check everything while he's under.

    Thing is he's totaly fine and hasnt shown any symptoms...it was just lucky i noticed the tiny drops of reddish urine on the floor.

    Poor boy lost his dignity today with his bits and pieces proded and handled.... i promised him i wouldnt breath a word to Bronx as he was a bit embarrsed. Lucky the girls there love him to bits and they where all hands on deck working on him to keep him calm and happy.

    When we arrived there this morning the first thing he did was jump up and put his paws on the front desk and just stood there for five minutes while they all patted and oogled over the cheeky sod. He was standing there eye to eye with some of them like he was chatting them up at a bar. He wasnt such a happy pooch when we left

    My poor boys in the wars.

    Sorry to hear Mojo's dignity has been so rudely assaulted.
    Your tale reminds me of something that happened many years ago. My then boyfriend had a mate who had been taken to hospital with a torsion or twisted testicle very unpleasant I am sure. We arrived to visit him and his bed was hidden by curtains. We waited and a split second later we heard an exasperated nurse chivvy him saying "this is the third time I have checked the dressing this morning!" At that point the curtains parted and a very pretty young nurse came out. We teased him about it for years.

    bladder stones? Sean, have you been giving him red wine to drink?

    I feel for you. All that worry. Frosty does the paws up on the counter thing too. She's not that tall so I don't know how she does it.

    Poor Mojo, hope he gets better soon Sean! We're having a bit of unknown illness troubles with Meika too so I know just how frustrating it is!

    Bladder stones are friggin painful. I am positive you would KNOW something is very wrong with mojo, if it were stones.

    Hope the big fella gets better soon.
    UTI's really make you feel like you have flu. I wonder if it is the same for dogs? Poor Mojo. Bronx can hold the fort for a week till big bro is back in action.

    Thanks guys...the bladder stones is a long shot especially with his age aparently ,but until the tests are done they wont rule anything out...even the big 'c'.

    Best case scenario means i'll be leaving him at the kennels while i'm in Bali in a week and a half.....and relying on them to make sure he gets his meds.....not somthing i'm really comfortable doing. Not great timing but at least we discovered somthing wrong before it got any worse.

    Ah poor big boy. Give him lots of big cuddles from us. Like emma, I sincerely hope you get some answers before you go on your holiday, would be hard to enjoy while worrying if he's ok.

    Oooh – ‘ Sean’ this is not good news about Mojo.

    How is he today ?

    Have you contacted his breeder to tell them what has happened ?

    Heaps and Heaps of best-of-luck-graphic-07.jpg wishes for Thursday !

    I really hope that they find out what is wrong with your poor pup

    Thanks Guys..

    Riley, Mojo is totally fine running around like a mad dog.....he hasnt shown any signs of illness whatsoever so it was just a fluke we found it. The bleeding as such has really slowed down and it was only a stick test with the urine that showed there was still blood present.

    I'm a bit reluctant to talk to my breeder about it because naughty me was supposed to get the big fella desexed at 6 months...somthing i really didnt want to do.

    The vet said it might have to be done wether i like it or not depending on the test results. Fingers crossed they come back saying its just a infection and nothing else. The waiting till thursday bit is killing me though but the tests wont be correct if we do them any earlier because of the pills he was taking for the last week.
