Just taken brian out for a pee, and what came out was thick, lumpy blood. Poor thing. Only pee'd for a second or two, then stopped. For anyone that's had a UTI, im sure you like i can sympathize.
In the past 2 days, he's lost a LOT of condition, began to stink (to my ever sensitive nose), and voila! peeing blood.
He's down, and listless, personality change, weight loss, dull coat, lame also. Been lame for a week. Improves with rest (crate) deteriorates rapidly to lame if let out. Clearly in pain.
Im now worried sick, that this is more than a UTI. We are off to vet tonight, and i want a blood test. I have just been alerted to him laying at my feet, by his smell. Its gross. And i realise, in the year we've had him, im now fretting about losing him. This breed is well known for only living to 5yrs due to cancers or coronaries.
