• My Great Dane is having problems Urinating. He’s trying to P but only drops of Uranus coming out with a little drops of blood

    Hi Hope,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian immediately, if you have not already done so. Not being able to urinate is an emergency and it can lead to a backup of toxins in the body that can become life threatening quickly. There can be a couple of different causes for this including bladder stones, a UTI, or a mucous plug. Your vet may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose the underlying cause and to guide the needed treatment. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of his symptoms.
