Re: Low Urine Flow

The x-ray showed little by way of stones. We had an x-ray with an interpretation performed. *The abdominal cavity is normal. Upon air being placed in the bladder it adequately distended with gas. *The walls are thin and dorsal aspect of the urinary bladder could not be assessed because the colon was...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

...so while I was looking up IBS and other dog ailments I came across this site. I'm sure I've been to the site before but don't remember the video. Not knowing if it is a 'good' site or not, I'll post this. Please let me know if there are better resources. from MaristaVet.com "A mast cell, coa...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Thanks for getting back! I'll need to leave a message and see what it was. I don't have the printed results. Even though I know they are more common in Dalmations, with Capone I've learned to rule out nothing lol Honestly the flow problems just come and go. It's almost like he's got an internal infl...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Ultrasound and x-rays rule out stones - not wishes or hopes... Does your pet eat a high protein diet? If so, thats the most likely cause of acidic urine. Unless there are stones, its not a real concern. He had been eating a grain free diet with 30% protein called Annamaet. http://www.annamaet.com/h...

Re: Low Urine Flow

OK, so the vet called Monday (they have him all week while were out of town) and the vet said his urine is the most normal he's ever seen. No infection. BUT He said it is very acidic. So much so that he would like us to add baking soda to his diet to get some calcium bicarb into him. I reminded him ...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Thanks for asking Well, truth be told, I'm waiting until Saturday. He goes to board at the vet Saturday which means a car ride. For Capone, a car ride is the worse stress ever. It is horrific. Which also means that his poop will be horrible. Which also means he will be hyper vigilant for a day of tw...

well that makes a lot of sense. I did not think of that either. When you get so wrapped up in the big stuff, the little stuff escapes me.

Re: Low Urine Flow

A simple urinalysis is a good start. To be 100% sure it is or is not an infection, a urine culture by cystocentesis (use a needle and syringe to get urine directly from the bladder) is the next step. When things are clear-cut in a young healthy dog I will skip it, if there is any question, or if th...

Re: Low Urine Flow

was your vet open today, if so what did vet say it is? Vet was open today, husband home with Capone, flow normal if not HUGE. Explain, how that can happen ?!?!?!? My cat with IBD got a really bad series of UTIs when she had a really bad prolonged IBD flare up of diarrhea. VERY possible it's an UTI ...

Re: Low Urine Flow

It could be a simple UTI. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you find an easy-to-diagnose, simple-to-fix issue! No kidding! Me too! Poor guy has been through the ringer over the last 6 months. Thanks. You would have thought the 1+ week of Cipro would have taken care of any infection in him. Right ...

Re: Low Urine Flow

I should also say from what I can see he has no blood in the urine. It is still his normal very clear yet still stinky pee.

Low Urine Flow

...FML... we've gone from over pooping to under peeing. So I need some advice from you all. Capone has had 6 months of difficult poop issues. We finally have a decent handle on it. (1 week and counting) Tomorrow I'm going to need to take him to the vet AGAIN for the other body waste - urine. (As I'm...

Re: Plop, plop, poop

so have you totally felt like a moron? Well today I do. Yesterday morning, I was fumbling around in the dark feeding the idiots. I accidentally placed Flower's food in front of Capone. So duh, he started eating. In just a couple of seconds I noticed my error and picked up the bowl and swapped them o...
