Has anyone had to deal with this with their doggys? Fatboy had blood in his urine last night, so I took him to the vet this morning. He's urinating fine, but the vet is saying he'll have to be castrated to have stones removed. Is this accurate? So far he is pee'ing fine (no pain or strain). I'm kind of worried and irritated because I asked for Butchko, but we were given another Vet. I feel like she doesn't know what she's doing.
Fatboy had a urine analysis, so I'll know the results tomorrow morning. She also did a ultrasound and said she thought she could see a small obstruction in his urethra. She wanted to use a catheter but decided against it because she didn't want to cause an irritation.
Also, she gave him a bunch of medications for what might be a food allergy issue. Would you consider this a red flag? Fatboy has never ending skin fold and eye issues. His infection in his fold keeps coming back, so she gave him Enrofloxacin, ketoconazole, and gentocin (for his eye goubers). I'm on my way to the pet store to hopefully get another dog food. My poor boy has tried almost everything; he just can't get a break. I'm taking him off the dehydrated raw and trying Nature's Variety Instinct.
I feel like I'm doing everything wrong with him. Any advice, insight or words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated. I really don't want him to be castrated; this option seems really extreme.
