Blood in Dog Urine From Stress
I've been caring for my daughter's 3 Miniature Schnauzers for a year. She is in college 3 hours away. They went to stay with her for a week and I picked them up last night. We stayed at another daughters house last night before going home.
This morning while I was packing to leave one of the dogs had an accident on the floor. There was a round circle of blood at the end of the urine. I'm not sure which one did it.
I suspect it might be the youngest because he has a tendency to follow me around. He is almost 1 and 1/2 years old and the urine was in the path I was walking. There is also a mixed golden retriever in the house that is very old. I got a cloth and wiped all the dogs at the bottom but could not tell which one did it. I don't have a vet here and by the time I get home my vet will be closed.
Is there anything I can do until I can get him to a vet. I'm afraid I won't be able to see a vet until Monday.Editor Suggestion Blood in Dog Urine Problem
