Does my Dog have a Urinary Tract Infection?

by Romina Camacho
(United States)

My dog is not even one year old and I noticed the tip of his penis has turned red and there is a green thick substance coming out of it.

His energy seems to be gone as well, all he wants to do is sleep and lay face down which is weird because he loves to lay belly up. what could be wrong with him?

I am planning on taking him to the vet but I do not have any money right now for that and i would like to know how much it would be to get him examined and treated.

Hi Romina,

Based on the symptoms you described, it sounds like your dog may be suffering from a urinary tract infection or an infection in his reproductive system. This can cause discomfort and pain, which can explain why he is lethargic and not as energetic as usual.

It's important to take your dog to a vet as soon as possible to get him the treatment he needs to recover.

As for the cost of an examination and treatment, it will depend on the vet and the specific treatment needed. It's best to call around to different vet clinics in your area to get an estimate of the cost. Some vets may offer payment plans or financial assistance to help make the cost more manageable. In the meantime, you can try to keep your dog comfortable by providing him with a quiet and comfortable place to rest, fresh water, and access to the outdoors to relieve himself.

Best to you and your dog,
