i just found it on his wee-wee pad & it's the 1st time it's happened...he's a 6 month old, neutered male bichon frise puppy (paddington)...he's been acting totally fine today & tonight, so i don't know what's up...we got back from his weekly puppy play group 2 hours ago & he had a blast...should i rush him to the ER tonight or can he be seen by his regular vet tomorrow (?)...he's not showing any signs of distress & i don't know what to do :s:shrugs::wondering

Yes, if he is not showing any signs of distress, not panting, and is eating, etc. I would take him tomorrow. Can you get in tomorrow?

^^ thanks sweetie, he's acting totally fine otherwise (eating, drinking, not panting)...they asked me that over the phone too, just to make sure...my DH will be home & can take him tomorrow, so that won't be a problem...i'll call 1st thing in the AM when they open & make an appointment...my poor little baby boy, i hope he's not too uncomfortable :sad:

I would wait for the morning. I am sure they will do everything they can to get him. And worst case, you may have to drop him off so they can get a urine sample. If you can, you can always try to get one on your own. Just make sure that you don't use a glass jar that has had anything sugary in it. You can try using a tupperware. When he is going to pee, just try to get the container under him. When I worked as a vet tech, one owner swore by taping a tuperware to the end of a yardstick. If you can't get it, don't worry. It's sometimes dogs may hold it when they are at the vet office.

when my bichon was seven he started peeing blood every so often. i brought him to the vet and it turned out he had bladder stones, so surgery was necessary. he's now on a prescription diet and is not allowed treats or human food.

i doubt that your little guy has the same thing since he's so young. plus, my dog was peeing A LOT more than just a little blood. hope he's okay!

^^ welp, my DH brought paddington to the vet this AM & they put him on antibiotics...they didn't provide a diagnosis, but did some bloodwork (which we'll get back in a few days)...they said if he's got an infection, the meds will knock it out...i guess they don't think his symptoms require x-rays or anything yet...but we'll definitely keep a close eye on him & his pee-pee (lol!!!)...thanks again for all of your thoughtful replies :hugs:

Good to hear, bama...hope Paddington's bloodwork comes back normal and the meds do the trick. I love his name, by the way!
