Dog ate chocolate?

ask a vet

Dog can't pee.

Species: Dog
Breed: Siberian husky
Age: 1-2 years
I was outside today and I looked over at my dog. He bent over to pee but no pee came out. Should I be concerned?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

It is always a serious matter when a dog can't urinate. There are several possibilities.

It's possible that your dog has a bladder stone that has moved into the urethra. If a stone is in the urethra then this is a life threatening emergency. The dog will be either unable to urinate or able to urinate a tiny amount.

Another possibility is a urinary tract infection which is making Jack feel like he has to urinate even when there is no urine there.

In either case, this dog needs to see a vet right away!
