General information on Obstructed Bladder
A dog that strains or has obvious difficulty passing urine, is probably suffering from a blockage in the bladder outlet or urethra. Stones in the bladder or urethra are the most common causes. However, tumors, strictures, and infections are at times the cause.
Symptoms of Obstructed Bladder
The symptoms of an Obstructed Bladder are recognized in a dog that stands in a splay-legged stance while painfully trying to urinate. A partial obstruction can be suspected when the dog begins to dribble, urinates frequently, and has a weak spattery stream. Pressure on the abdomen beneath the pelvis may reveal a swollen, tender bladder, which feels like a large ball in front of the pelvis.
Treatments for Obstructed Bladder
Please consult your veterinarian. Complete obstruction of the bladder is a medical emergency. A catheter must be inserted into the bladder to provide relief.
