Worried about Archie
Archie, who just turned 8 years old, had surgery about 7 months ago to remove a bladder stone. His dog sitter noticed that when he peed, he did not have a stream of urine. After his surgery I put him on Royal Canin Urinary so, per my vet, and he seemed fine. However, about 3 months ago he started to just dribble urine instead of producing a stream. Thinking he had another stone I brought him back to the vet. He has had an x-ray and ultrasound and there are no bladder stones. He has been on an antibiotic and 2 other types of medications - one to strengthen his muscles and another that is a hormone. There has been no difference. My vet now wants me to take him to a specialist to do a scope and figure out what is happening. He is not incontinent - no peeing in the house. When he is outside, even first thing in the morning, he produces a few drops, like a leaky faucet, and then dribbles some more when done. He does this several times.
I am wondering if anyone else's dog had something similar or anyone has any ideas about this.
