Worried about Yogi
I took Yogi to the Vet two weeks ago for whining while pooping, sudden voiding in the house and then I notice lower stomach tenderness when I went to pick him up (I seldom pick him up as he does most things on his own). At the vet they did x rays, blood work, and invasive physical examination he moaned and whined but stood still for it. He had blood in his urine, but there were no strictures, stones, no polyps and the test came back neg. for crystals. He has a UTI but after two weeks he is not better, there is no more voiding in the house but, he comes to me even in the house to poop and whines and carries on. The vet put him on Prednisone three days ago. This morning when all the dogs were out doing there business he ran back in and pooped in front of me making pitiful sounds.
We are going back to the Vet today for an ultra sound and more blood work. I am very worried about him. He still is sore in the lower stomach area, he will climb stairs and get on the bed but mostly stays on the floor (it is hot here). We always have apple cider in the drinking water because it helps blind Boo Boo fine the water if it gets moved.

Poohkey miss you, monkey.
