Pyuria in Dogs

Pyruria is a medical condition that is characterized by white blood cells in the urine. Large numbers of white blood cells in voided urine samples can indicate an active inflammation somewhere along the urogenital tract.

Normal dog urine should be yellow. The “shade” of yellow can normally range from pale or “straw-colored” to amber, based on your dog`s hydration status and a few other factors, but it should be yellow nonetheless.
Typically, green urine indicates late-stage kidney failure, cancer of the kidneys, or extremely severe urinary tract infection. Urine may turn green because bilirubin makes its way into the kidneys, where it is not supposed to be.
Dogs with UTIs generally attempt to urinate very frequently whenever they go outside. They also may strain to urinate, or cry out or whine when urinating if it is painful. Sometimes you might even see blood in their urine. Dripping urine, or frequent licking of the genitals, may also signal that a UTI is present.
The bottom line. If you notice white particles in your urine, it`s likely from genital discharge or a problem in your urinary tract, such as kidney stones or possible infection. If you have significant symptoms that accompany the white particles in your urine, you may want to see your doctor.
A dark yellow to green colored urine results from bilirubin spilling into the kidneys, which can be brought about by the destruction of red blood cells within the circulatory system (as seen with diseases like Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia), and liver or gall bladder disease.
Red, Pink, or Red-Orange or Reddish Brown Pet Urine

The most common diagnosis is a UTI (urinary tract infection), in which case it should also take on a cloudy appearance. Red-tinted pet urine might be an indication of: lower urinary tract disorder. cystitis.

Color changes in urine are a normal indicator of the constantly fluctuating state of a healthy dog`s internal organs throughout the day. For example, the first morning urination is the most concentrated and therefore is often darker in color.
Some of the earliest signs of kidney disease in dogs may include subtle weight loss, urinating/peeing more often and drinking a lot more water. Therefore, if you notice your dog is peeing on the floor or asking to go out more, or if your dog is always thirsty, it`s time to visit your veterinarian.
Symptoms of Renal Disease & Renal Failure in Dogs

Drinking too much and producing large volumes of urine. General depression associated with elevation of waste products in blood. Overall weakness caused by low potassium in the blood. Increased volume of urine in the bladder.

Urinary Tract Infections, better known as a UTI, are extremely common in puppies. The puppy`s frequent urination and inability to control when and where he goes is often misinterpreted by pet owners as a behavioral problem.
A common cause of frequent peeing in puppies, especially females, is a urine tract infection. Puppies with urine infections will often strain to pass small amounts of urine frequently. And there may sometimes be some blood visible. Urine infections often require treatment with antibiotics.
Can UTIs go away on their own? Some uncomplicated UTIs go away on their own without the use of antibiotics. However, keep in mind that there are risks to leaving UTIs untreated, such as the infection spreading to other parts of the body.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) may also cause an abnormal appearance of the urine such as cloudiness, brown or red color, or an unusual smell.
Why Urine Discolored Occurs in Dogs. Changes in urine color occur commonly from amount of water consumption, kidney or bladder stones, liver disease, muscle damage, and sometimes blood loss into the body. It is very important to monitor your pet and take note of the urine color.
The urine analysis for your pet will also look for things that should not be in pet urine. This can be protein, sugar, or blood. Any one of these substances in your pet`s urine will mean that the vet will have to run further tests to check for diabetes, urinary tract infections, bacterial infections, or kidney stones.
If your pet`s pee is bright or dark yellow, it is most likely due to dehydration or other issues with the kidneys. It could be caused by a lack of adequate drinking water or because of other medical conditions. If you notice that your pet`s urine is bright or dark yellow, consult your veterinarian immediately.
Urinary Tract Infection: This condition generally causes a dog`s urine to smell like rotten fish or extremely sour.
Green pee in dogs usually means severe anemia, cancer, some urinary tract infections (UTIs,) and liver or gallbladder disease. It happens when bilirubin spills into the kidneys, causing dark yellow or green pee.
Urinary Tract Issues

If your dog suddenly starts peeing in the house (or other unacceptable places), it could be caused by a urinary tract infection.1 This is one of the most common reasons for inappropriate urination and one of the most frequently seen health problems in dogs.

You can recognize advancing dehydration in your dog by checking his or her skin`s elasticity. Gently pinch a small amount of skin on your dog`s back and release it. If your dog`s skin does not snap immediately back in place, your dog may be dehydrated. You can also check for dehydration by examining your dog`s gums.
The yellow color in balanced urine comes from urochrome, a waste product that comes from the breakdown of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that enables oxygen to travel around the body. Red blood cells are renewed in their millions every day, so the body needs to break down old cells.
If your dog has kidney issues, they may feel generally unwell, which can manifest itself in various ways. Some of the most common problems are nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, frequent whining and whimpering, and any of the following symptoms: Excessive sleepiness.

Q. Which flea and tick drops are the best and why?
ANSWER : A. Your question is a good one, and unfortunately the answers are going to differ based on who you ask. Many vets are seeing resistance to Frontline, which has been the go-to product for many of us for many years. It contains the active ingredient Fipronil, which is very safe and typically extremely effective. I use it on my dogs and never see fleas or ticks. However other vets will tell you in their areas, for whatever reason, they are seeing fleas and ticks on dogs and cats on which this product was used.

Another reason opinions differ is that some people like to give an oral product, and some like to put a topical product directly on the skin. That’s a matter of personal preference mostly. Bravecto, as mentioned below, is one of those products. Most people find it safe and effective. It uses a different process that Frontline to kill fleas and ticks.

In general the products you buy over-the-counter are likely going to be less expensive and less effective than what you get from a vet. I think the reason is that the more expensive products contain newer insecticides, and likely less resistance to these products has built up in the flea and tick population but also they are maybe less “proven”, so it’s important for a vet to be involved in the use of the product in order to ensure that there won’t be a negative reaction to using it.

If I lived in an area where there was Lyme disease (in the US that’s the northeast and upper midwest) I’d most definitely add a tick collar to my standard oral or topical flea and tick prevention. AND I’d search both of my dogs everyday for ticks. It’s because nothing you buy will be 100% effective, and Lyme disease can be a very serious problem.

If you want to talk further and talk more specifically about where you live and what products you’re considering, I’d be happy to do a consult with you. Nobody here is paid to recommend products, but we do develop preferences based on what we use on our own pets and in our practices.

Q. How can I remove internal ticks?
ANSWER : A. If you mean the ticks are embedded deeply in the skin, you can use a pair of tweezers to gently remove the tick. If the head becomes detached, most healthy bodies will push the head out of the skin naturally over a period of time. Using Vaseline over the tick can also sometimes cause it to back out on its own and be removed. Getting your dog on a monthly flea and tick preventative can help prevent future ticks from hopping on, also, if you are in an area where tick-borne disease are a problem it is always a good idea to have any tick bites examined by your local veterinarian.

If you mean the ticks were eaten, they will most likely pass through your dog without problem. However if you suspect there is an issue, your vet should take a look.

Q. I just took off 4 imbedded ticks. Looks like 2 of the spot are redistribution and might have a piece of the tick still attached ,what should I do
ANSWER : A. If you can gently remove the portion of the tick you can see with tweezers you can try that. Usually leaving the head behind doesn’t cause additional problems, and the body will gradually expel it. If you see excessive swelling, or if your dog is bothered by these, I would recommend taking him in for care to see if your vet can get the parts left behind out. And depending on where you live (i.e. If tick-borne diseases like Lyme are a concern) watch your dog carefully for signs of illness following this infestation. And consider using a veterinary product to prevent tick bites.

Q. I have a 10 year old mutt who is hyper but doesn’t like hyper dogs. Getting another dog from a shelter soon any ideas on calm breeds?
ANSWER : A. If your dog is uncomfortable with other dogs (of any sort), it is important that you bring your current dog to the shelter so he can meet the dog you plan to adopt. You should check out your local shelter, and walk around looking at all of the dogs. Mixed breeds have mixed amounts of energy and it’s tough to recommend a breed. I suppose I would say calm breeds would be the Great Pyrenees, the Newfoundland, the Bernese Mountain dog CAN be a calm breed.. really with any breed you will have mixed litters. Many breeders breed specifically the “calm” Newfies, or the “hyper” Bernese. If you are going to adopt from a shelter however, it’s impossible to expect that level of breeding.

As I said, just be sure you bring your dog along so you can slowly introduce the dogs. If your dog is uncomfortable, immediately separate them, and try again in a couple of minutes. You don’t want to force them to get along, and you don’t want to move too quickly when introducing them.

Q. My dog appears to have a bite possibly from a tick on her skin, it is red and lumpy but I cannot see a tick. What do you recommend
ANSWER : A. A tick’s bite can be very irritating and frequently results in a ‘granuloma’ after the tick completes feeding and drops off. These granulomas typically resolve in a week or two. Monitor for redness or discharge. Keep the site clean and dry. Prevent licking or scratching if possible. Use a monthly tick preventative such as Frontline Plus, K9 Advantix or Vectra to prevent tick bites.

Q. My 12 year old Border Collie/healer mix has a baseball size hematoma under her chest. I am wondering if she would survive the surgery.
ANSWER : A. My first question (if you could answer me back) would be how does anyone know it’s a hematoma, and not a hemangiosarcoma or a hemangioma? Hematomas usually resolve (eventually) on their own – they’re essentially bruises. So they don’t need to be surgically removed, typically. It could also be a hemangioma, which is a benign growth arising from a blood vessel. Typically no one can tell on cytology alone (that’s a needle sample taken from the mass and examined under a microscope) whether a growth like this is cancerous (hemangiosarcoma, or HSA) or benign (hemangioma, or HA). If a biopsy has been done and a diagnosis of HSA has been made, or it’s a HA and it’s causing your dog pain or discomfort, then I would agree that surgery is necessary.

As to whether she would survive the surgery, if your vet is competent in anesthesia (preoperative blood work and chest x-rays have been done to ensure that your dog is healthy otherwise, anesthetic monitoring on blood pressure, heart rate, EKG, oxygenation, etc will be done) and the mass is in a spot that is amenable to removal (i.e. There is plenty of skin in the area to close over the defect created by the excision) then I would say her chances of survival are very good. All this is assuming that the mass is subcutaneous (under the skin) and not actually inside the chest. If it’s in the chest, that’s a much more serious procedure. You can select “consult” if you want to talk about this further.

Q. I have a 3 month old puppy and just found 2 ticks in her ear. I pulled the ticks out but now she seems lethargic. Should I take her to the vet
ANSWER : A. Yes, I would have her checked over by your vet. It is likely that you have left the head of the ticks under the skin and it could cause irritation and infection. Your vet will also be able to prescribe the best treatment for fleas and ticks and show you how to safely remove ticks for future reference.
