Urinary Obstructions Require Immediate Attention
At Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic in Lewistown and Juniata Veterinary Clinic in Mifflintown, we care about your pet’s health. That is why we provide our services from two convenient locations to best serve our community. Your pet cannot tell you specifically what is going on with his body and it is important that you know the signs of some possibly dangerous medical conditions that can appear in your pet.
Urinary Obstruction Signs In Your Pet:
- Behaving out of the range of normal for your pet.
- Frequent urination but only small amounts of drops come out.
- Blood in the urine.
- Urinating in areas where he typically does not.
- Taking too long to urinate.
- Whining or crying.
- If it advances to a bladder infection then fever and lethargy will likely develop.
It is important to know the signs of urinary obstructions because the situation can quickly become an emergency for your pet. Contact one of our veterinarians if your pet begins to display these signs. We will take action to alleviate your pet’s pain and possibly even save his life. If no kidney damage has occurred, the prognosis is good for a full recovery. Quick medical attention is important when dealing with an animal with a urinary obstruction.
