Default Blood in Urine for Two Months

Hi, I am the proud owner of Oliver, our 11 year old standard poodle. I am at a loss what to do next with him. He has blood in his urine and has for a couple months, but otherwise is fine. He doesn't urinate frequently. We've gone through lots of testing with him-ultrasound, blood tests, multiple urine testing and they still can't figure what is wrong with him. The vet is "baffled" as she says. The only thing they have found is his bladder lining is its' irregular and debris floating in the bladder. His blood test are, for the most part, fine, except his basophilis .33and the ALT is 207, which is high, but has always been elavated.

The next step is a cystoscopy or cystotomy. The cost is over $3K. I have already spent over $2.3K. He is currently on urinary tract medication, but his urine is still not normal. It is very bloody.

Welcome to Poodle Forum! Sorry Oliver is going through all this! I know it can be frustrating and I hope what ever the cause is will surface soon. Oliver is lucky to have an owner like you who is willing to do all this.

Did they do an ultrasound of the kidneys too?

To me it sounds like crystals, in my experience a pH test is done and the urine is looked at under a microscope, but this is usually the first thing done.

Have they done a pH test? Did they say that the debris was not crystals?

Welome!

Sorry to hear about the persistent problem. Sounds like you need to seek a referral to an internal medicine specialist (if you havent already) to perform a proper cystoscopy. Irregular bladder walls can be something like simple cystitis, infection or the start of TCC. The blood could also be coming from higher up in the ureters or kidneys, or lower down in the urethera (this can be ruled out by obtaining cysto sample). Im assuming they have sent the urine for culture.

catsaqqara - pH tests are part of a routine urinalysis. Debris can be comprised of crystals, stones, sludge, cellular debris etc. and often a combination of several.
