Urinary Obstruction


It is important for everyone who owns a pet to make sure that he or she receives proper care. There are a number of common reasons why a pet might require a visit to the local doctor. When this happens, it is important for everyone in Waldorf to find the right veterinarian to take care of their furry friend. At Waldorf Emergency Care, we are here to make sure that every animal has access to the high-quality hospital that he or she deserves. One of the common problems that we see is urinary obstruction.

Symptoms of Urinary Obstruction

Urinary obstruction is both a common and serious problem. This medical condition develops when a pet is unable to void properly. There is something obstructing the bladder that prevents urine from being voided in the proper manner. There are a number of common causes of urinary obstruction. In some cases, there is a stone that is blocking the opening of the urethra. In other cases, swelling may cause the urethral opening to close. When this happens, pets are unable to void.

Pets who develop this condition will become visibly uncomfortable as the bladder continues to swell. There might be little drips of urine throughout the house that slip around the obstruction. In other cases, pet owners may even notice blood in the urine. These are all signs that a pet requires the attention of a trained veterinarian who knows how to deal with this problem.
