Any ideas?

Okay guys, earlier today my nan noticed our 11yr old yorkshire terrier was looking rather unwell. She noticed he wouldnt jump up on the sofa like he normally does and he kept walking around with his back slightly arched.. on closer inspection we could see his belly was swollen too. We booked an appointment at the vets for 11:10am.

Hes been quiet all evening and just sleeping mainly. He only lays on his side, or curls up, but wont lay on his front. About 15mins ago (its 2am now) I looked at him as he rolled over and noticed that he has started bleeding from his penis. I'm almost certain this is bad news. :(

Is there any ideas what this could be? I need my mind put at ease because I havent had to deal with a death in close family since 1997 and I don't think I can cope with one right now. I'm really stressing because I dont deal with deaths well at all so I really hope my dog is okay.

I'm sorry to hear your dog is unwell. Unfortunately I'm totally clueless on this subject, but i just wanted to wish you all the best at the vets. Good luck and hopefully he'll be ok xxx

Hi Captain. I've done some research on this, and your dog could be suffering from any number of things. So you've done the right thing by taking him along to the vet this morning to get an expert opinion. Just give your dog lots of cuddles and let him know that you're there for him. I hope it goes well today.

Hey

Last night he was having trouble walking up the stairs so I was gonna sleep down here with him, as I was about to come down the stairs with my cover and pillow he came running up and went into mums room lol. Well, today we took him to the vet and the vet gave him two injections. He thinks its cystitis (sp?) and said if he isnt better in a week we have to take him back. Hopefully he will be okay. He seems happier today and is laying on his belly abit which he wouldnt do yesterday.

So fingers crossed he'll get better.

Thanks for the well wishes and advice. We've all been petting him more than usual (as if he didnt get enough already lol) :)

I was thinking of you and your dog today, Captain, so I'm really pleased for you. I know what it's like having a sick dog that just looks at you with pleading eyes, as if to say "help me"... :P

hehe :D Peps had a bath and hair cut since that pic.

I'm still abit worried about him really. Hes resting alot tonight. So hopefully he'll be okay in a few days. The vet said one of his glands is swollen (can't remember what its called but its 'down there') I'll probably feel abit better once i've seen him get better over a few days.

Ah, what a little cutie! (so's Peppy, hun... :wink: :P )

Cystitis is easy to sort out in humans, I'm sure he'll be ok soon. Just keep giving him loads of attention, he'll really take advantage of you! :D And keep us up-to-date on his progress, ok?

hehe You smooth talker peecee ;)

Well, little Peppy is alot happier today. Hes jumped up on my lap a few times, seems to be walking around alot, going outside and also stretching (he wouldnt do that) He even looks better in the eyes too. So hopefully he'll continue to get better. :D Last night I put 4 cushions on the floor next to the PC so he could lay next to me whilst I was online. Gave him lots of TLC lately and I think hes been lovin' it ;) :D
