Recently my girlfriend and I went for an extended weekend trip and left our pug Marleau at the Petsmart Pet Hotel while we were gone. He was able to go to doggy day camp during the day and had an ice cream and a kong treat while he was there. On the 2nd day that he was there we got a call from the staff at the hotel telling us that Marleau had blood in his urine. They took him to the Vet and took a culture to see if he had a Urinary Tract Infection. They gave him antibiotics and we have continued giving him the meds since we have gotten back and he has not peed any blood at all. The vet called and let us know that there is no sign of a UTI and that he thinks that the blood was a result of him missing us. Since everything has happened Marleau has been his same playful, energetic/lazy self. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this and what was the outcome? This is my first pug and I am not sure if this is something normal or something major. The vet seems like a great vet but I am a little uncomfortable with his final assesment, Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think it is a wise decision to explore getting a second opinion, blood in the urine is not something to be taken lightly and a bit of anxiety separation happening doesn't seem to me would go to that extreme. I say this because I read no where in what you have said about Marleau showing outward signs of the anxiety part. Trust me, it would be quite noticeable to them. Many things could have led up to this occurrence, an injury by another larger dog while they were being exorcised. Blood in the urine is not good. Did they just take a culture, no blood work? Do some research on your own via the internet regarding this occurrence and its possible cause then find a vet that has experience with pugs. That is one of my 'must do's'. When I showed dogs in other states I would call ahead and find a Vet that had exposure to pugs, just to be on the safe side. My current vet of some 12 years now is versed on pugs. When I first moved to this town I set up an appointment with him for the purpose of getting to know him and how he ran his practice. He was able to answer questions to my satisfaction that are little known things concerning the breed that only exposure to them would bring out. I hope that what has occurred is an isolated incident with Marleau, however, were it me I would not be ready to settle on that feeling just yet.
I just took my puggie to the vet today because of blood in her urine....she has a UTI....I did catch right away...so it isnt too bad....but I also found some crystally like stuff that was in her urine....she is on meds now...and hopefully she will be good to go in a few days...Roxys urine wasnt too bloody...was there alot of blood?...if so, take your baby in to get checked by another vet...its always good to get a few opinions.....my pug has seperation anxiety too, but it hasnt caused blood in the urine....I hope he feels better soon....
