Well yesterday I went home early to deal with contractors...and while outside my dog started to pee and it was a pure red stream. Jordan is 14 and was given 2 weeks to live in May 2006...with surgery.. which he had he was given 3 months to live...so every day now is just a bonus. I thought his kidneys were failing due to complications with his arthritis medicine.
Anyway... I called the vet and they said to bring in a urine sample. On the way to the vets to drop off the sample... my partner called and said that Jordan had gotten into the garbage...which had some veggie scraps in it...to include skins from roasted beets. So I told this to the vet. The didn't even bother sending it to the lab...as it turns out...there was no blood in his urine..it was the beets turning his urine red. I guess this can happen to people too...fyi!
