Hi all,
Please help, our Boxer George is 4 yrs old he has been suffering from blood in his urine for approx 12 months. He has been different types of medication and also had lots of tests ie urine samples and xrays. All the tests have not shown any problems however he is still unwell.

At the moment he is on antibiotic tablets  ( marbocyl ) we have now been told by our vet that the next step is to either do an exploritary examination or refer him to a specialist. If anybody has had the same problems or can shine some light on what may be wrong with George I would be very grateful, thankyou.

I would go to a specialist!!!!! Why the vet didnt suggest that earlier I dont know!!! 12 months seems to be an awefully long time to have blood in his urine :cry:  Poor boy! I would also consider the exploratory surgery but thats me and by the sounds of it I wouldnt let your vet do it (Id go get a second opinion)

Thank you for your advise, we have decided to ask the vet on monday if it is worth having another blood test just before we decide to go ahead with the exploratiry examination, any advise in the mean time is very much appreciated, thanks again.
