Urinary tract blockage
Dr. Sherry Weaver
Straining and crying while posturing to urinate without the production of urine constitutes an emergency. Call the animal hospital immediately regarding an evaluation. Without appropriate treatment, your pet can die. Urinary tract problems do not lend themselves well to first aid therapy or herbal remedies.
If you believe your dog is unable to urinate, do not delay: seek veterinary attention immediately!
