Particles in the Urine in Dogs




If your dog has become dehydrated as a result of this condition, it will be hospitalized and rehydrated intravenously; otherwise, your veterinarian will most likely recommend normal food and exercise.


Living and Management


Unless your dog is dehydrated and must stay in the hospital, you will feed and treat it as you usually do. However, you will need to follow a check-up regimen as directed by your doctor. There are many things that could cause this, most of them serious, so it is important to follow your doctor’s directions for providing the care your dog needs.
