Q. My female German shorthair has a urine ph of 8 which we are trying to correct with diet but now she has blood and blood clots in her urine

Answered By

A. Bringing her back in for care is your best bet as there may be stones in the bladder or kidneys causing the bleeding to occur. Your vet may recommend an X-ray or ultrasound or bloodwork to determine kidney function as well as check for stones or growths that could be causing the clotting you are seeing.
