Can you please help me, I am very scared?

I have a Chesapeake bay retriever and she is very sick. I found out that she is peeing blood, is severely dehydrated, and has diarrhea, can anyone tell me what this can be? Could it be stress induced? we just got a new puppy that she doesn't like at all. My mom took her to the vet, I called my mom back but she never answered, so right now i have no idea whats going on, she is only 5 years old, i'm just looking for some answers

Blood when she pees is usually a sign bladder infection if she isn't able to go outside for long periods, and is holding it, this can cause such infections... usually the vet will give an antibiotic to treat and clear this up.. as far as the diarrhea is could be cause by something she ate, but if Prolonged for several days then it becomes an issue and causes dehydration.. I Doubt that this "new dog" is the overall cause of all the issues however have you taken steps to let her know she isn't being "replaced?" and is still loved as ever? gotta see what the vet thinks about her overall health

Regardless of whether or not this has been stress-induced, this dog sounds very sick. The dehydration is naturally caused by diarrhea and peeing blood is VERY awful. Could be kidney problems, anything. It's very serious and if your mom took the dog she needs to contact you! This dog needs some tests done and medicine. I hope medicine can help. Hang in there.

The first thing they'll likely do when she gets there is start rehydrating her, once that has begun they will be able to find the root of the problem. They'll be able to do blood tests to find out what is causing the problem. They'll start her on an antibiotic and will likely want to keep her overnight to monitor and continue getting her fluids back to normal. With vet help, it's likely she will be okay and home within a few days. I'm only assuming these will be their actions just to give you an idea of how things may be going. I'm sure you'll get an update soon, good luck.

As others have said, it's unlikely that stress will cause blood in her urine. Loose stools is a possibility. Don't panic, it could well be something as comparatively simple as cystitis which on it's own is painful, but not, if treated correctly, normally life threatening. The only thing you can do is wait to hear what happened at the vet. And it needed treating not only for your older b itch, but in case she has something to pass onto the puppy. Hope it turns out okay.

She could have a bladder infection or some other infection. But, she should be fine. Taking her to the vet is definately a good idea. The vet will be able to diagnos and provide whatever medicine is needed to clear up the infection. She'll be fine. Don't worry.

Blood in her urine is NOT being caused by stress (She could get diarrhea from stress however). It could be something as simple as a UTI (Bladder Infection). Don't stress out until you talk to your Mom - Getting her to the Vet was the right thing to do.

It could be a lot of things. Just try and be patient and get your mind off of it, if she is being seen by a vet there is nothing you can do. Read a book or watch TV, anything that may take the edge off. Thinking about it will accomplish nothing other than making you miserable.

Could be a unrinary tract infection that wasn't caught soon enough, so it turned out to be really bad. Could be a tumor, could be anything really. I hope she ends up being ok. Glad she is at the vet, she is in the best place she can be, they will do all they can. Good luck.

she could be nervous about the new puppy, but she might have something in her like worms. Talk to your mom to see what the vet said, he will know the answer.
