What a sad, sad situation. I am going to keep my opinion to myself here.
How is she doing?

I know it sucks to watch the dog be in pain but your boyfriend cannot risk his job over the dog. Your baby and ya'lls well being HAS to come first. Dogs, while great creatures, aren't above human life in most instances. So it's going to have to be either the dog goes, ya'll find some other source of money (a family member or something, which you've already said wouldn't do it), or ya'll risk your baby being born into a very hard situation. It's a game of evils and there's no real way to win.

All you can do is either see if the vet will be very generous in working something out or get rid of the dog. You can't risk you and your baby on a dog. It's not logical.


Anyhow, is the blood bright red or a darkish red in color? That can help in determining where it's coming from as well (intestinal bleeding vs bladder bleeding).
This is pretty much my view on the situation. I cant put someone else's dog before my own child. As cruel and evil as that may sound to other members, thats just how I feel being 8 months pregnant with a baby. Its certainly A lose lose situation. All I can do is suggest ideas to my mother about her dog that needs to see a vet ASAP.

My mom would never put down her dog, so I know that suggestion is out the window. Whatever it is that is wrong with her dog, I know its going to be much worse by next wednesday. My mom is lucky that Brandon gets paid again before she does and is willing to give her money, otherwise she would have to wait until the 3rd of next month to get her dog seen.

She still doesnt look like she is in any pain when she urinates, but there still is blood in her pee. She squats to pee a bunch of times and nothing comes out, which with my own experience with UTIs tells me that she does have a bladder infection.

I know. Whether she even makes it to next wednesday is questionable.

Sorry this again may not be popular but do you not have a humane society? If I knew someone was neglecting a dog like this, whoever it was, I would report them at least that way the dog may get some relief and possibly a decent home to go to after treatment.

Considering the long list of why the dog doesn't go to the vet............one could also assume that the dog is also not fixed. But I will ask again......
IS THIS DOG SPAYED??
