Blood coming from labs penis

We have an emergency vets appointment for 3, but just wondering if anyone has experience of this?

He’s a chocolate lab, 5, neutered. Noticed a few drops of blood in the garden this morning but couldn’t work out if it was from his bum or in his pee. Since then a big puddle and now lots of drips of blood wherever he goes. Most worrying is he is completely off food and hasn’t eaten anything today (really not like him).
Can’t see any obvious injury at all, although I’m aware it could be further inside. Could a urine infection present in this way?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I've had 4 dogs and one had a urine infection and when we first noticed she started with a little blood then would just wee blood it was everywhere. Although I can't say that's exactly what's wrong with your dog obviously, I hope your dog gets better soon and the vets go ok this afternoon xx

Thanks for your reply Kirsty, I’m confused as to whether he’s actually urinating blood though as the blood doesn’t seem diluted in anyway, it actually looks quite thick.

Bless him he’s actually looking rather sorry for himself sad

My greyhound had a really bad UTI once and had blood and pus coming out! I was horrified but he had a couple of courses of antibiotics and was fine. He was dripping blood as well.

Thanks @Greyhound22 that’s possibly what ddog has too but vet wasn’t sure and thinks it could also be his prostate. He had a really high temperature so had an antibiotic jag there and tablets home, we’ve to [try] and get a urine sample and dh to take him back tomorrow. He doesn’t seem right at all and his breathing is quite laboured but I think that’s because of his temp, the bleeding does seem less now though. The Vet says if he’s the same tomorrow they’ll want to keep him in to do more tests.

Oh bless him. Hopefully it can be sorted soon.

Word of warning - don't try to catch the wee in the tiny pot like I did 😑 get an old ice cream tub or something to catch it and decant. That was one of my life lessons.

Haha the visions you’ve given me there grin the vet actually gave dh a duck billed looking device to attach the pot onto so hopefully that will be easier (for him!)
Thank you again

We use an old long-handled soup ladle to collect urine samples - works a treat! I hope he's soon on the mend, poor lad.
