I noticed Bailey had some blood on the tip of his little man gland this morning. When he went pee it went away. There was no blood on the pee pad, though. I wondered if it was too much protein or something. I give him cottage cheese about every other day. Then I remembered there was some rubbing alcohol on the floor that he licked yesterday but I didn't think he swallowed. Maybe a little got inside of him. I'll just watch him. Has anyone else ever had this problem? He's as energetic as ever.

We had that same experience with a male malt we took care of....if its the same thing, dont worry about it.
I'll let someone else explain, or I'll PM you
If no blood is in the urine, than lets just say it might be a manly thing....

Hope its not something else serious though...

Blood in the urine is not caused by eating too much protein and if you ever do see blood in the urine, he should be checked out right away because it could be one of several things that will need attention, such as a urinary tract infection.

I wonder if you actually saw blood or if, perhaps, it was the tip of his penis that you saw?

I was also thinking the very same thing :D I guess there were a few of us with the same idea

Females are more prone to uti's than males because of their anatomy. Bladder stones and crystals can also cause uti's.

Call your vet and see if you can bring a sample in today to be tested for infection. It's fast, easy and inexpensive.

Do Maltese get urinary tract infections quite easily?

I was just wondering if maybe it was not blood that you saw, some people have gotten worried about that before and it was really just the red tip of the penis. It can look like blood if you look at it quickly.

Bailey's urinalysis was normal. The doctor was surprised how good the whole thing looked. Don't know what the blood was, maybe he had a sore there or something. Thanks for your replies. B.

That is great news,
I am so pleased there is nothing bad happening with Bailey and perhaps you are right he may just have had a little scratch or something there that has healed up.
