Blood in urine Causes and treatment

Blood In Urine

Blood in the urine is called hematuria. Blood may color the urine various shades of pink, red and brown. Streaks of blood may also appear in the urine. Visible blood in the urine is called gross hematuria. Blood in the urine may be present in such small quantities that it is not visible by the naked eye, but red blood cells in the urine can be seen with a microscope. This is called microscopic hematuria. The amount of blood in the urine does not always correlate with the seriousness of the disease, disorder or condition.

Blood in the urine is often caused by infection, inflammation, or injury of the urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra). In adults over 35, new-onset hematuria heralds a significant risk of undetected cancer.

In some cases, abnormal urine color can be mistaken for blood. In women, blood from the vagina can be mistaken for blood in the urine. In men, prostate problems can lead to blood in the semen, which can also be mistaken for blood in the urine. In addition, certain laxatives and foods can cause the urine to change color. If you can’t attribute the change in color to a medication or something in your diet, abnormal urine color should be evaluated in a medical setting. Blood in the urine can occur in all age groups and populations, and it may or may not occur with additional symptoms.

Lola (female mixed terrier/poodle etc, dog) has been having seizures. We contacted our vet and he wants to do complete blood panel, exam and urine analysis.
Also, been doing research on causes for seizures and natural treatment and it all points to central nervous system and brain trauma and nutrition. Just ordered Eicosaderm in liquid pump...3 Omega fish Oil to pump onto her food.

A kidney disease. It does cause fatigue, when it is acting up, and I've missed extended periods of work on two occasions.
I was diagnosed two years ago, it's genetic.
Yes, I'm on immuno-supressant drugs, prednisone and cyclosporine, along with blood pressure medication, lisinopril and atacand.
The disease scars the filters in my kidneys and causes me to lose way too much protein through my urine. I keep the stuff I"m supposed to pee out and pee out the stuff I'm supposed to keep in. Symptoms are edema (swelling, especially in the lower body) fatigue, high blood pressure, swollen lymph nodes

Years ago when it was one of several things my parents' mystery diagnosis cat was being tested for (it's far more common in dogs). There isn't a simple yes/no test for it; diagnosis is made based on symptoms, physical exam and a spectrum of blood/urine test results.
It's an endocrine disorder that results in too much cortisol in the bloodstream, which causes a variety of problems as it weakens the immune system. Treatment for the most-common form of the disease is an oral medication that is given for life. My understanding is this usually works well. I have no idea as to the cost, but I don't think it's crazy
