What could be causing my dog to have urinating difficulty?

He had his prostate checked and it was normal size. Vet isn't sure. Can someone who experienced this same problem with their dog please let me know? He is a cross between a pit bull/american <a href="https://dogencyclopedia.net/articles/entry/8-bulldog/?s=cc92f0526ecee1c657fda156f9c45ee5f01a0414">bulldog</a> and is 10 years old. Thanks

    • If you're not content with what your current vet told you, you need to get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion from a different vet; it isn't healthy for your dog to e having these issues. He's probably in pain, too.

    • my top 2 differentials would be bladder stones or bladder cancer. There are others such as other tumors pressing in that area, nerve damage ect... but the first 2 are the most common. Have radiographs been done (however not all stones will show up on rads, some are radiolucent) and has the entire tract been radiographed (don't forget the entire urethra). Bladder tumors might be hard to see on radiographs, so ultrasound is better. Not all vets have ultrasound, you could ask for referral to a specialist. Sometimes tumor cells can be seen in urinalysis samples. Your dog definitely needs to be seen by another vet and fast. If this progresses to complete urinary obstruction then you are faced with a life-threatening emergency. have it diagnosed now before it progresses to that point.
