I dont know what is wrong

Ok. I have a 5 year old female pug who cant seem to hold her pee. It has a white crystalized look to it and sometimes spots of blood. We have been saving back to get her into a vet (times are tough for us right now) and all the sudden she is vomiting alot. I dont know what to do

You're going to have to beg or borrow for some extra cash, because that pup needs to go to the vet, like yesterday. Sorry, but there's not going to be an easy way out of this. She's probably got a wicked and painful urinary tract infection, and the vomitting is NOT good. Make an appointment as quickly as you can.

I agree with Bendyfoot. Maybe your vet can work out a monthly plan with you.

I would be in my car and heading out right now.

Good luck.

I would recommend that is times are tough, I would recommend that you take the money now on diagnostics (radiographs, blood testing, urinalysis and possibly urine culture) in order to help prevent more costs in the future. These tests can tell you if there are stones, predilection to crystals, diabetes, mellitus, etc..

Money invested in your pet's health now can save HUGE costs if the health condition takes a turn later.

Good luck.
