Default Blood in last few drops of dog's urine

My dog is a 2 year old miniature pinscher. Three days ago he had knee
surgery, and he came home yesterday. He has been eating normally and
has been drinking at least as much water as normal. He has not asked
to got outside to urinate more often than before his surgery, but since
he came home, the last few drops of his urine look red like they
contain blood. The urine before the last drops is a normal yellow
color. When I blot off the remaining liquid with a tissue, the urine
is slightly red, and sometimes there appears to be some coagulated
blood (bright red). I am taking him back to the vet tomorrow for an
examination. He is taking an antibiotic and pain medication because he
had surgery, but the vet said that these should not cause blood in the
urine and that the antibiotic should be preventing any UTI or bladder
infections. The vet also mentioned the possibility of the blood being
related to the breakdown of muscle tissue related to the surgery. The
dog does not seem to avoid urination due to pain. Any ideas?

.......No ideas here, but I'd be interested in what the vet says about it if
you care to post back. Hope it's nothing serious and your pup mends
quickly.

After doing a urinalysis, the vet thinks that my dog has a kidney
infection. It turns out that the post-surgery antibiotic the dog has
been on would be effective against UTI or bladder infection but
probably not kidney. The vet changed the antibiotic to one that would
better treat kidney infection, and hopefully this new antibiotic will
get rid of the infection. Interestingly, my dog has not needed to
urinate more often than usual, but this is evidently a normal symptom
of a kidney infection in dogs.
