Yesterday I posted because Harlee had diarrhea all day yesterday, since then I have made chicken and rice because her stomach was upset and given her a bit of pumpkin. She is more solid today but has a bit of bright red blood in her stool.
Would this be because her stomach is upset or it could be something else?
I would call the Vet also...... at our shelter when they see blood in the stool it usually means "worms".
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
If it was worms would she continue to have blood and diarrhea? Her stool is firming up and there is not any blood in her last movement.
Harlee has a very sensitive stomach, when i brought her home at 7 weeks we went through blood and diarrhea for almost 2 months (they ended up treating her with collitis). I am just not sure if this is her stomach acting up, I can't imagine its worms?
When Saska has this as a pup,(as she also has a very sensitive stomach) the vet thought it was Colitis, but it turned out to be gastroenteritis and she ended up on antibiotics, a friend of minds dog get colitis quite often, hope harlee feels better soon, Saska is sending him a kiss to get better soon. I personally would also go to the vet, I had to this morning as Saska was sick and it had traces of blood in it. I am a proper worry wort. My vet loves me all the money I spend there.
If she's been straining or passing lots of diarrhea, the bright red blood MAY be from irritated tissue near her anus. (As per my vet from when Soph had giardia. Vet said blood from further up the intestinal tract would be dark red or brownish.)
