    I never experienced that when Hank was a pup but I can tell you if I did I would have called my vet. It could very well be nothing at all but it could very well be something serious that might not be noticeable by you. At least make a phone call, at least thats free. keep us posted

    Could be a lot of things. Parasites (worms) can also cause blood in the stool. I'd have her vet checked.

    Hi

    My labrador SASKA is 7 months old and a couple of weeks ago she had blood
    in her stools and the runs, it turned out to be gastro-enteritis which is very serious fatal you really should check with a vet.
    She was given antibiotics. And is ok now.

    Good Luck

    You should take her to the vet to make sure. If you are seeing blood on the stool it is likely external - is she straining to go poop. Sky was diagnosed with Colitus, mild case fortunately, so I have her on a very high fiber diet - but she used to strain every time she had a stool and it would cause bleeding. But you really need to discuss it with your vet as it could be many things.
