Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.

1) Does his stool have blood in it or is it just the anus that is bleeding?
2) Any vomiting?
3) Look at the inside of his ears and gums--do they appear yellow?
4) How old is he?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
He has diarrhea but now today he's still bleeding and can barely walk.

I am concerned that there is nothing that can be done at this point from home. It sounds like he's in critical condition. Are you able to drive to an ER facility or, perhaps, contact a mobile vet in the area to come to you?
