Blood tinged mucous from where?
OK, thanks. Is she otherwise acting normally? Eating, drinking, no vomiting, etc?
OK, thanks for the information.
I would withhold food for 8 hours or so. If no vomiting during that time, I would feed her small, frequent meals of a bland diet for the next 2-3 days. Bland diet means boiled skinless chicken and rice, plain potatoes or pasta, cottage cheese, etc. If she keeps that down and the diarrhea clears up, then slowly transition her back to her normal food over several days.
If the vomiting does not stop after withholding food, she will not eat, or the blood in the diarrhea worsens, I would have her evaluated by a veterinarian to rule out more sinister diseases like hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, gastrointestinal blockage, pancreatic disease, tumor, etc.
Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Sorry to hear about the HGE, but glad we could get her where she needed to be for the aggressive care that is needed to treat the disease. Hope she does well!!
