My 8 year old girl bull dog is peeing and pooping blood?
Welcome! I would be happy to assist you. I am a 2003 graduate from UC Davis and a Medical Director of a veterinarian practice.

Hello,
You need to immediately get Laney into a vet. when blood is present in both urine and feces, that could suggest a bleeding disorder.

Now, blood in urine alone could still be observed with bladder stones, urinary tract infections, vaginitis.

Blood in the feces suggests colitis.

Colitis in Dogs

But, when present in both, you could have any combination of both problems, as well as, the risk for a urinary tract infection.

Definitely, since we know there is no option to treat at home, this is well worth a vet visit today!

It is possible the vet may also suggest a blood test just to make sure clotting blood times are normal, a urine test to rule-out a urinary tract infection, and then some medication to treat each problem.

Hope that info helps
Dr. Andy
