Hello, thank you for using Just Answer, The fresh blood on dog's feces is the indication of the large bowel problem either due to constipation or a condition called colitis which is inflamation of the large bowel.We usually see blood and mucus together on feces in case of serioıs colitis problems.Colitis can be caused by a foreign objects, bones ,usulally chicken bones that the dog chews or eats.Fresh Blood means that the mucosal integrity of the large bowel is broken.This may cause a serious infection by the enterance of the harmful bacteria into his system which is located in his large bowel.An antibiotic called Metronidazole against the anaerobic bacteria, easy to digest food ( boiled rice, boneless white chicken and yogurt ) , prebiotics are usually necessary to treat cases like this.But first diagnosis should be made by your veterinarian.I hope this helps.Thank you.
