Customer Question

My puppy turned one last week. He eats everything! He is having some diarrhea with blood in it. He has had it 4 times in the last 4 hours not all had blood but the last two did. Not a lot of blood but mixed in. He is acting normal not showing any signs of pain and his nose is still cold and wet. My vet opens at 8 am in 4hours from now. Should I wait or try to take him somewhere sooner? He just feel asleep and is snoring, so I know he is in deep sleep.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How much blood are you seeing? A spoonful, more, or less? Any black stool?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

If you press on his belly,does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants,chemicals, etc)?
