Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licesned veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I apologize for the delay in our response, but I suspect that the experts may be reluctant to try to help since it really sounds like we're going to have to tell you something you don't want to hear - it might be that the only way to help her at this point is to take her to a vet. Where is she bleeding from?
Is she having normal stool or is she having bloody diarrhea from her bottom? How long has this been going on?
OK I understand that her last stool was a few days ago. What I'm trying to ascertain is whether or not she's got blood coming from her rectum or the blood is actually in the stool. Please have patience - when I can't speak with you in person sometimes you've got to allow me to ask some questions so that I can really understand what is happening.
Also - you say she hasn't eaten since last weekend - do you mean that she hasn't eaten a single thing in an entire week? How about drinking?
As I said - I was still gathering information in order to better assist you. When we can't examine the pet in person we have to discuss the matter in greater detail. Since I can't see her myself, I need a good description of what's happening, otherwise I have no idea. Your vet is going to ask you all of those same questions once you get her there. I'm glad to hear that you're able to take her in for an exam, though, because that is really what she needs.
