Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

What pills was he given? More antibiotic?

What did his vet find on exam? Did they do any tests?

Did they note a cause for the bloody stools?

How long has he had these signs?

Was it pure blood he was passing or just a bit with diarrhea?

Is he up to date on vaccines?
