Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** and I'll be happy to help you and your dog today.

Bloody discharge from the anus can indicate a generalized clotting problem, but usually this is from an inflamed colon lining and is what we call colitis. Colitis can be secondary to parasites, a bacterial infection, or just from eating unusual food.
