Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog!!! There are a few different possibilities for what could be going on here. If you can look at your pup's hind end, it may give you more information. We can have infected anal sacs that can abscess and rupture, leading to drops of blood or liquid leaking from the hind end (often there will be a small hole visible next to the anus). We could also have some bleeding as a result of colitis (inflammation of the colon). We can also see blood in the stool with some parasites (whip worms), and if your dog has eaten a foreign object that could be scraping the inside of the colon. Because there are numerous possibilites, the safest thing is to take your dog in to the vet for an exam, they can check the anal sacs (requires a rectal examination with a finger), and also check for any foreign objects or bits of debris in the rectum/stool, and prescribe mediation if needed.
