Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today. Is he passing pure blood? Or diarrhea with blood mixed in or after?Did his vet do any stool tests? Or just bloods?Is Jazz up to date on his vaccines?Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
