Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with Eskie. How long has he had these symptoms? Is there any vomiting?
With the blood and mucus in the stool, I recommend trying to encourage him to eat cooked chicken and white rice. I also recommend you try and get Fortiflora, which is an over the counter canine probiotic. It sometimes helps encourage dogs to eat, and it can help with the blood and mucus in the poop.
The muscle loss and lethargy in addition to the decreased appetite is a concern for something more serious going on. Is there any way you can get him in to a vet?
Please let me know any additional information or questions you have. And please make sure to rate me when you're satisfied with the service you've received as this is the only way I am compensated for my time. Thanks!
