Hi there! Glad to hear that Zeus is eating and drinking at this time! Do you feel that he's eating well? Is the blood in the stool just a little? Can you take a picture of it and post it?
That is ok on the picture. Do you feel it was just little streaks of blood or flecks int he stool? Or was the stool looking like strawberry jam?
Ok. It isn't too surprising that after a bout of upper GI distress, that they will have some loose stools with the possibility of a little blood in it. This sounds like it could be colitis - inflammation of the colon. As long as the vomiting isn't coming back, he's eating and drinking and not being stressed - a lot of times, time is needed to let the colon get back to its normal state. Bland foods like 1/3 boiled chicken mixed with 2/3 boiled white rice can be a nice easy diet to let the intestinal tract rest.
