Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

Anytime we see blood in the stool, it is wise to seek veterinary assistance as it does mean that there is a bleed in the intestines. If you are unsure what dog is having blood in their stool, you can take both to the ER this evening and they can perform a fecal analysis on both. This should tell them which dog has bloody diarrhea.

If a recent diet change occurred, this may be part of the reason that bloody diarrhea is being seen. Your vet can then place one or both dogs on medication to help firm the stool and clear the blood.
