I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. The "pink jelly-like" substance is bloody mucus which identifies a colitis. His vomiting, scratching, and biting at his rectal area are symptoms suggestive of a hypersensitivity reaction to envenomation, vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and food (particularly because his gastrointestinal tract is involved). May I have an update on your Norfolk, please?
