The blood is okay...it can be attributed to the ham bone and some gi upset...but if there is no vomiting...and abdomenal cramping...things will be fine.
If this continues beyond 3 bowel movements...take him in.
Thank you Dr.Vamvakis for you reponse to my concern regarding my Great Dane. I did take him to the animal hospital that night.
I think he may bre fine, however he is not drinking his usual amt. of water. I made him some rice, w/ boiled chicXXXXX XXXXXvers.I added a good amt of water to this.
They put him on a strong antibiotic. Last stool had only a sm.amt of blood. Will the antibiotics have an effect on his fluid consumption ? He is on 500mg of Metronidazole every 12 hrs.I appreciate your reply so much. Never used this site before. I will not get so hasty to transport him next time if the condition permits. I was hit by a semi, 45mph, then head on to into a bldg. Not an easy transport for me, especially late @night.
Thank you Soooo Much!
