My 13yr old dachsund started bleeding badly from his mouth

My 13yr old dachsund started bleeding badly from his mouth and then it just quit after about 30 mins. I just got back home with him because Dr didnt have a clue what could be wrong except maybe an abscessed tooth,there was one bad tooth with nerve exposed in the very back. My concern is , why the sudden onset of bleeding from his mouth, and then quit? Dr wasnt convinced about abscess and I'm not since dr never felt of abdomen or looked anywhere except in his mouth. What could it be besides that Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: the blood was bright red and dripping from inside his mouth like a faucet dripping,also had some clots come out and one was rather large. he seems to be real tired

should i switch vets? my dog wasn't able to walk or eat. i

should i switch vets? my dog wasn't able to walk or eat. i bought him in during normal hours(i thought he could wait). I was bought to an exam room and had to wait. Then they sent in someone who was a local student interested in being a vet. She tried to make my dog walk, and of course he wasn't able to. Then I had to wait again. The vet came in and immediately said rat poison (he is a great diagonistician). i saw a little bleeding on his gums- a little line- and thought it was due to eating a tough rawhide) I was in shock. The vet left and i was made to wait again. Finally he came back and suggested clotting studies to start with. I agreed, but the dog died (agonal breathing) when I was at home, awaiting the results. If I knew my wonderful rescue dog- named Gavin- would die, I would have brought him home to die. I just thought if he made it to the vet's alive, he would live. But it was obviously too late. I found rat poison in my yard months later while raking. I like the vet because he is close to my house, but did he do good in this situation? is vet med like er med where triage occurs? i am so upset.
