My 8-year-old Italian greyhound has been having some GI

Hi, my 8-year-old Italian greyhound has been having some GI distress the last 18 hours or so. He ate yesterday morning but then had a noisy stomach at dinner time and has refused food. Potty habits normal until earlier today when he had some bloody diarrhea (bright red blood). Later he had another BM but this was dark, digested blood - exactly similar to a few months ago when he had dental surgery and of course had swallowed a lot of blood. This was maybe an hour ago.Since then he's gone out for a pee and has shown interest in food, but did not want any canned food - just a little bit of plain white rice. He ate that and is sleeping now and appears comfortable.My question is - given this information, may I keep an eye on him and call the vet in the morning? We do have an emergency vet we can use but I prefer his own if it's safe to wait.

My 8 yr old basset hound is not eating, is very lethargic

My 8 yr old basset hound is not eating, is very lethargic and moves from her orthopedic bed to "hide" somewhere like under the dinner table or behind my chair. She is drinking fluids and is urinating. She also starts breathing very quickly for a period of time and then goes back to normal.

I have a female 7-year old cocker spaniel and my dog has a

Hi. I have a female 7-year old cocker spaniel and my dog has a dropped jaw, is drooling, gagging. She is listless and has trouble eating and drinking. She seems to urinate and have bowel movements normally. She drags her back legs sometimes but today seems OK in that department. The vet prescribed anti-inflammatory medication which seems to have helped with the legs but not the jaw or drooling. We have been to the vet many times now, all blood tests and 2 tick panel tests have come back negative. She had her rabies vaccination last year and is up-to-date on all her other vaccinations. What should we do now?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your spaniel. What is the spaniel's name?Customer: CharliJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Charli?Customer: She was healthy until two weeks ago. She is allergic to rice chaff BUT she only encounters that once a year.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
