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.
