My Scotty has had bright red poops mixed with mucous for several months at least. The vet has checked her bowel movements and found nothing. He gave her meds just to be sure which decreased it for a couple of days but it returned. It is not every movement and seems to come in bouts. Her stool is only loose when she has it. Other wise it is fine. I think it is perhaps the sticks she eats. We try to keep the yard clean and take them away when she has them but she seems to always find them. We don't leave them out often unsupervised but it does happen. Do you think there is more than the sticks going on? Her gums are Are pinkish red with black but that is due to gingivitis per the vet. She is otherwise healthy per the vet. She is 7 and had a very severe case of cocidilla as a pup. Took about 7 rounds of meds to get rid of it. I forgot to add that she has not had table scraps and no diet change. She obsessively licking her paws.
