My 6 week old puppy is pooping bloody stool for the past

My 6 week old puppy is pooping bloody stool for the past week. I took him to the vet on the 1st day it was noticed. Vet says that the stool sample doesn't have any blood in it and he is healthy. I am growing concerned because the blood I see when cleaning up his poop is evident. Our puppy did have hookworms and heart worms when we first got him and the vet gave him meds. I am not sure what is wrong with our puppy. Any advice?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: Yes he was on Panacur 100mg at 4.5 weeks old and he took his last 4 day dose of Pyrantel Pam oates 50mg this afternoon.

My Great Pyrenees is in a ton of pain when eliminating. I am

Hello! My name is ***** ***** my Great Pyrenees is in a ton of pain when eliminating. I am desperate! We've been to so many vets in the area but none have been able to help. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Yes. We have had ultrasounds and x-rays done, but nothing shows anything that would cause this. Initially, we thought it was his anal glands, so our vet gave us ciproflaxacin and it helped. Every time we take him to have his anal glands expressed, they say that they didn't even need to be expressed... We've also done laser therapy, tried arthritis medication (he has "a touch" of arthritis), probiotics, and their antibiotics. He avoids pooping and when he does, is in a lot of pain and spins around. His anus is sensitive to the touch and he has been seeming to want to itch it a lot lately, which is unusual.
