Two weeks ago Reggie (, 11y/o, 21lbs) had dental surgery and

Two weeks ago Reggie (***** *****, 11y/o, 21lbs) had dental surgery and for follow-up was prescribed Antirobe 159mg and Metacam-which he has taken before. He wasn't eating so the vet said to stop the Antirobe, which he had taken for 6 days. Since then, his appetite got better but then he started to avoid food again for the past 2 days. Yesterday he started having urgent loose stools, doing lots of "butt-spins," and panting. When I let him out at 11am he had stool that was the conlsistency of chocolate pudding with a red tinge, which has frightened me... Very mucousy...Could this be related to the Antirobe?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: ReggieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Reggie?Customer: Anxiety might be a factor...we've been moving over the past three weeks. Also, he had a dog flu injection on the 29th and we are scheduled for the follow up tomorrow afternoon...
