My 8 year old female Basset Hound, Bailee's stomach gurgles

My 8 year old female Basset Hound, Bailee's stomach gurgles and she expresses a need to go out and eat grass. It also looks like her inner eyelid is a bit over her eyes (from the inside of her eye) and her whites are red. She seems a bit more tired than usual. She has had stomach issues for a long time...on and off. I have recently started feeding her Merrick's limited ingredients canned food, lamb and salmon. I used to have a Lab and fed her IAMS mini chunks. She passed away at 17, 2 months ago. She had no stomach issues. I still have some of that food left and have been giving Bailee some of that with her soft food and as a snack. I don't usually have snacks for my dogs or feed them table scraps. They have eaten raw carrots, potatoes, shredded sharp cheddar, some lettuce, and frozen blueberries. I have bought some frozen small bones from the freezer section at the pet store to help keep her teeth clean. I believe that is her diet. She is not one to eat a lot like the Lab. The Lab would get into the trash and steal food from the table if you didn't keep an eye on it. Bailee seems to be obedient to the point of waiting for me to tell her it is ok to eat whatever I place on the floor for her. Thank you for your insight into my Baby Basset's issue. PamJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if Bailee will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bailee?Customer: She is smaller than the average basset, but both of her parents were supposed to be full blooded. We were not furnished with papers. She does not have any ear issues and loves to hunt rabbit. When she was about a year or so she swallowed a baby rabbit whole...LIVE...it was a real unpleasant situation for me and my family, but Bailee was very happy. I called the vet and they said she would be fine and with a day or so she was up and running around like nothing happened. She did lay around for a few hours I suppose digesting the meal. I think that is all I have.

My 8 year old poodle mix has had four occasions of suddenly

My 8 year old poodle mix has had four occasions of suddenly not wanting to eat anything, with a loud stomach and discomfort that ended in diarrhea. The first two times were several days apart about two weeks ago. Last week it happened again but the end of the diarrhea was very bloody, not just streaks. Once it passed he was fine and went back to eating and playing as usual. A day or two later it happened again with even more blood. His stool starts as normal and the tale end is bloody diarrhea. The first three times were in the morning. The most recent time happened in the middle of the night last Saturday. Since he went back to normal after it passed I didn't take him to the emergency pet hospital. Now it's been almost three days of normal stool and eating, although his breath does smell a little odd. During the course of these episodes he was getting into the food I feed my large dogs. He liked it so much that I bought the small breed version. I mixed that with his food the day of or before the first bloody incident so I assumed there must be something in that brand of food that he can't handle, but I'm wondering if it could be something else.
