My dog had s yearly dental cleaning and was given anethesia.

my dog had his yearly dental cleaning and was given anethesia. the vet said he threw up after but wasn't concerned. he had the normal symptoms of anethesia and ate and drank fine. he has diherra and some liquid/gel at the end of him going. last night some of the liquid/gel looked red/orange so I wasn't sure if it was blood. at that time the bet was closed and figured if he continued the next day I would take him to see the dr. he still had diherra with the liquid/gel, but it was more yellowish. now he just had a bowel movement and the stool is starting to form but yet after that he squated and more liquid/gel came out and this time is was blood. in the soft formed stool there was a speck of blood. is this normal after dental cleaning and the anesthesia? is something else going on possibly?

I have a 10-week old corgi puppy who I have had days. Today

Hi,I have a 10-week old corgi puppy who I have had for 9 days. Today was the second time he has had loose, bloody stools. Last time I took him in, they said it wasn't anything to worry about and told us to not give him rawhides to chew on. He hasn't had anything new in his diet since we brought him home. What could cause bloody stool? Is he really okay? Are we being overly cautious?Jess

I had a good expeirence the first time I used you so I would

I had a good expeirence the first time I used you so I would like your advice again: I am going to be getting a puppy from someone who is not a breeder, it was an accidental. The breed of the dog is a queensland, and what age can she be separated from the mother? Currently she is 4 weeks old I know it should be somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks old.I give my dogs all their booster shots but can you tell me what schedule and time frame for the parvo and booster shots for the puppy as well as wormer I currently use Pancur wormer on my older queensland.Thank YouMary Ferreira

I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than

Hi. I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than normal. He is a 3 year old yellow lab mix and has healthy teeth. He has not been over heated at all - I live in northern Michigan and the temp has been in the 60's and 70's over the last week. The gum just above his teeth are his normal pink, but they are quite dark starting about 1/2 inch above that. He shows no sign of illness and is pooping and peeing normally. Tghis happened overnight.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Bullet. He was found as a stray on a military rifle range when he was 9 months old. The only new thing is that he has a big bone that he has been chewing on - it has not splintered - it is too big and tough for that. This is not the first time he has had a bone like this and he has not been chewing it more than usualJA: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bullet?Customer: just the change in gum color. what can cause that?JA: OK. Got it.

While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
