This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He is 6 years old, so it's not a first time thing. He had had a very touchy stomach ever since we've had him & has been in grain free food since he was 1 year old. Our vet's office had an emergency & they were Kate getting to us - as a result, he was offeredd 2 treats while in the waiting room & 2 more while we were in the treatment room. I never gave it aNY thought, but I'm fairly sure the treats weren't grain free. He has had stomach distress since Wednesday, with a slightly bloody discharge in his stool off & on. Friday night, I was up at 5AM to take him out, where he had semi-diarrhea. Today, I have gone to a cooked chicken/rice feeding for blandness & am hoping to avoid a visit to the emergency vet until our vet opens tomorrow. Is there anything we can give him to help relieve any pain - he stretches up & down periodically & I'm pretty sure he's uncomfortable.JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: Only that he has expressed discomfort when he's had items (food/treats) that aren't gluten/grain free. Other than that, he is very healthy. How much is the fee?

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.
