My 10 yr old neutered dauchshund has runny, bloody stool and

My 10 yr old neutered dauchshund has runny, bloody stool and is throwing up a clear liquid. I have recently started crating him due to him peeing in the house while I am work. He doesnt like the crate and actually tore the side out of it yesterday. I bought an open metal cage for him last night and he stayed in it today, but the bars on one side are bent where he tried to chew out of it. He ate fine last night and I havent fed him yet today. Could his stool just be nerves or something much more serious? It just started this afternoon.
