Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How much blood does he pass? A drop, more, less?

Any straining when he passes stool?

Any change in appetite?

Does he appear to be losing weight?

Does he have any discomfort if you press on his abdomen?
