I have attached an image of the stool. That definitely appears to be more than just a few drops of blood.

Thank you for my morning photo! If she hasn't been wormed recently, it would be prudent to do so with a wormer containing either fenbendazole (Panacur, e.g.) for three consecutive days or pyrantel pamoate now and again in two weeks. There are too many differential diagnoses for hematochezia (blood in the stool) to list in this venue but intestinal parasites should be ruled out first. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
