Hi. I'm Dr. Lee and will do my best to help.

Can you tell me a couple things?

1. How old is he and how much does he weight?
2. When did he eat the dates and how many did he eat?
3. How long has the bloody diarrhea been going on?
4. Any vomiting?

<p>Hi. Thanks for the updated info. </p><p> </p><p>Since the only signs we have is diarrhea with blood, it should be ok. Whenever a dog ingests something that they're not supposed to, it can potentially cause diarrhea by altering the normal flora in the intestines. And I suspect that is what Louie is going through. The best way is to goto your veterinarian and have the stool check, and then most likely will get some antibiotics. However if that is not possible at this time, you can try to get some Pepto-Bismol 262 mg tablets. Give 1-2 tablets every 12 hours for 2 days and see if that helps. Also, you can try to make some home-made chicken and rice, no salt, no pepper, no spices. 3 parts rice, 1 part meat. Use this as his only diet for the next 3-5 days. If you follow this, you might not see bowel movement for the next 2-3 days and it can be normal.</p><p> </p><p>Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks.</p>
