Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sophie. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help. Stress can cause diarrhea and stomach upset. It could also be an infection, something she ate, parasites, or internal disease ( pancreatitis, liver and kidney disease). Blood in the diarrhea indicates colitis, that the lining of the colon is irritated, and bleeds when stool is passed. Is she eating, and drinking?
