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 wee one’s 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 is he passing with her stool? A spoonful, more, less?
Does he strain to pass that diarrhea?
Has he been scooting his bottom on the ground?
Any lumps, sores, or redness around his rectum?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Anything missing that Charlie may have chewed (ie bones, socks, rocks, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
When was he last wormed? Last vaccinated?
