Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian and I am hoping to help you with your Husky. I just need a little more information. Can you tell where the bleeding is coming from? Any history of this happening before? Any history of anal gland problems?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
he barley started this morning
Expert:  Dr. Alleyne replied 2 years ago.

Can you tell if it is coming from inside the rectum or around the area of the rectum? Can you see any open wounds or any skin masses?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
its coming from inside the rectum and he is only three months old
Expert:  Dr. Alleyne replied 2 years ago.

Is he up to date on his vaccines? How is his appetite? Any vomiting? With his age and the blood coming from the rectum I would first be very concerned about a disease called parvo. This is a virus that attacks the lining of the intestines causing bleeding and dehydration. This can be diagnosed by having a veterinarian test for the virus in his feces. If it is parvo then he would likely need to be hospitalized and given IV medications to help with the blood and to prevent him from becoming too dehydrated. Other causes also include intestinal parasites such as hook worms, also eating something that did not agree with him such table food could cause him to have intestinal upset as well.

are you suggesting we take him to the vet
Expert:  Dr. Alleyne replied 2 years ago.

Yes I would take him to the veterinarian as soon as possible so he can be tested and treated quickly. If he continues to bleed from the rectum, he can become dehydrated very quickly and end up becoming anemic. As soon as you can find a diagnosis, he can receive the appropriate treatment to help the bleeding stop.
