Customer Question

My dog is having rectal bleeding. We were on a walk when I noticed it. I would estimate about a half to 1 teaspoon (with his defecation). He is not bleeding now. My husband said he had a bone last night (possible cause?). He does not seem to be in any pain, and, in fact, was happy on the walk and is running around now.
Does this need an emergency pet clinic visit tonight or can we just keep an eye on him?
