Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- I am confused, your caregiver was the one that saw the blood? Was it in the stool?

2- Does she have diarrhea?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think it was in the stool. No diarrhea. Right now she is sitting on the sofa on a blanket and there are blood stains like she is having a period!

1- Can you look closely around her anal sphincter and the surrounding skin for any swelling, cuts, etc. that may be bleeding?
