Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry that , Due to my location, I am unable to make phone calls but I would like to try to help....

It appears that Princess has a mild digestive disturbance caused possibly by something that she may have ingested r some form of stress. The blood you see is most likely due to the loose stool irritating the very sensitive rectal mucosa causing small blood vessels to break and bleed. Once this disturbance is resolved, this will resolve. The treatment for this is as follows:

Fast Princess for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.
Give her Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. That can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy.
Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes
After the fast, feed rice and boiled chicken (2/1)

If the vomiting has resolved, then wean your sweet Princess back onto regular food. If the vomiting persists especially during the fast, take her to your vet for an exam and lab work to determine the cause for this. This is extremely important since this can cause dehydration or other more serious concerns. I worry that, due to her age, Princess could be suffering from a Pancreatitis or infectious disease.

Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, ***** *****

Yes, Zantac can be used at a dose of 1 mg per pound every 8 hrs. I hope sweet Princess feels better soon!
