Our 8 year old bulldog developed diarrhea with bright red

Customer Question

Our 8 year old bulldog developed diarrhea with bright red blood today. He has had 4 episodes over the last 12 hours. He had a check up at the vet 2 days ago and received a rabies, Leptospirosis, and DAPP shots. Should we find an emergency vet tonight?

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 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 have you seen? A spoonful, more, or less? Or was it all hemorrhagic?

What color is Charlie's gums?

Any belly pain?

Any chance he has eaten something harmful?
