Customer Question

My 3yr old schnauzer mix just came in from back yard and had a little blood dripping from her rectum. I wiped it off and she didn't seem to be sore or sensitive. Should I take her to the vet?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How much blood was it? Spoonful, more or less?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Do you think she was outside passing stool just now? Any sign of what she passed? Diarrhea or hard feces?

Any access to toxins, bones, dog unfriendly plants or medications?

How is she otherwise?
