Hi there,

Thanks for your question regarding your girl Mayzie who has some blood in her stool. It is unlikely this is related to the flea treatment. Has she had any different food or treats over the last couple of days? Could she have ingested some of the bath liquid you used to wash the dogs? Are the stools normal with blood around them? Or are they liquid with blood?

I will wait to hear from you.

Kind Regards,

Dr E
