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

How much blood are you seeing (spoonful, cupful, etc)?

Is it dripping out or coming out with feces? Any diarrhea?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
