Customer Question

My dog has been biting her skin to the point of bleeding and also has has blood soaked feces on and off for the past month. I am scared for her. She is 10 years old.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?
Customer: No she's been pretty healthy up until this point. She will though have a couple of days of regular poop and then go right back to the bloody stool. She's becoming somewhat thin.
