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

Is it pure blood or blood stained fluid or pus?

Is it coming from a wound they opened or did they put in a rubber drain?

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

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Can you take a photo of this discharge to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web link here for me to have a peek.
