Customer Question

My dog is pooping nothing but blood.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Tango. A year old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tango?
Customer: She was puking all night last night, woke up this morning and there was blood in her puke. Took her to the local vet and they gave her an anti vomit medicine. Then 8 hours later she started pooping nothing but blood. Every 5-10 minutes
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Tango eat anything unusual?
Customer: She chewed my sandal last night but it didn't seem like anything was missing.

Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with Tango. With what you're describing with him and his age, a parvo virus infection is at the top of the rule out list. Has he been vaccinated by you with your vet for parvo as a series of vaccines as a puppy?
