Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys? Stressful changes to the environment?
Can you clarify what product was used? Almond bitterness?
Can you try the pic again? It didn't attach.
This does look like it's bloody. Are there any foods she might have received which could have pigmented the stool such as tomato or watermelon?
Thank you for the additional information. Can you also tell me what limb she's favoring? Is this full time or part? Is she on any medication at this time?
It sounds like she may be batting some arthritis and could benefit from a joint supplement like http://www.glycoflex.com products and also arthritis medication. Aspirin can be given in a pinch at home. You can find the dosing info here: http://www.veterinaryplace.com/dog-medicine/aspirin-for-dogs/ I would not start this until the GI upset is fully treated. As well, if you live in an area where ticks are common, your vet may wish to run a tick panel to be sure the symptoms are not due to a tick borne illness and may also recommend x-rays of the neck, back and hips.Is she having any vomiting or lack of appetite today?
