Customer Question
Hi. I just noticed...

Hi. I just noticed that my 14 week old dog has mucus and blood in her stool. I took her for an exam on the 7th, and she had some vaccinations and I gave a fecal sample. The fecal sample that I gave was clean, but I still occasionally see some dead tapes. She was dewormed before we adopted her, and we follow up in three weeks. I just wanted to know if this is something I should be concerned about.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No. Just seeing blood made me worry.

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately. If you have not responded back in 10 minutes, it may be a longer before I can get back to you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

How much blood is in the stool?

Any vomiting or lack of appetite?

How many sets of vaccines did she have?

Do you know the name of the product she was dewormed with?
