I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Poppy. Is the bleeding coming with the diarrhea, or somewhere else?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Diarrhea with blood is a sign of colitis, inflammation of the lining of her colon. Many things cause colitis. Some are serious and some are not.

If she is eating, not vomiting, not dehydrated, then feeding a bland diet might be all she needs. It might help to give her some Pepto Bismal or Immodium; how much does she weigh?

If she is not eating, if she is vomiting, if her gums look pale rather than pink, then this may be more serious.

It's coming with the diarrhea she is eating fine and not vomitting and she is drinking ok as well . Do I just feed her pasta n chicken with dry food . If she is pregnant will her pups b ok she got mated 3 weeks ago this Monday coming
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

I would feed pasta and boiled chicken, and hold off on dry food until the diarrhea slows down.

It depends on what is causing her diarrhea, if it affects her pregnancy. If you are worried about her, I would have her checked out by your veterinarian if this does not stop in a day or so.

You keep asking me questions until you have all the information you need, no other charges. When you have all your questions answered, then you rate my answer (you should see smiley faces or stars). Even after rating, you can ask questions or send me updates by going to My Questions on the website.

If you have questions about another problem, or another pet, the website does ask you start a new question, with a new deposit.
