Customer Question
Male dachshund. 1 1/2...

Male dachshund. 1 1/2 years old. Has all shots. Pooping blood. Small amount of fecal matter in it. Drops of blood around too. No vomiting. Gums and feet pads cold to the touch

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dachshund eat anything unusual?

Not that we know of. He is in and out as he pleases

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dachshund's name?

Potsie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Potsie?

No. He is usually very healthy. Very active.

Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

This sounds like acute colitis.

Young dog so should be okay

I would stop feeding today

Water is okay

Start tomorrow with cooked hamburger and rice and add 1 tablespoon of canned pumpkin to each meal

NO antibiotics needed at this point

Offer lots of fresh water or NO SALT chicken broth to encourage drinking

Update me this evening

Make sense?

Paul
