Customer Question
My dog is a...

My dog is a 3 year old neutered chihuahua male. In very good health except that today, I noticed blood in his stool. I wiped his little rear and there was also red blood. He seems fine, he has eaten, plays, etc. Up to this point, his bowel movements have been regular, up to 3 times daily, firm. I did change the flavor of his food from Duck to Salmon, same brand - Petcurean Go Sensitivity & Shine Limited ingredients. I did notice a mild swelling next to the anus and when I lightly pressed it, he seemed to feel discomfort.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Figgy's Naughty Elf - Nicknamed TY.

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

He has been very healthy. When we first brought him home, he was a bit anxious and had a little bit of blood in his urine. The vet prescribed Clavamox and Canna Gurt for Anxiety (Hemp) and he's been fine ever since. He eats well, drinks plenty of water.
