Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Layla has blood coming from the rectum and there are bite marks on the rear legs. I am sorry to hear about what is happening. Are you able to send pictures of the bite wounds so I can assess if these require immediate treatment? How is her overall attitude, is she appearing lethargic or still her normal bright and alert self?

She seems like her normal self but you can tell she's hurting.

It sounds like she could definitely use some pain management. The blood from the rectum has me concerned. If this is from trauma due to the bite wound then that would make sense based on her injuries. It would not necessarily be a cause for emergency as long as she is not actively bleeding. If there is active bleeding from the rectum then that is an issue of an emergency. The bite wounds will likely require to be throughout irrigated, cleaned, and antibiotics are likely necessary. Pain management with an anti-inflammatory +/- an opioid can be given as well. Are you able to see a veterinarian tonight or first thing tomorrow?

Thank you for the picture. There is generalized redness on the skin and there are two superficial excoriations on the skin, but I do not see punctures that extend through the skin. If that is the worst of it then it would not likely require extensive treatment beyond a topical antibiotic like Neosporin and basic cleaning with an antiseptic solution. It would not explain the severe pain she is feeling though. I am assuming there are more wounds or she is painful in some other part of the body such as the spine or hips.

My recommendation would be to monitor her mental status and it should remain bright and alert (i.e. not lethargic). Keep her quiet and resting for tonight and have her examined in the morning. Aspirin can be given for pain relief, but it might get in the way of a different pain medication approach that your veterinarian would want to use tomorrow. However, if she is very painful tonight then you could definitely give aspirin.
