he's eating an bland diet of boiled chicken and brown rice, then I started him on the prescribed diet of Hill's i/d digestive care on yesterday.

Thank you. Okay, I think he needs to recheck at the vet today. The blood (maroon color) and loose stool indicate the inflammation in the intestines is severe to the point of bleeding.

Most likely he needs a fecal test to see if he has abnormal bacteria as well as an antibiotic for the gastrointestinal tract.

He may need some subcutaneous, or intravenous, fluid therapy because with bloody diarrhea they dehydrate quickly.

Do not feed him anything until he sees the vet.

Did all of that make sense to you? Do you have any other questions I may assist you with?
