Customer Question
Hello there. I have...

Hello there. I have a pit bull about a year old, black.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

He starting to poop diarrhea yesterday, through out the day i started to see traces f blood. When I️ just took him out he pooped diarrhea but after that he tried to poop and nothing but blood.

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

But the blood seems sticky too. Like chunks almost. His name is Pac.

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

He has had this problem before, more than likely from something off the ground, when he was younger and the problem went away. But this time seems worse, he won’t eat.

Poor Pac! I'm sorry he's having some diarrhea. Lots of things can cause that, but in a young healthy animal a virus or eating something he's not supposed to is the most common. When they cat colitis (inflammation of the end of the gut), they strain to go with only little production that can have blood or mucous. I'd recommend some bland diet (boiled chicken/hamburger and rice) for a few days. If it's not improving he may need some medicine at the vet, but bland diet usually works.
