She seems okay now,but still concerned by all the poopy jelly like blood spots all over the floor,she only weighs 6 to 7 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

I'm sorry for my delay as some cases at work quickly pulled me away. That is great that she's looking normal and that she's eating / drinking well! In a situation like this, what typically pushes a case to needing veterinary care is if she's not eating / not drinking / vomiting. The change of food could have temporarily thrown off her intestinal tract and caused the stools to be like this. IF this is the case, then time and her adjusting to the new food most likely are the things needed. IF she starts to vomit or stops eating / drinking, then the situation could be more involved in one called hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. These cases do need veterinary care to make sure they stay up on their hydration. If she is otherwise doing great, then time may be the big thing here. If she isn't spayed, then the question as to if this material is from her vaginal area is something I bring up.

How is everything going with Susie at this time? I'm curious to hear if she's back to normal!
