Hello. I am sorry to hear that Scooter has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. I just have a few questions.

Is there blood in his stool, is it just blood coming from his anus or is there a wound/hole on one side of anal opening where the blood is coming from.

Any recent change in diet including foods or treats?

Any chance he got in to anything toxic including medications and or rat poison?

Does he go outside?

Is he eating and drinking normally?
