I am sorry Leena has blood in her stool. Most of the time this is caused by worms.

You can use Excel, profender or Revolution monthly to worm her. Most of these are sold OTC.

She could have a touch of IBS:

If she has diarrhea add one tablespoon of rice cereal or boiled white rice to canned or baby food chicken with no onion powder.

Please let me know how she is doing .
