He is dripping frank, bright red blood?
Or, does it look like blood-tinged diarrhea that is dripping from his anus?

bright blood but not alot
Expert:  Dr. K replied 9 years ago.
If it is only a few drips, then just take a towel and press it to his anus firmly for a few minutes. This should stop the bleeding. If the bleeding continues after this, then you should bring him into the emergency clinic tonight, as he may be having some kind of blood-clotting disorder.
As long as the bleeding stops tonight, just take him into the vet in the morning so that his anus can be evaluated for anything abnormal.
I hope that this information is of help to you. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
