Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Remington is having bloody diarrhea. Otherwise, she is behaving normally. I am sorry to hear about this problem she is having. Can you please tell me if she appears to be straining to defecate or defecating in small amounts, or do the feces appear to be coming out all at once comfortably?
