Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

1) When did the blood develop in his stool?
2) What food was being fed before the critical care was being given?
3) Any risk of eating something he should not have consumed?
4) Have any diagnostics been performed such as a fecal examination or x-rays of the abdomen?
5) Is he producing stool normally?
