Hi guys, thanks for your kind wishes. We took him in to the vet that afternoon. Something is causing irritation in his colon which is causing it to bleed, but we don't know what it is yet. We've been keeping him hydrated and feeding him small amounts of plain, boiled rice and chicken every 6 hours or so. The vet also gave us some antibiotics - Metronidazole - to give him twice a day. I'm still waiting for him to poop so I can get a stool sample, but it's taking a while, I guess because of the reduction of food. At least this means the diarrhea/bleeding stopped?
I'm going to be taking him back to the vet tomorrow, hopefully I'll be able to get a stool sample by then. And then we'll be able to know if its just something he ate or if its bacteria or whatever.
Cas is doing fine currently. He's just a bit hungry right now, as evident with his big puppy eyes whenever we're at the dinner table :P.
EDIT: Yes he's had all his vaccinations (including parvo) and the vet said it's probably not grapes, since grapes mainly affect the kidneys.
