Worried

Losing blood can be very dangerous for your dog. Have you called the vet to tell them what has happened?

Call your vet.

I had a dog once do this. I called the emergency vet in the middle of the night to see if I needed to bring him in. After a few questions that I answered, we had determined it was from him getting into and eating about half a bag of cat food. I guess the high protein upsets the intestines. I put him on a bland diet and he was fine, but it was the scariest thing to see.

I am thinking that he might have even asked me if the dog had eaten any cat food, which he had.

I'd call the vet - that is definitely blood. If they're anything like my vet, they'll want a stool sample, as well. (So much fun!).

And yes, if there is even the smallest chance that grapes were consumed - you have to call the vet. We went through that with my parents dog and they had to get him on meds.

Good luck!

If he was acting lethargic and the stool smelled I'd be really worried about Parvo. Hopefully he has had his vaccines. It is likely an irritated colon or maybe intestinal worms can cause bleeding but that is a lot of blood for that. Give us an update when he gets to a vet! Good luck!

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.

Cas

LET us know what the vet says tomorrow. I worry about the bleeding.
Did the vet test his blood to make sure he isn't anemic from the bleeding.
Did he do xrays of his stomach?
