Exclamation PLEASE HELP! Red coloured diarrhea, is this blood? What to do? (Poop img.)

Hi guys. Just this morning Cas (10 months, male) started having really wet diarrhea. It's coloured bright red. Yesterday we had guests over and there is a slight possibility he may have consumed large red grapes. I don't think it's that likely though because he was only in the living room for a short time and we were watching him. He eats Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice (Adult). Occasionally we give him rawhide to chew on or frozen mango to stuff in his Kong. Anyone have any idea if this is blood or something else? Or what could be causing this diarrhea? Thanks for the help.

Grapes can be very bad for a dog. Take him in right away.
That looks like blood!! Tell vet about the grapes and blood!

Grape and raisin toxicity in dogs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grape_and_raisin_toxicity_in_dogs


The phenomenon was first identified by the Animal Poison Control Center ... Strangely many dogs can ingest large amounts of grapes with impunity so it is not ...

yep thats blood.... I would call the vet ... I doubt it is the grapes but that pup has a really irritated colon which is the blood... they are probably going to want to run blood work to make sure that is all set and have you fast for a day or so then bland diet....

I agree-that is fresh blood, which is quite possibly coming from the intestines, or a fissure (although it looks like a lot of blood for a fissure).

I would call the vet and see what their advice is.

Yes, it is blood in my opinion. Because it is bright red I would guess it is a lower GI tract problem/colon problem. Lots of possible causes (see here : Dog Diarrhea Treatments, Causes, and More and here : Simple Diarrhea in Dogs - Clivir - How to Lessons, Tips & Tutorials ).

If it were "just" diarrhea, I would take a fast and see approach but with blood I think it is vet time.
