blood in poop

my pup stomach is a sensetive stomach since first day we got her.. her first poop in the early monring is always normal.. the rest of the day is always loose... we didnt pay too much attention to that.. we though is just a sensitive stomach... until this morning... we saw a tiny bit of blood in her poop.... is bright red... (just very little) should i take her to vet?

Yes I would at least call the vet in the morning. They will most likely want a stool sample and maybe see here. I would worry a little about the blood but it might just be that she is a little raw down there from from pooping. Does she poop many times during the day? I have seen this with Murphy in the past until we found a food that has given him more of a firm poo. Keep us updated...good luck.

How young is she? It might be she has parasites that are relatively easy to get rid of but she would need medication.

When my foster pup had some bloody poops, after a stool smear she was diagnosed with giardia. It's not serious, but they do need medication for it. Take her to the vet but make sure you pick up a stool sample before you go to avoid needing to go back.

Yup...its probably parasites (giardia can be one of them). Young pups often times get these at an early age and need to be put on meds more than once. They have weak immune systems at this age. A vet visit seems to be in order. NOt to worry though...not serious really unless left untreated.

Please do call the vet and let us know. I know lots of puppies on the April puppies thread had this problem, too.
