    @Lucy-licious! Thanks so much for that information....I've been reading whatever i could find on it and all I got was 'stress/nervousness' was a possible cause.

    Banks is doing great, nothing about her is out of wack with the exception of some serious sour gas, which is NOT normal for her, the bleeding has stopped and her poo is soft but formed. Still going to keep a real close eye on everything for awhile.

    UPDATE... back to the vet tonight. Banks was fine until this morning.. the bleeding was back and she had her ears pinned all day yesterday.
    We got the appointment with our vet Dr. Rossi (LOVE him) and he was fully informed of the visit from Saturday even so, he did a full exam on her, poor baby... twice in a week for a rectal and he expressed her anal glands just to make sure that wasn't part of the problem. He confirmed all her lab results came back clean and she has coliatis.

    Two meds for the next week with limited activity till she goes at least a week AFTER meds are done with no blood in stool. then we slowly add activities back in to her day. sorry Bankies... no chasing the flashlight for awhile. This is NOT going to be easy for the parents ;-( But, at least it is not too serious.

    Oh, Banks! you poor thing...you're such a trooper tho. It's good you have a clear diagnosis and a treatment plan to follow. Sounds like you are on the right path and Banks is on the road to recovery.

    I couldn't have said it any better.

    Wow...colitis isn't serious? I'd be freaking out.

    Oh, believe me, I'm a mess about it, but when I think of the big picture and what it COULD be... it is not that bad, afterall, she does not need surgery.

    Yes. That's a great thing to remember: It can ALWAYS be worse. Thank goodness it isn't and - as someone else said - you know what it is and have a treatment plan so it's manageable. Avoiding surgery is always a good thing with these guys isn't it? Poor baby. Hope she's feeling better.

    Oh geez, i know, seeing blood coming out of anywhere from our bullys is scary. Finn's been dripping here and there from his privates b/c of the prolapsed urethra and even tho the dr says it's "okay" as long as it's not "a lot" of blood, i freak out inside. I hope for Banks, with treatment and time, her symptoms will be alleviated. Give her a big hug from us!
