    Just back from the vets'. And am still perplexed. No blood in the stool sample (good). Anal sacs were expressed and normal ( except as I was holding Schultz...he had a definate pain response when the right side was done as opposed to the left side) (good)? No polyps and everything felt normal (good). Of course, there was no blood today....

    So I'm to watch him and chart the blood incidents and keep the vet posted.....She still thinks it was an irritation that will likely heal in time, if it hasn't already.....is that a good enough explanation? I don't want to go looking for trouble and he eats and poops like normal....don't you wish they could talk and let you know what's going on?

    Good LORD do I wish they could talk...then Banks could tell me why she 'yipe's and runs in the corner'

    At this point, it seems they did everything they could.. and I do go through this with Banks a LOT... keep track of when you see blood -- the only other thing I can think it might be is an anal fisher (cut on the anus) --doesn't that just sound painful?

    Thanks for your input....oh, and I read somewhere that when a dog feels a pain it's instinct for him or her to take shelter in a tighter space...I witnessed this with my golden in her later years when she had arthritis and would move or get up too quickly it hurt and she would either go into a corner or try to wedge herself under a table....just thinking about Banks' yipes and corner episodes.

    Sounds like a fissure to me. Newborns at work get them sometimes. Little bit of bright red drops. After a big thick poo it opens again and bleeds, then it closes and no blood until another thick poo stretches it open! Keep us posted

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    I am pleased, that Schultz blood drops were only a short incident.


    Yes, we want to talk with our dogs. I am sure, they want to talk with us too.
    Once a had a exciting experience with my bulldog Wilma. She was lying on me, her head on my head, and I talked to her.
    Suddenly she opened und closed her mouth in the same way I did. She obviously tried to talk with me but she could not produce the sounds.
    I found it emotionally very moving.
