    Default Blood in stool

    Hello everyone. I just got inside from taking Buddy out to go potty. I know he had 2 bowel movements this morning earlier and it was dark out there so I really did'nt notice anything but just now he had another and there wasn't much but what I did pick up I noticed there was some blood in the stool. He already had parvo back several months ago and was hospitilized for 5 days with that and got thru it ok. Currently he is getting dipped every week on Fridays ( Miltaban) for Demodex.. ( he has had 2 so far) He is acting fine so far and don't know if I should rush him off to the vet or not, quite yet. Is this something that can happen normally or is there definatly something wrong? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks Hero

    Do call your vet just to be safe since he's had parvo and the demodex. Not that they are related. How much blood was in his poop and what did it look like? Could be from straining to go too if he's stools are really hard.

    I would call the vet too, but it might be from straining to hard, might have broke some blood vessels. Was it bright red or dark? Bright red means fresh blood.

    blood in the stool is always worrysome if its a smear its possible as Jeannie said that its from straining.
    bright red blood indicates its from near the rectum..dark blood burgundy would be from further up the intestines and black tar like stool would be digested blood. the latter 2 need a vet ASAP..the first depends on the amount...a tiny bit with a hard stool and I would think maybe a little nick near his anus you could sheck this by wiping his bottom and see if any blood is on the wipe. a puddle of red blood or large amount would obviously indicate trauma and need a vet xx

    Has he had diarrhea the last few times or is it hard? Diarrhea can cause this and as the others have said above a hard pop ca n cause it as well. I would still just give your vet a call just to make sure.

    Thanks everyone. He did strain I believe. I mean at first I was AGAIN Buddy? and he was in his crouching position for longer than usual. There wasn't much stool and the blood was on the outside of his poop and looked fresh and like it was almost running down the stool. I think I will call the vet as suggested. Just to make sure. I have been giving him slices of apples lately. Macs and I was wondering if the skin on the apples could have done it. Also there is a lot of debris.. tree limbs. sticks ect outdoors due to this storm that passed by here but I always try to make sure he doesn't get any in his mouth or swallow any.. I guess I will call one of the vets techs and ask although I am sure they will say bring him in ( $$) I swear I have had more problems with Buddy and hope that after reaching adulthood he might become more stable.. Thanks everyone. Hero OO I forgot to mention no- no Diarrhea and he is acting fine.. playing as usual..

    I bet it's just for straining then but always good to at least call the vet and they can tell you if you should come in or not. And if there's sticks, etc in there, well can imagine what those do as they're coming down the shoot.

    @Lucy-licious, that's great info on the different colors of blood.

    It sounds like it could be from straining or constipation as others have described above.

    Just an an addition, when Herman's bottom was red and appeared irritated, both Desitin and Butt Paste were recommended to me to soothe it - if Buddys seems irritated (like red/swollen)
