    Default Diarrhea with blood

    Friday night took buttercup out for a walk before bed time and noticed that she had a wee bit of loose stool, but didn't think much of it, then Saturday all day she had diarrhea and started to worry me, this morning my wife takes her out for her morning walk and she comes inside all in a panic that there is quite a bit of blood in her diarrhea!!!....so she comes inside the house with her and poor thing went on the floor inside the house twice....so I boiled up some rice and gave her rice water and mixed the boiled rice in with her kibble, no better, still diarrhea and blood, so I decided that we could not wait till tomorrow to take her in so I took her in to an emergency clinic. The vet is not sure what it is but gave her two needles, some low fat food, and 2different sets of pills

    How frightening for you. Is there any chance she ate something she shouldn't have? Often after several bouts of diaherria there will be blood in it. If its bright red its probably caused by irritation from the diaherria . But I am worried she could be trying to pass something. I would go to my regular vet and request X-rays. Sadly, not all obstructions will show up on X-rays tho. You can give her the bland diet.. No kibble at all. Just rice, boiled chicken ..look up bland diet here. There are lots if threads. I sooo hope she is ok... But if it were me..tomorrow she goes for a thorough going over.

    Oh no poor Buttercup. Do you think she could have gotten into something, or eaten an object that you don't know about?. My male Bulldozer has eaten a sock twice and we didn't know about it, or when he had eaten it, the first one he threw up, and the second one he got really sick, started with a lot of diarrhea, and some vomiting, as the day went on he got more and more diarrhea, and had blood in it because of irritation, we brought him to,the vet, and she gave him an X-ray which showed a shadow in his intestines, we still didn't know what it was, just that there was something in his intestines. She gave him some IV fluids, a strong laxative, some pain medications , and some fibre food. We were sent home with the X-rays and she had phoned the Emergency Vet Hospital, because she really thought he was going to need surgery, but that night he did pass the object, which ended up being my Grandsons sock, we were really close to going for surgery if he hadn't of passed it, after he passed it he was fine and back to normal. Just keep an eye on her, signs of obstruction are vomiting, diarrhea, drooling from the mouth, and being lethargic. Hopefully it's nothing serious and she just has an upset stomach, but if it doesn't get better, I would go back to the vet and have an X-ray or a barium enema to see if she has swallowed anything. Feel better Buttercup, and get better soon. Keep us posted on how she is doing.

    Here are pictures of the sock he passed and the X-ray showing the shadow

    Oh goodness! I hope Buttercup gets better soon. It's no fun when our babies are sick, and even worse when we don't really know what is wrong with them.

    I am no expert on this sort of thing, but did they xray her for an obstruction as well?

    What color is the blood.....red blood is usually a sign that something is irritated or possibly an intestinal infection. Dark blackish color means something is definitely up that needs to be checked out right away. Prayers coming your way and we hope you and her a quick recovery.
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that have died (in battle). Rather we should thank God that such men have lived.

    Is the mucusy? If yes, I would ask the vet to run a test for giardia

    Had this happen recently, turns out puppy was upset! Not to say that this couldn't be something more serious, but often it turns out to be something as minor as changing a schedule, a spouse leaving for a couple of days, or better yet, they get into something they shouldn't have - around here, it usually turns out to be the kitty littler box....ewwww.... I do everything under the sun to make sure that doesn't happen, but sometimes, SOMEONE (the spouse) forgets to close the door where that is! Hope your baby is better soon.

    Hi @crazy1469 I am wondering how old is your Buttercup? When Penelope was a baby and had only been home with us for about a week, she developed diarrhea with blood in it and our vet did a fecal test and it was a parasite. It was very scary for us but she started medication that day and it cleared up pretty fast. Did they take a sample of the stool and test it?

    I hope she is well soon.
