When you first posted about Vegas/blood, Colitis was the first thing that crossed my mind. I didn't post, because I felt that there are many on here who probably know more than I do. Years ago, I had a "shaggy dog", and we had to go away and boarded five dogs(all were kept together). When we came back, the shag(Maggie) was pooping bloody stools. Well, she had gotten so upset about being boarded, that she got colitis from her nerves. As soon as I got her home(of course-a Sat night-no vet) I fed her yogurt, and fed her Sun-bland w/yogurt, and by mon. she was better-took her to vet and he said colitis.She had gotten herself so upset-kept her on bland,and yogurt, and a pill to settle her gut. Then she was fine. she never got it again-but never was boarded again.We couldn't afford it anymore-anyway! Maggie was happy! I am happy that it IS something treatable and not too serious Good for you, Vegas!

“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
I had a Scottie for almost 17 years with colitis. She was diagnosed at 4 months. It would flare up with stress and certain foods would make it worse but she had a chronic condition . I cooked for her everyday a mixture of low fat meat ( drained the fat ) rice and veggies plus vitamin supplements etc.- probiotics are amazing. Once I got the hang of what worked she never needed meds. initially she was on prednisone to reduce the inflammation. I worked hard to get her diet right so she would not need to stay on it. This is something that can be handled if it becomes chronic. Then again it may only flare up from time to time. Wish you all the best. Buster, Miss Tallulah and I send hugs.
Wishing Vegas well…hope he's feeling better with the yogurt. We all send him hugs and kisses
Stopping by to wish a great Sunday to Vegas & crew from Me & Cami.
My 1st bully, Brutus
RIP beloved boy.
Oh...the yogurt. I forgot to tell you about the yogurt. I fed them at the normal time....then about an hour later I realized I'd forgotten to give them their yogurt. So I went to the fridge and grabbed the container. Vegas and Orion love cottage cheese and when I'm making my lunch every morning, they go nuts in anticipation of getting some. Well...some thing with the yogurt. Orion was first....she was tap dancing by her bowl as I was dropping some into her dish. She tried to catch it as it was going into her dish which resulted in a head covered in yogurt.
Then Vegas. I was telling my husband that Orion now needed a bath because she had a huge glob of yogurt on her head...as I was dumping a glob into his dish. Same thing. He didn't wait for my "okay" command. He jumped the gun. I must remember to lift dish and insert yogurt rather than try and dump into dish. Both Vegas and Orion have yogurt heads.
Poor Vegas..Stinky and I are praying for you .
I'm so glad to be reading that Vegas is feeling better, and you were able to figure out what it was, so glad it's not something serious and it's treatable. Love and hugs.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
