Blood in Poo

I've attempted a search and could not find anything on this topic as the search results just brings up only bloodline.

I've been experiencing blood in one of my dog's poo. I would like to know if this is something alarming or it would just go away. it is not a lot of blood it is a minimal traces that I see but I don't know if I should rush her to the vet or it's something that will cure on it's own or it's just a matter of "give her 2 aspirin" (Whatever that may be for dogs) and she'll be OK.

All response are are highly appreciated.

if the dog has had bad diarrhea its somtimes normal for small small amounts to be their.

my female had that problem after switching foods and my vet said it can be from their upset stomach and only to bring her in if it gets worse or reoccurs frequently(more then 1-2 days)

has your dog acted like it was in pain in any way? any abnormal actions like twisting and turning, picking at its stomach?

I'm a serious worry wart, so I would take her to the vet with a poo sample. Of course, I had one of my pups die from an upper GI tract "situation" and spent alot of my time looking at bloody stool

Thanks for all the responses. The blood is dark red as mentioned beforenot much just traces. She does not have diarrhoea, her stool is however soft (soft with texture) but that's been the case ever since, she very seldom go hard (solid).

She is 14 months.

And yes, she is somewhat lethargic, I say somewhat because if she sees iguanas out in the yard she still goes ballistic.

It rained here the last couple of days and she's gotten wet in the rain while outside to go. Could she have gotten a cold? She seems to be a bit warmer than ussual. Fever?

@Nizmo, I've switched a long time ago and she was doing great.

@fortyfootelf, No no pain and twisting just unussually quite, like something is wrong. She drinks well but does not want to eat this morning. She has had the food for 10 minutes so I can't determine about that yet but ussually it's gone by then.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

my immediate reaction to this would be to take her to the vet. you said the stool was dark red traces and she isnt eating... im thinking that she got into something that isnt good for her. but to be on the safe side, have you read or heard anything about your brand of food being recalled for any reason? exactly how long was she exposed to the rain? most of the tiem your dogs immune system is strong enough to fight a cold quickly. plus she would have similar symptoms as a human, runny nose cough and the restlessness. i really hope you figure out what this is and let us know... it doesnt seem too serious but you never know... if your dogs isnt eating try to get her something that will fill her up a little. maybe some eggs, or yogurt, somthing holistic and healthy for her yet something easy on the tummy

You need to go to the Vet ASAP dark blood in the stool is an indication of a bleed somewhere in the stomach or intestine. I could be caused by many things like a partial blockage or cancer. Again many things can cause a bleed but none of them are good signs and you could lose your dog if you do not go in right away.

The times where blood in the stool is somewhat normal is if the dog has the runs and the colon gets inflamed and you see streaks of bright blood in the stool. The bright color is because it is in the colon and the dog is pooping the dark blood is old blood from somewhere else and again that is NOT good.

It could be as simple as giardia or coccidia, or as deadly as cancer or ulcer(that could cause a dog to bleed out). The only way to find out is to go to the vet. I am all for home health care for simple things but I was a vet tech and this I would not handle on my own.
The fact she also does not feel well worries me that something big is going on in her system but the longer these go the worse they can get so again time for a trip to the vet and let us know what they say!

Dogs do get virus or cold but bleeding and pooping dark blood is not a simple cold it has to be looked at by a vet.

Thanks again for the responses. I guess I will be taking her to the vet in the morning. She did not eat all day. I did get her some vitamins and pedialite. I will try some rice with chickenstock and chicken breast to see if she would eat this. I was out to do a job and just got back and my wife tells me that she's passing gas and the gas smells like canned dog food which I don't feed her so I'm wondering if she probably ate something that was not good for her. When we take her out at night to do her rounds you can never tell out in the street what she gets I try my best to avoid her from getting into anything weird but it just might've slipped me. I'm considering on muzzling her from now on when we take her out at night.

I must add that we feed them raw after reading up a great deal on this I've been doing so since January. I totally see a difference in their development since but this is just weird to me.

Thanks and I will keep you posted.

bryan, how long has this been going on? like your dog not eating and the bloody stool? somthing like this shouldnt be let go very long due to the fact it can be more serious than you or i think... like performance said this is not something you should handle on your own... i can see your dog not eating one day or maybe even 2 but thats pushing it. it is not healthy for your dog not to eat. i know some are picky eaters but if they are hungry they will eat. and the same with being sick. im thinking that performance is right in saying that he is probally bleeding internally, maybe he ate something that he shouldnt. i hope you and your dog the best, and keep us updated on what the VET says. this forum is a great place to learn and get help when needed but it really sounds like this has been going on too long to be asking for answers on a medicle condition.

I've (My wife) been to the vet which I despise doing. They took a look at the dog and don't know what the dog has. They've however determined that she has a high fever (105F) and they were surprised to see her still walking around and playing with the fever that high. All the doctors just stood in amazement. They suspect that it's a tick borne disease, but still not sure. They've administered antibiotics and I have to go back everyday. That is costing me a capital especially not knowing what it is. I don't mind paying, it is my dog but please make it look like you know what you're doing or at least know more than I know, I didn't study for this, I do allot of reading or I ask questions and I definitely spend time with my dogs to know how they react under variable circumstances.

They've also determined that the red or white bloodcell count shout be 175 and it's 62. I don't have that info right asI did not get it right from my wife. I have to go back today and I'll get that fact right. The fever is scary high any suggestions to get it down other than the antibiotic injection from the doctor? I've been giving her children's Panadol, I don't know if you have the same medications in the US that we have here, so this might be foreign to you and then again not.

Any help for the challenges mentioned above would be great.

Thanks for all your help, it's really appreciated.

I'm now back from the vet. The problems that the dog been having with the blood in the stool seems to be not alarming says the doctor. I haven't seen it since either but she was just lethargic. Her temp is back to normal and she is moving quite better. She just drank a ton of water which she had not been doing for a few days. I will try and give her some food in a bit to see if she will eat. She seems to be back to normal though. i still have to visit tomorrow to get some more antibiotic and then they will start giving me pills for her. But it seems fine.

The only thing that bugs me is that I don't know what was the cause and I'm that type of person that wants to know in order to avoid it or know what to do should the situation present itself again.
