Dog Health Blood in Stool is explained on this page plus what you should do if you notice this sign and symptom with your pup.
Healthy dog poop is Brown, moist, not too hard and not too soft. For example, too hard indicates that your dog is consitpated and needs to drink more water.
Some problems and causes that you might notice with your dogs poop:
This means that your dogs poop is trying to tell you something. Since you have to pickup your dogs poop when cleaning the yard, keep this poop, and take it to the vets.
Your dog health blood in stool can indicate a serious complication (it might be minor), but you want to make sure that if it is something serious that its treated right away!
Here are many of the diagnosis that can cause dog health blood in stool:
Red Poop or red streaks (Hematochezia)
Means blood is fresh and so the blood is probably coming from the lower intestines or rectum.
Causes could include:
Black Tarry Poop (Melena) - usually more serious
Blood is coming from higher in the intestines or the stomach.
Many of these diagnosis can be quite serious, yet if caught early, easily treatable, so you want to make sure that you are able to treat them as soon as possible. Bring your dog to the vet along with the stool sample to rule out any serious disease and so your dog can be treated as soon as possible.
An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Treat the problem early and save money and heart-ache.
The above advice is not meant to replace veterinarian advice or stool testing. If you find blood in your dogs stool. Take it to the vet along with a stool sample.
