Hello my name is Sara, I have an 8 year old Chihuahua named Paco and recently I have been very concerned for I noticed he has been having bloody diarrhea or just plain blood clot looking things. I would like to know what is wrong with him and what steps I should take to make him better ?
The blood in the stool may occur due to various causes like parasites, food, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, rectal wounds, parvovirus and even stress.
When occurred with vomit and diarrhea, it is very important to visit a vet as dehydration can become very serious very quickly.
As treatment can vary greatly depending on the cause, you should visit a vet clinic as soon as possible, for consultation and diagnostic testing.
All the best for you and Paco.
