Unhappy Loose stool/Mucus and blood in stool

HELP! Yes its Abbie again. She has had an upset stomach for a few days now we think as she has been having loose stools on and off, however today she either poohed or vomited (not sure which but think stool) and this was covered in mucus. I thought perhaps she needs worming again, so i tried this, come back home to find that she has had another loose motion but with blood in this time. The blood is fresh and there is also some by her bottom i since checked with white tissue paper. it is fresh blood too.
I first thought constipation but she has diarrhoea so it cant be that....Any Suggestions??? PLZ

Red? Bright red? Likely an anal blood vessel broken. Black/brown blood would be a bigger worry.

Regardless...Off to the vet. Blood is never good.

Ohhh honey never worm a dog showing any, maybe illness, it could make her worse. Try a tbsp of canned unspiced pumpkin or tsp of pure honey. You could also give tbsp depending on weight of dog Pepto. Give 3 times a day of pumpkin, if it works keep her on this daily once to get her on track. Otherwise you might want to give the vet a call and see if you could get any advise at all. Good Luck

Yes please go to the vet- ASAP. This has been going on for several days so there is no reason to wait any longer. Bring the stool sample with you if you can.

We had a very similar problem recently with Bonnie, she has a very VERY sensitive tummy and although we changed her food over properly she didn't agree with the adult version. We left it a few days because we thought it was just the food gradually changing that was upsetting her but suddenly she started doing horrendous looking poos with loads of mucus and blood in them. I took her straight down the vet and she said it usually looks more alarming than it is harmful for the dog.

She emptied her anal glands (now Bonnie is terrified of the vet!) and gave us some kaolin paste, which helps to firm them up and has probiotic in it and also some antibiotics in case there was an infection. We also put her straight back on the 'Sensitive' food from the vets which costs an absolute fortune but her tummy cleared up very quickly and now she's on ANOTHER new food - Burns - but this one finally agrees with her and we've had no probs since.

So, get her to the vet just in case of infection or obstructions in the gut but try not to worry too much because it looks a lot worse than it probably is Hope that helps, let us know.

If you cannot get pumpkin then try to get the right type of squash-you might have these in the UK

Scoop out the seeds, and cook the flesh until tender (about like for potatoes) and then mash.

i just rang the vet she seeems to think that what we are feeding her is a bit too much for her lil puppy tummy, causing her body to work harder to digest it causing a rupture in a vessel or somthing, gta starve her over night and then start her on boiled chicken and rice tomorrow, if no different book her in for a consultation!
