What to do About Bloody Diarrhea in Dogs
Bloody diarrhea in dogs can be a serious concern, and you should take the pet to the vet as soon as possible for a proper professional assessment. Depending on the actual issue, it may not be good to waste time.
There can be quite a variety of causes with a bloody diarrhea situation, whether or not it is accompanied by vomiting problems. An array of causes could include, but is not limited to the below list:
- HGE (Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis)
- ParvoVirus or CoronaVirus
- Gastrointestinal ulcers
- Addison’s Disease (HypoAdrenoCorticism)
- Gastrointestinal cancer
- Intestinal parasites
- Feline Distemper virus
- Consuming of foreign objects
- Viral or bacterial infection
- Excess Toxicity, or Colitis
You can see from the list presented, that when bloody diarrhea occurs, it can be a complex diagnosis process. If your vet comes up with an analysis that does not seem rock-solid to you, you may consider a second opinion – just as you would with a serious matter in yourself on occasion.
