Ask Dr. Dobson: Diarrhea/Blood in Stools

My pug puppy is about 4 1/2 months old.  For the past few days she has had diarrhea ending with a few drops of blood.  She is as playful and energetic as ever and has a hearty appetite.  There hasn’t been any recent change to her diet and she’s been eating the same high-quality puppy food for about a month.  Please let me know what I can do to help her.  Thank you!

Hello

These symptoms can be caused from several different things and can worsen over time.  It is a good thing she is still eating. She needs to keep up her nutrients and hydration, especially at such a young age.

Because of the broad range of causes for these symptoms, we would recommend that you schedule your puppy for an exam so that our doctor can appropriately treat her.

Please call (801)224-2233 to schedule an appointment.

Thank you
