A. If your pup has already been to the vet but is still having diarrhea with blood in it, it is best to schedule another appointment. If your pup is very ill and your vet is closed, seeking ER care may be best. Bringing in a sample of your dog's stool can help look for common issues, while your vet may also recommend bloodwork or an X-ray to check for foreign bodies, metabolic and organ based issues. A bland diet of rice and boiled chicken like you are feeding is best to be easy on the stomach until the cause of the diarrhea can be found.
