A. Blood in a dog's stool can be caused by several conditions including intestinal parasites, gastroenteritis, inflammatory bowel disease or other non-gastrointestinal tract diseases. I would recommend scheduling an appointment with your veterinarian to determine the underlying cause. It would be helpful to bring a fresh stool sample to the appointment for evaluation.
