Q. My puppy is 3 months old, in the last week he has started pooping bright red blood. He's been wormed and has had his shots. He's eating/drinking fine.
A. Puppies typically require multiple dewormings to clear intestinal parasites. Submit a stool sample to your vet. In the meantime, try withholding food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the bloody stool does not resolve or your pup becomes lethargic, see your veterinarian.
