Q. My puppy just pooped out blood and a bit of mucus. He is a boxer and about 2-3 months old. What could be wrong?
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. These are signs compatible with colitis, that is an inflammation of the large intestine.
Colitis may be self limiting or sometimes require some antibiotics to be cured. Considering that most of times colitis are diet related, I would recommended to change his diet to a more digestible and bland one based on chicken and rice (boiled) every 8 hours. That would help to solidify the feces. If the signs persist in the next 24-48 hours or if you notice more signs as vomiting, lethargy, inappetence I would recommend to take hi to your veterinarian as soon as possible.
