Q. Mi doggy is popo with little diarrhea and little bit of blood, but overall he looks in a good move , what should I do? thank you

Answered By

A. I recommend getting you puppy seen by your vet for an exam and fecal analysis. The loose stool and diarrhea could be due to parasites, bacterial or viral infection, diet change or eating something that may have upset his GI system. Based on the findings from the exam and labwork, your vet will be better able to tell you the cause of the loose stools and blood and offer treatment options, if needed.
