Causes, Symptoms and Treatments If Dog ​​has blood in the stool.

The presence of blood in the stool of a dog is a warning signal not to be taken lightly, without falling into panic. This can usually treated very well with appropriate medications.

Blood in the stool: The stools of your dog are of a distinct red color or abnormally dark. Though impressive, this complex disorder remains relatively common. However, it is important to understand its origins in order to better cope with them.

Types of bleeding and possible causes.

There are two distinct situations: hematochezia and melena.

 

HEMATOCHEZIA

Hematochezia refers to stools mixed with pure red blood from the lower part of the digestive system (large intestine or rectum). This symptom can be explained by:

A parasitic disease

Food intolerance

A colitis (inflammation of the mucosa of the colon)

An infectious disease: parvovirus, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis

A rectal tumor

The presence of a foreign body in the digestive system

An anal gland disorder



THE MELENA

In the case of melena, it is digested blood from the upper part of the digestive system that is found in excreta. It is very dark, making the droppings black. It comes in general:

From an injury, an abscess or a tumor of the mouth or nasal cavity

Severe gastritis, ulcer or tumor of the stomach

Inflammation, ulcer or tumor of the proximal small intestine

 

What tips to remedy this?

It is unfortunately impossible to determine exactly the origin of the bloody stools of a dog without analysis. It is therefore very difficult to remedy it yourself. Do not give any medicine to your pet, at the risk of making things worse. The only treatment you can administer it without fear is a digestive dressing, in case the bleeding is accompanied by diarrhea.

 

Should I consult and when?

Blood in the stool does not necessarily hide an atrocious disease, but often a pathology that is treated very well with a suitable treatment. Note also that hematochezia is less alarming than melena, red blood usually coming from a simple irritation of the colon or anus. However, consult your veterinarian as soon as possible, especially if the blood loss is associated with vomiting and if the general condition of the dog deteriorates. Your practitioner may perform stool analysis, ultrasound, radiological examination or endoscopy if necessary.

 

What if it was a rat poison poisoning?

The ingestion of anticoagulant raticide can also explain the presence of blood in a dog’s stool. If your pet has had access to such a poison, He is lethargic and vomits blood, you should consult your veterinarian without delay.
