My family rescued a rott that had been left behind when the owners moved. She was starving and dehydrated. She drank lots of water, but has only eaten a little bit- even though she is obviously starving and mal-nourished. We noticed today that she had bloody diarreah. The dog is about 1-2 years old. Any ideas what the probable cause? The vet is not opened today. Thanks!
It could be the fact that she hasn't had any food and is just now getting some. Feed her 4 to 5 small meals a day. Her systems needs to adjust to being fed again. The loose stool could be irrating her bowel and causing the blood. Then again, if they didn't feed her, they probably didn't give her shots either. Get her to the vet and let us know what happens.
