My maltese woke up about 4 this morning whinning and crying to get out of her crate.... She normally goes to the bathroom when we get up at 6 am, but she continued to cry until i got up and took her out. Befor ei could get the door open she uses the bathroom infront of the door... It was a little stricks of blood in it and I cleaned it up. she has gone to the bathroom like every 1 to 2 hours.. We left to go to the football game and when we can back she started crying all over again and I took her out and this time it was more bleeding. Is this common when dogs have diaherra to have blood in there stool... do you recommend me give her some type of medicine or she she see her vet... Please help! She has eaten very little food and drank water! I am think she might have eaten something that the kids gave her and got sick she was just fine and then all of a sudden, she started feeling bad. She has been trying to eat food, but I don't know if it will hold on her stomach. What should i do!
After you take your dog to the vet, I suggest you either gate off a place where she is not confined, or put her in an X-pen. She's crying because she's in great discomfort, and it's not fair to keep her in the crate if she has diarrhea. You can place papers down in the gated off area, and also in the x-pen. What did the vet say was wrong with her?
