I got a new pup last week. Right away, I noticed a tiny amount of blood, or red, in his stools. They were also soft and had some mucous. I thought it was probably due to the transition of going to a new home, but scheduled a vet visit.
I took a sample to the vet and he thought it might be coccidia (sp?). He gave him a wormer and also put him on Albon. As of today my little guy has been on the Albon for 7 days. As these days have gone by I realize that he is actually having a stool and then, at the very end of it he has a good sized drop of blood. This is happening the majority of the times he goes poop. His stools themselves, have varied between normal firmness to mucousy to 'softserve' like.
He has also started scooting his little butt along the floor in the past 2 days.
I am taking him back to the vet, but am very worried. Has anyone experienced something like this before? (And please tell me it's curable, grin)
He is a Papillon, 10 weeks old, already neutered (breeder had him neutered at 8 weeks), and weighs about 2 pounds.
Other than this scary issue, he is very active, runs, plays, sleeps well, and has a great appetite. I do let him eat frequently.
Thank you for ANY help.
