Rescue Dog Health

Hello guys,

I recently posted about this new dog that we were getting (unwanted) that came from Portugal and was fully vaccinated and dewormed. We have been to the vet with him just two days ago and he was just fine.

I'm the first few days he was really nervous and had some tummy issues but it calmed down to the point he had nothing at all after 3days. Then 2days ago he was sick once but we just assumed he ate too fast.

Today he ate just a tiny bit and didn't want anymore. He then went a pooped 2 table spoons of slime(mostly slime) with some poop and blood mixed into it.

Like I said he is fully vaccinated and has been dewormed. Any guesses of what this could be?

We are trying to tell her to get him to the vet immediately as we have a small child that doesn't have all her vaccines yet (the reason to why we didn't want an adult rescue dog in the first place) but she is saying that this is just nerves and it will go away.

We have to force her to go to the vet everytime but I want to avoid a fight if I can so I'd like to hear some advice first.

Many thanks.

Was the new dogs diet changed at all? Sounds like she's just been switched too fast to a new food and it's causing a tummy upset but really it could be lots of things did the vet do any blood work or take a stool sample when u were there? I'm sure he would have caught an issue 2 days ago if he did

Bloody stool is IMO a red flag, and requires a visit to the Vet.

Yes she changed the dogs diet she refuses to get any dog royal canine because of some past bad experience and that's what he was previously getting.
We took a sample and sent it to the vet. Will get the results on Monday.

She called the vet and he asked for sample of the poop. We will get the results Monday.

Even a change in the water can cause trouble, but do let us know what happens. Don't give up hope.

He was brought to us with a really bad bacteria that is infectious to humans with weak immune system (ie: my 7 months old baby). He got slightly better with antibiotics but is getting poorly again, having runny poop with a small line of blood and throwing up with an empty stomach. The vet wanted us to give another sample today but he is not being very helpful. I'll let you know when anything new comes up, hopefully he will be ok. We are keeping him away from the baby at all times and being really hygienic (washing hads 1000 times a day for example).

Well the dog is not mine but I do feel bad for the little one. He is undeserving of such a faith. I hope he gets better soon.

We also just found out this new dog has a tapeworm. Not sure how since he was dewormed often? Is it normal?
