New puppy with blood in stool
We welcomed a new Pomeranian male into our home on Tuesday. He is about 2 1/2 months old. I took him to the vet on Wednesday (yesterday)for a 24 hr check up. He was given a clean bill of health. Today (Thursday)his second stool had some bright red blood in it ( 1st stool was normal) and a few small drops after. Could this just be from the rectal thermometer and the probe they used to get the feces for testing?
He is otherwise acting fine and hasn't had a stool since, although I will be keeping a close eye. Obviously if this continues or worsens I will take him back in but he has shots next week so if I can wait a few days, that would be helpful.
With my children I was always quick to take them to the Dr. only to have it be nothing so after many office fees we learned to give it a day
since I already have another vet appt next week, I don't want to pay another visit just for over reacting!
Thanks for your help!
