New puppy with blood in stool

Hello!
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!

I would call the vet and ask. They are the best to diagnose these things. It could be as simple as you put the pup on a new diet. This is sometimes the reaction they have to a stomach upset. Call and see what the vet thinks.

Yep I'm with Dawnben - a phone call to the vet for your peace of mind that it can wait - I know exactly where you're coming from though

Thank you! I kept an eye on him all day. He had a tiny bit of red in another stool then nothing since.
I will still keep an eye on him, I think we all finally agreed on naming him Kingston, but I think it was the probing. He had really freaked out when the vet performed the test and it took a bit to calm him down after. I didn't want to take him in and having them suggest doing it again to rule out something else they didn't test for!

Thanks again!
