You should take him to vet as soon as possible to make sure you can cure him on time! ... why wait? ... the sooner the better, cause vets knows what to do! ... I wish you well and speedy recovery for your pet!

When my dog was doing that I took her to the vet and it was a bacterial infection. They gave her some anti biotics and she was fine.

I was going to say pretty much what everyone one else has been saying that your dog could of picked up something from the yard or maybe a parisite. It's really good that your taking your dog to the vet that's the best thing you can do. Good luck and take care and hope all goes well.

everyone seems to have answered you question. I, however, would like to say that I'm glad you are taking your doggy to the vet asap. So many ppl just ignore problems like this.

Make sure you're cleaning up all stool right away to get everything out of the environment. Take a fresh stool sample in with you to the vet. It could be something like giardia, or intestinal parasites. Good luck, hope its something easy to get rid of!!

Well, it sounds like everyone has pretty much given you the same answer I would have given you....Any blood in the stool should be taken seriously...and your puppy taken to the vet ASAP

Has your pup had all her vaccinations?It could be Parvo.Maybe a parasite infestation. Take your baby to the vet for a thorough workup.

I hope by now your dog has been to the vet. Even if it means an emergency vet, I would not wait.
