• My dog. When he poops he also bleeds.

    Hi Jose, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Bloody poop is concerning as it can be a sign of a serious underlying disease. This can be caused by many different things including infection, intestinal parasites, anal sac issues, a GI foreign body, inflammation of the GI tract, or even a rectal mass. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
