My dog, Coco, looks like she has a little blood on her anal area after pooping. I have not been able to see any stool yet b/c it was dark when she went outside and I tried taking her out on the leash, but she didn't go poop. She has also been licking her anal area more than normal.
Short summary of previous problems.
Coco is 4 years old, a Pitbull, has a history of allergies, she has been constipated once before in the summer of 2006, she had a bump next to the anal area that we had biopsied and the could find anything from it, then the bump went away, but their have still been some irritating places (not bumps) since then and they seemed to think its allergy related, then she had emergency surgery about 1 month ago for Pyometra. Coco has also developed a behavioral issue (Shaking and Panting) with smoke dectectors when it's going off or just beeping b/c the battery is low and with the timer on stove if it starts beeping.
Recent problems in the last week.
Last Wednesday night 11-15-06
, Coco woke up in the middle of the night freaking out (Shaking and Panting), like their was a beeping noise or something and she did it again the next night 11-16-06
. I figured out what the problem was that next morning 11-17-06
. When I was letting them go outside, she didn't want to go anymore, so I stepped outside the door and their was a beeping noise kind of like when the smoke detectors battery is low and needs to be replaced. Thats why she was freaking out for two nights in a row. Then, she didn't even want to go outside in the back yard. We did find out that it was the neighbors smoke dectector beeping and they have fixed it as of Saturday 11-18-06
. Since then, we have been getting her to go outside and use the bathroom.
So I'm not sure if this blood is related to her having all this stress with the smoke dectector beeping or not. We are leaving to go out of town tomorrow afternoon and I don't know what to do about my dog. Both of my dogs are staying at a Kennel, but it's not a Vet, just a Kennel Only. Can anyone please help? Any advice welcome.
