Monitoring your dog’s health is a very important activity for every dog owner.
You will feel good when the health of your dog is in good condition. Being in a position to notice when your dog is not feeling well will allow you to get the necessary help with immediate effect. An example of a problem related to dog’s health is Bloody Mucus in Stool. When bloody mucous are noticed, it will be necessary to seek help from a veterinarian. The presence of blood in dog’s faces can mean many things others being more critical than others. What are the causes of Bloody Mucus Stool? Here are some of the major causes:
In most cases, dogs feed on food with bones, sticks and even sharp stones. This is due to the fact that they are sometimes evidenced in the dog’s faces. Such sharp objects are capable of causing injuries to the rectal area particularly the anal glands. Therefore it is a good idea to check the dog’s food for any foreign matter that can injure such delicate parts.
Worms like the whip worms, hookworms and the roundworms are the parasites that are sometimes responsible for Bloody and Mucus Stool. Such worms will irritate and injure the intestinal walls resulting in bloody face. Such worms are also responsible for mucus present on faces as they secret mucus. The only remedy is to deworm the parasites and your dog will be relieved. The mucus will accompany the stool when the viruses, irritable bowel syndrome and parasites are present.
Sometimes your dog is under stress and this might be the reason for the blood and mucus in the faces. This happens especially in a situation whereby the stress your dog is undergoing is associated with changes in diet. This will cause some changes in the bowel movements resulting in release of mucus and sometimes blood. The best solution when this happens is to inform a veterinarian.
4.Recent medical surgery.
If your dog had a recent surgery, related to some medical conditions like cancer, tumors or any clotting disorder, then consider it one of the possible cause of your dog’s condition. There might be remains of blood that will accompany the faces. It may be also possible that there is a complication with the injured tissues during the surgery. In case of such a situation, inform a veterinarian immediately so as not to affect the health of your dog.
Those are some of the causes of Bloody Mucus in Stool evidenced in most dogs. However, there are other causes but the most important is to identify the cause and find the most effective solution.
