* WARNING * GRAPHIC PICTURES *



Well, today I came home from lunch, which is not usual for me, but I wanted to check on the dogs. But when I got home, I came home to the entire laundry room filled with runny stool, and my worst fear, blood. I panicked and grabbed Cassidy, and called the vet. It took me an hour to clean up the mess, and I rushed her to the vet. (The vet advised that I didn't have to come like now, but she needed to come like now, lol) I didn't want the other dog stepping in it. 2 hours later, we found out that Cassidy somehow has developed severe colitis (large intestines are swollen). Cassidy has been acting fine, and appears to be fine still, but I wanted to show you all what I saw when I got home, so if you ever see this, you can call your vet. A dog should never have bloody stool, sometimes they will from constipation, but NEVER this much. Cassidy pooed all over the walls, our clothes, she pooed so much it scared me cause I don't even know where it came from! But here is a picture of what colitis can do to your pup. WARNING! THESE PICTURES ARE GRAPHIC!!!!

I totally understand your panic. I had a GSD that had collitis. Like you we walked into a room of POO. We had to keep anything dairy away from her. We found out the hard way, by giving her a scrambled egg. Its not fun, but it is managable.

I'm sure the vet told you no food for like 24hrs. (its hard because they are hungry) Then start on rice and add in either lamb or chicken. We actually had to go to a Lamb and Rice food. I always kept a box of rice on hand, just in case... (also I noticed when the seasons changed it would act up also)

Good Luck!!!
