Hi, I'm waiting for the vet to re-open from lunch in an hour...Wondered if anybully here has seen this in
their bullies/ other doggies? Just a small amount of blood after she strained to poo a few minutes ago....
When I went to clean/ look, I could see a tiny protrusion that I'm assuming is a hemorrhoid; however, we
never know for sure till we see the vet......I cleaned the area with warm water followed by Witch Hazel
(I figured "Tucks" hemorrhoid pads for humans have witch hazel, and it's soothing---Also, the vet
said I could also clean her vulva with Witch Hazel....so I really like the stuff!)..
She didn't wince or run away...the warm water and W.H. probably felt soothing. The verrry SMALL amount
of bleeding stopped right away. Oh, but it scared me at first, to see blood dripping down....poor baby! :-(
I went to google right away, and read that hemorrhoids in dogs are very RARE, soooo,...we'll see what
the vet says.....(oh, and she also had several soft (not loose, but almost!) stools the other night....as a
matter of fact, she pooped FOUR times the other night, and I NICELY told "Daddy" that he probbbably
went overboard with the treats that evening....
.ANyhoo, thanks for reading, and please lemme know any rectal issues your baby(ies) have dealt with and what
happened....thank you, and HUGS to everbully!!! :-)
