do I need to get my dog to the emergency vet tonight? does he even need to go to the vet?
my dog is 1 year old and has diarrhea for the second day and started leaving blood spots were he poops. he is only eating half his food but drinking a lot of water still runs and plays just not as much do I need to get him to a vet?
Yes you do. It's not normal to have blood in their stools/poop. Also dogs, like other animals, are very good at hiding when they are ill. Your dog is drinking lots of water because he/she is probably dehydrated (lack of fluid) due to the diarrhoea and this can become very serious - so take your dog and get them checked out asap. The blood might just be because of the diarrhoea irritating the lining of the bowel, but still needs to get checked.

Do you have challenges bringing your dog to the vet, and if you have, what are they?
