    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.
