Blood Spots In Your Boston Terrier’s Poop?

June 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Face it…we all worry when anything appears to be wrong with our pets, especially if they are only young and more vulnerable to certain health problems.

If you have a Boston terrier pup who looks to have blood spots in his poop then there could be a simple explanation, but it is important that you get it looked into as quickly as possible so that treatment could be arranged.

If your pup appears to be happy and healthy, and is eating normally and playing, then often the reason behind blood in the stool is because of certain parasites.

Whilst these can usually be easily treated, if you leave the problem to fester it can get out of hand so it is worth getting your pup to the vet as early as possible to have tests carried out.

Do bear in mind that there are a number of parasites that can cause blood spots in the stool, and these are not always picked up in in-house tests. Therefore it is worth asking your vet to get the stool sample sent off for external testing where specific parasites can be looked for.

There is no one treatment that will treat all parasites, so the parasite will have to be identified before the appropriate treatment can be administered.

Remember, you may find that your vet does an in-house test on the pup’s stool sample, and this may show as being clear, but it could be that it just hasn’t picked up on the parasite.

So, if your vet is unable to identify the cause of the problem with an in-house test, you should ask for an external laboratory test to be performed to be on the safe side.

Whilst a “de-wormer” may be able to deal with the more common parasites, there are other parasites that your Boston Terrier may have that will need specific treatment prescribed.

    I have a 2 yr old boston terrier and he has been pooping out blood. In the morning when I let him out he goes to the restroom and its like regular almost just a little soft but then he goes like 2 or three times just a little every time and the more he goes the softer it gets and in the end he has a little blood right at the end of his last stool that is really runny. What could be causing this is it just that he is staining cause belive me he acts like he is having a real hard time going. He acts normal though he eats plays and just has a good ole time. We just bought him and when we got him he was a little under weight but he is gaining his weight back. Im just worried that it could be something else. I have wormed him to make sure that was not the case he wasnt pooping out worms just blood. Please get back with me on this asap.
