Hello, Absolutely, it is time for a vet visit. EAsy answer. But why?First, bleeding while pooping suggests there is colitis (inflammation in the colon present).http://www.petplace.com/dogs/colitis-in-dogs/page1.aspxBut, Betty is also breathing heavy. That tells me either nausea and/or abdominal pain. So, we cannot effectively manage these symptoms with at home remedies. In addition, we don't know if it's due to something foreign being ingested, toxicity, a reaction, or some other dietary indiscretion. Well worth the vet visit because I know they can easily give some medications to more quickly allevaiate these symptoms. Testing they may suggest might include a fecal test to check or intestinal parasites. X-rays maybe. Depends on the vet. Hope that information helpsDr. Andy
