Good afternoon! Nice to meet you.
Sorry to hear that Georgie is not feeling well. Is he neutered (fixed)?
Thank you so much. Is he still passing fresh blood or his stool black?
Thank you so much. Is he vomiting? Eating and drinking?
Thank you so much. Does he have any other medical problems? Is he taking any medications?
Thank you for that information. Please give me a few minutes to type my recommendations.
Okay, I am back. I am quite worried about Georgie. The black stool tells us that he is bleeding from higher up in his gastrointestinal tract. The fresh blood tells us that he is bleeding from lower down in his GI tract. This could be due to toxicity, ulcerations, a GI mass or masses, or less likely, foreign bodies. I would recommend taking him in for an examination and blood/urine testing, and abdominal X-rays. It is important that we rule out these problems, as they can be quite serious. I am so sorry.
