    I would keep an eye on it but certainly not be that concerned at this stage.

    Just keep an eye on the dog, You can get Mucos, specks of blood and straining with colitis which is inflammation of the bowel. In mild cases it usually helps if you starve by missing a meal, and then feed on chicken or fish
    boiled or grilled no skin and rice. For a day or two, as its an easily digested resting diet. If its going to work, you usually see some improvement within about 24hrs if its not entirely back to normal. If there is no improvement or it does get worse then usually they need to see a vet, and may need Medication to clear it up.

    As long as there is improvement,and it doesnt get worse, and there are no other symptoms, like vomiting, lethargy etc. She may be fine with just witholding the food and a day or two on the resting diet.

    thanks for that that just sounds like it could be that of what i saw , apparently she phoned the vet and they said just to keep a eye on her , and and if she does have anymore like that then she has to take a sample to be tested .

    I had a similar experience last yeat with Chester but he lost quite a bit of blood. I took him to the vet and he had a slight tear in his bottom which took a few days to heal up. Try not to worry just keep an eye on it and if it gets worse tell your friend to go to the vet
