    I have had Bentley for about 5 or 6 months now and since the beginning he has had blood in his poop. At first he would have solid poop with blood coming out at the end in little drops. The vet recommended changing his food and we tried a better quality food but the problem has only worsened. He is on the Science Hill i/b type dry food and it is still bloody but always runny and now when he is pooping it looks like his insides are coming out just a little. It is real scary and wondered if anyone else has experienced similar problems with their dogs or if there is any recommendations other than taking him back to the vet...I've been 3 times and it has cost over 200$ now and the problem still hasn't gone away.

    With thanks,
    Bentley

    How old is Bentley you said you have had him for 6 months but is he a pup or older ? Our lab puppy when we first got her had the runs all the time we went through all possabilities with the vet from worms to virus , had blood tests and poo tests and it eventually came down to diet . We put her on royal canin hypoallergenic its protien source is soya so it gives the gut time to recover we had her on it for about 5 days before we started to see an improvement we kept her on this for about 6 weeks and then when all was better and poo was normal we put her on R/C lab junior . If you problem with Bentlet is food orientated it could take a while for it to get better as his poor insides sound like they have been really messed about . Make sure he has been tested for any parasitic infection though to rule any other cause out other than just food intollerance , his insides may look like they are coming out as he has probably been straining while going to the loo for so long it may be like piles ( hemoroids) .Good luck
