Please could some one give me some brief advice. My Staffordshire Bull Terrier has some blood amongst his poo, this has happened on two occasions (about 1 week apart), I wondered if this was a common thing with dogs etc (it is not mixed with the poo, but on it). I[/quote]

My first concern would be perforations in the digestive tract. Does he have any other symptoms that are out of the ordinary?? Have you checked his temp? If so what is it?? Has he eaten anything (say a stick or something he wasn't suppossed to) that could have caused a tearing or rip?? Could be something internal or an injury on the anus. What is he eating? Kibble, RAW, homecooked diet????

I had a friends dog who ate a wooden popcicle stick and it caused some rips and internal bleeding which was evident in the stools.

Personally, I would stay on the side of caution and take your dog to the vet ASAP. If possible bring a fresh stool sample with you as well.

Keep us posted on what you find out and his condition.
