my poor puppy is 11 weeks old and since we've gotten her shes been in the e-vet more than not, shes had a random infection, hook and round worm and an intenstinal infection. I dont know why she keeps getting so sick. And I just noticed that she has this rash or something on her back leg, here's a picture. She also screams so loud if we touch her tail, and she's bleeding from her rectum... i have no idea whats wrong with her. Please help!

It kind of looks like it may be a hot spot. We just changed her to natures recipe puppy formula, so that she could get the dha... maybe she is having an allergic reaction?

Does she have diarrhea or does she seem to strain when she tries to have a bowel movement? Or are her bowel movements very small like marbles?

What other symptoms or signs is she presenting?

She's not straining when she has a bm and they are soft and normal, when I just took her out to have a bm it was fine but I was looking at her poop from earlier that my bf didn't pick up and it looked like marbles. she's not having any other symptoms which is weird. Sad

Dog Anus Problems and Infection

Rectal or anal bleeding in dogs can be a result of different factors. Most often, problems of the anus, rectum or colon are responsible for it. Most cases of bleeding occur due to constipation, colon inflammation and rectal inflammation. Inflammation of the colon is also known as colitis and is known to cause constipation and diarrhea. Inflammation of the rectum is also referred to as proctitis. Bleeding can also occur due to tears or fissures in the rectum, rectal polyps, damage or injury to the sacs surrounding the anus and colon tumors. The accompanying symptoms and type of bleeding is indicative of the underlying condition. It also helps to identify if the source of the problem is in the colon, anus or rectum. Colon problems are most likely when there is mainly red blood in the dog’s stools. The problem may lie in the rectum or anus when there is fresh red blood dripping from the rectum and symptoms such as mucus discharge, frequent stools, straining while defecating, small stools, blood coated stools and licking or whimpering. Dog anus infection may occur when there is a buildup of bacteria. Untreated infections can lead to abscesses. Dog anus problems may also be attributed to the type of food a dog receives. Cheaper dog food brands contain a lot of fillers which can lead to soft stools.

A rectal examination and blood and fecal tests are done by the vet to determine the cause of the problem. More extensive tests such as a colonoscopy or endoscopy may be necessary in case of rectal polyps or colon inflammation. In some cases, many tests may be required to pinpoint the cause of anal or rectal bleeding. But in most cases, bleeding does not occur due to any serious problem. In case the dog is also experiencing other symptoms such as severe diarrhea, listlessness, nose bleeds, bruising or patches on the skin and heavy and persistent bleeding, it is essential visit a vet immediately.

Sounds like another trip to your vet to check her sores and her bleeding.

Because she's so young with so many problems going on at once, I'd be taking her right back to the vet. Especially since she's bleeding. Things can become an emergency fast when they are pups and it sounds like she's screaming in pain. What's her behavior like? Is she eating, drinking, playing normally? I feel so bad for her Sad

Well I talked with my neighbor and a friend of mine both who are going to school to bw vet techs and they both believe that they are hot spots from her getting bathed too often... it appe ars that my boyfriend who was just trying to be helpful has been bathing her at least once a day because she keeps getting poop on herself since she's still a puppy. I had sone cream here that I put on her to help it. I'm going to be bringing her to the vet tomorrow/ monday for them to look at it more. Hopefully that is it. My poor baby.
