It is possible that your dog is experiencing some gastrointestinal issues, which can cause the symptoms you are describing. The bleeding could be a sign of inflammation or irritation in the intestines or rectum, and the softer stool could be a result of diarrhea. It is important to take your dog to a veterinarian for a thorough examination and to determine the cause of the bleeding. The veterinarian will be able to provide you with appropriate treatment to help your dog feel better. In the meantime, you may want to try feeding your dog a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice to help soothe his digestive system. It is also important to make sure your dog has access to plenty of fresh water to help prevent dehydration.
