Thank you for using our service.

First, you fast her for the next 12 hours.
Fasting approach is sometimes effective in acute vomiting or diarrhea. And give her plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
Second, gradually introduce a bland (no bone chicken, boiled white rice) or low-fat diet into her diet. Low fat is crucial as high fat provokes stomach acid which can induce vomiting and diarrhea.
At this point, it should be noted that
- You should eat white rice rather than brown rice.
- Give her a small amount.
- There should be no seasonings or spices.

If she does not improve after all these tries, please allow your veterinarian to examine your pet in order to determine the root cause of your pet’s digestive problem and recommend the most effective treatment.

Bloody stool can be caused by hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, gastric ulcer, bacterial infection, tumor, toxin poisoning, liver disease, etc. It is necessary to determine the exact cause through examination and to treat it accordingly.

And did she get all the vaccines? There’s a possibility of Parvo virus. If it’s a parvo virus, there’s nothing you can do at home. You should go to the vet. Parvo virus has very high propagation power. In addition, in the case of young pets, the fatality rate is also somewhat high.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
