Inflammatory Bowel Disease
I noticed this morning that my dog had some bloody stool – she is a female and hasnt been spayed yet. I just came home from work and she is acting differently than normal. She was shaking a bit and is a little glassy eyed and not as energetic as usual. She seems a little sick to her stomach. As finances are very tight – I was wondering if should go ahead and take her to the vet or wait until tomorrow morning. Any help you could give would be appreciated.
