My dog just recently saw the vet because there was blood in his stool. Turns out, his anus was just tore up to hell because of severe indigestion problems. Vet gave him a clean bill of health.
This morning, his gums were nice and pink. Now they're pale-practically white.
He's doing perfectly fine though. Eating, drinking water, playing around happily, etc...
Is it just from blood loss? It's weird, because this happened the day before yesterday.. Should he go back to the vet? Or should I just keep an eye out for right now.
Anybody have this? Suggestions?

Ok, well - glad your dog is on the mend - I would keep an eye - Mostly the gums and lips ( mouth) color tells us about Oxygen levels...
If he seems to be breathing well and free from pain, keep and eye -
Also, if you need help with a good diet / extra fiber and supplements - see here :
many experts to help on dog food and reviews...
Good luck !
