My daughter just called and her yorkie (about 1 year old) has been having diarrhea for several days now. Today she thinks she is seeing small amounts of blood in the diarrhea. The dog doesn't act sick at all. Daughter and husband are newlyweds and on a very tight budget so they don't want to make a trip to the vet if it isn't necessary.
Any suggestions or comments?

It could be worms in the intestinal tract or it could be early signs of other diseases. Unfortunately there is no way to know without the dog seeing a vet. Have her call around and see which ones are cheaper or provides a payment plan.

Hi - Sounds like he need to see the vet - Many need some antibiotics - They can get very sick very fast...
