Last weekend my formerly house-trained dog decided he could poop and pee wherever he wanted. Last night he had two bright-red, bloody bouts of diarrhea withing 30 minutes. Today his stool was jet black and looked like tar. He hasn't vomited, been lethargic, cried or anything... still the same hyper dog.
Before anyone starts yelling at me, YES, I am taking him in tonight. However, just like for my own illnesses, I like to have some idea before I walk into a health-care facility.
BTW: He's a 2 year old min pin with no other signs of illness. In fact, he's on a run right now with my daughter.

Plastic can cause damage, not show on an x-ray, and be deadly. It sounds like he is having bleeding in his stool (black stool) and I would count on it costing $500 just to find out with x-rays and stool exam (microscopic). I hope your dog is ok.

Next question overall
Has anyone here suffered negative side effects from an epidural?
