    Bleeding from anus

    I have an 11 year old lab boxer mix. For the past month he's had some bleeding from his anus. Sometimes it'll drip out while he's laying on his side or if he rubs against something it will transfer. Often it smells like his anal sac secretion. He's not scooting, and rarely has difficulty going poop and usually there is no blood in his stool. Our vet can't seem to make heads or tails of his symptoms. Anyone ever have these issues? He also sometimes will have a "talking" stomach-his stomach will gurgle very loudly and he won"t eat a lot. Not sure if the two issues are related.

    RE: Bleeding from anus

    Hmmm I've never had the bleeding part of what you describe with any of my dogs but I have definitely had the anal sac problem (boy is that a horrible smell). Has your vet had to manually empty his anal sacs? That definitely helped my boy. You can learn how to do it at home too to save money and time, but I'll warn you that it's a gross affair. Hope you find out what's going on with your boy soon!
