Dog bleeding from anus.

Species: Dog
Breed: Belgium Melanoise
Age: 5-8 years
My dog is slightly bleeding from her anus, but it isn't noticeable until she sits down and leaves a mark or until I wipe her rear end. She's eating fine, drinking fine, and her energy level is the same. She has been spayed.

Dr. MarieDr. Marie is a veterinarian who practices in a busy animal hospital in Ottawa, Ontario. She created Ask A Vet Question as a resource for good, accurate veterinary advice online. Dr. Marie treats dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, and rats. She has been a vet since 1999.

Is an online vet visit just as good as a trip to your veterinarian? No! But, many times, asking an online veterinarian a question can help save you money. While Dr. Marie can't officially diagnose your pet or prescribe medications, she can often advise you on whether a vet visit is necessary. You can also ask Dr. Marie for a second opinion on your pet's condition.
