This past Tuesday, my dog Biscuit had blood inhis stools. I thought he had another case of colitis (inflammation ofthe colon), but there was more blood in it than last time. Thishappened on Tuesday and Wednesday. After, that he was finebutI still scheduled an appointment for him, Friday being theearliest.
So his temperature was fine, everything looked fine, except for hisstool sample. The doctor found mites (the kind that are commonly foundin dry dog/cat food. I checked his dog food and there are no mites andit doesn't smell rancid. I placed his food in the freezer so it killsanything that's in there.) Another thing the doctor found was a type ofpseudoparasite (I can't remember the name) that is commonly found inrabbits. He said throughout his practice, he has never seen or heard ofa dog with this kind of parasite. The doctor thinks Biscuit might havegotten into some bunny poop in order to get this. He says it shouldn'taffect Biscuit. Since Wednesday, Biscuit has been fine, but is on aspecial canned food to help cleanse his intestines.
I was wondering in anyone else had this problem before, or with anyother pets. I searched for "rabbit pseudoparasites" on Google, buthaven't found anything. Thanks a bunch!
