I have a female blue heeler who will be 3 Christmas Day. I had her bred back in November, the last day to be tied was on the 11th. If i counted my weeks right, she is due in the neighborhood of the 13th of January. I noticed today that the hair around her anus has a red tint to it. I checked her stool this evening and it has a reddish tint to it, like she may have blood in her stool.
My question is, is this normal. This is the first time i have ever had a dog bred and i just want to make sure she is ok. I am planning on carring her to the vet Friday to get a check up but thought i would check on here first to see if someone might be able to tell me what might be going on. I kinda thought it might be hemroids but wasn't sure. Any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
