My Bella is Sick
I need some advice. I'm really concerned about my 3 yr. old Yorkie Bella. A few weeks ago she developed this rash on her belly and had blood in her stool. I brought her to my animal hospital and she was given some medication. The rash has gone away but she hasn't gone to the bathroom (#2) in a few days and I'm really concerned. She does pee though regularly. She has been eating mostly rice and a little bit of chicken. Every now and then she'll eat her regular kibble but not much.
What's weird is she's acting normal - jumping, playing, and being her lovable self. She isn't in any pain from what I can tell. Any thoughts on whether or not there's a problem? I have called her vet who hasn't called me back yet. I'm just a concerned parent.

It's possible that the rice is constipating her, especially if she's not eating much else. Since she had blood in her stool recently, I'd definitely bring her to the vet and have her looked at. Good luck and keep us posted.

i would certainly switch to brown rice has fiber to help keep them regular.

Also check her anal glands and see if they are full, if so they need expressing.

The illness and meds might have her digestive tract a little out of whack. I would ask your vet about adding a little probiotics to her food. You can get them where you buy vitamins for dogs.
Life is merrier with a Yorkshire Terrier!
