Our 12 yr old Mastiff/Rottie Sam has recently had his anal glands expressed ( 1 1/2 months) but now has old blood gathering around his rectum. He is eating Nutro Natural Choice for Sensitive Stomaches, has a normal appetite. He hasn't been vomitting or been lethargic, just this blood secretion. He is going into the vet again tomorrow for a blood count but I am just looking for some info to have when I go in to talk to the vet. Thr vet suggests a possible inflammation, any other insight?

hmmm wonder if something happened to the anal gland?
2 dogs i can find the anal glands no problem and express them myself. But the other..her's became infected and ruptured....she still has problems with them filling with hard stuff. I have to take her in to get them done.
Glad you are taking in to see the vet.

The vet checked his blood count which was normal except in one area which might suggest a parasite. Sam has now been dewormed and we are waiting to see the results of this. Thanks for the reply.
