Have you made an appt to see a vet? Seriously, we can't help. Especially with those sketchy details. Your baby needs to see a vet to find out what is wrong.

Any time you see blood in the stool, teejay, it's a good idea to get your dog checked. At the very least, you need to have a stool sample examined.

Please keep us updated on what the vet says!

Thanks to each of you. I DID take her to ver on Monday. He said she has ulcers that were bleeding and some sort of intestinal virus. Put her on medication and she seems to be much better now. At her size of only 3 lbs, I was really concerned. In her 2 years of life had not had any problems at all. Now she just needs her rabies booster. Again thank you for the advice and I think she will be fine. Vet said she wouldnt need to return to clinic for this unless she didnt make progress by Friday. She is once again eating and acts more normal and playful now. Love to you all!

And no rabies shot until she's 100% healthy.
