I think my dog is bleeding from his anus, and I'm really worried he's eaten something awful or fallen very ill. Why could this be happening? What should I do??

Definitely take him or her to a vet. If the blood is coming out while pooping, from my experience, it can be worms (parasites). Either way, treatment is needed.

Rectal or anal bleeding in dogs can be a result of different factors. Most often, problems of the anus, rectum or colon are responsible for it. Most cases of bleeding occur due to constipation, colon inflammation and rectal inflammation. Inflammation of the colon is also known as colitis and is known to cause constipation and diarrhea.
