    Been back from the vet for awhile. I was goofing off in the shop and noticed my older dog standing in a mess of blood and food that he had just thrown up. My assumption was that he had been poisoned, so I called the vet, got him in the car and got him there. As it turns out he has a condition called Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis. Here is some info-

    Bloody Diarrhea - Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis (HGE) in Dogs

    I had to go see about some work so the Wife stayed with him. He is 13 years old, so it is questionable if he will survive or not, but since they put him on IV fluids, the Wife says he has perked up some.

    Good luck. Maybe your prompt reaction saved your pet. Hope so.

    Thanks much, and I hope so. My hobbies require lots of poisonous stuff and I thought I killed him. As it turns out, a change in diet is in order and we have to reduce his stress.

    Yeah. I guess. I asked if the younger dog will come down with it to, and he told me it does happen, but not much. But yeah, two members of the house now have a Dr.'s note for primo feed, and low stress.

    My prayer's for your dog and other member, 13 is old, but not really old. He may have a good chance.
    You need to reverse and go opposite in the house to reduce stress, especially if there are now two with a Dr.'s note.

    My stuff is in order ! all good numbers. As for my boy, he is perking up. The IV fluids are doing him good. He took a big dump in his cage and they said there was blood in it, but that it was expected. It will be a day or two before we know whats up, but he seems to be better from just being hydrated.

    My dog has a VERY sensitive stomach. I know what you are going through. Watch what he eats and good luck. Hopefully he's got many more years of fun with your family.
