I on the phone with the vet right now, but Brindle just had diarrhea outside, and it was composed mostly of blood throughout. Her stomach has been making noises the past few days, too. What could this be?

A number of things but best to get her in and checked out.   Could mean severe dehydration to internal injury.  best to see professional assistance IMO.  Good Luck!

I spoke with her vet. She was just in about a month ago, diagnosed with Pancreatitis.

Anyway-they asked if she's eaten anything new. Yes...she occasionally gets into Bella (our puppy's) food. She's also been eating grass and such outside (a sign to me, she's not feeling well). She's fully vaccinated, and during her visit a month ago had a stool culture run (it was negative). So, they are glad she's had one recently. They said to keep an eye on her, and her stools today...and call back if she continues to have bloody stools.

Poor thing, I hope she starts feeling better!

FYI: a couple of vets have told me that the eating grass b/c their stomach's upset is a myth. Most of the time they eat the grass because it tastes good, like a snack. Our dogs eat grass like it's going outof style and multiple vets say it's no problem.

It could be upset stomach, worms, a virus just a number of things...so keep an eye on her and I would not let the stool go more then a day or two at home.  In the meantime keep her hydrated with water and/or gatoraide.....Yeah the eating grass does not mean a while lot...sometimes they will do it to sooth a stomach, sometimes because of worms and sometimes just because they like it...it is the gurrgles that go along with it that tends to lean towards her stomach hurting some....

Sheesh, Lucy eats grass, leaves, sticks, acorns, and anything else she finds on the ground. I am constantly telling her NO :roll:
