I don’t know that the cat food would cause the blood in the stool without also causing diarrhea– just wondering, what kind of pills is he taking? Its possible they could be causing the blood, and since he started getting them regularly with the cat food, the timing is a coincidence. 

In any case, you’ll be at the vet this afternoon and they should help you resolve this problem. Generally, vets prefer to see bright red blood in the stool than tarry, bloody stool (often described as coffee grounds or raspberry jam), so while you definitely need to get to the bottom of this asap, I don’t think you have any reason to worry.

That’s so much going on for that poor guy. He’s uncomfortable now, but trust me, if he does have Lyme, that definitely needs to be the priority. Untreated, and he will end up far worse than itchy skin.

 

Sometimes, too, they’ll continue to scratch from habit, even after the itch itself is gone.  I’m sure you’ll feel better once you get his allergy tests done, but take it one step at a time. You sound like wonderful doggy parents and it is nice to know that good people are willing to take in dog who requires so much care 🙂
