|Blood in the stool can be quite worrisome and quite serious. It could be lots of different things like Pancreatitis, Colitis, Gastroenteritis and more. The best thing to do is to withhold food for 24-48 hours. Give Powerade (white cherry kind is most readily accepted) as it helps with dehydration and keeps the electrolytes up, give that every 2 hours. If the dog still has diarrhea in 24-48 hours you need to find a way to get him to a vet, either Care Credit, borrow funds from friends/family, finding a humane/rescue organization that will help, getting a payday loan ETC, as it can be lifethreatening. It is really common to see pancreatitis in schnauzers..so I would really try to find a way to get him to a vet. He also should be on a bland diet, like boiled chicken & rice for the next 3-4 days AFTER you withhold food for 24-48 hours.|
