Q. He has heavy labored breathing, wont eat for 2days now and bloody stool with white stuff in it, very lethargic. 6 yrs old male Siberian Husky.

A. It sounds like your dog is very sick and I would recommend that you seek veterinary help for him immediately. Please call your vet and have him seen today. Labored breathing, lethargy and bloody stools can be from a number of ailments...all of which are serious and need medical attention.

A. This sounds like a pretty bad situation, bloody stools and labour breathing is usually something that needs to be treated right away by a vet. this could be a severe gastrointestinal infection, a foreign body ingestion or pancreatitis, among other things.

You should bring him to the vet today in order to start a supportive treatment and try to diagnose the problem.
