Because Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis can be fatal, contact your vet immediately. Patients do not usually present dehydration, but it occurs quickly, leading to low blood pressure, an elevated red blood cell count, shock, blood clotting problems, and kidney failure. Subcutaneous fluids are usually required to prevent dehydration.

Your vet may conduct a complete blood count (CBC), a biochemical profile, urinalysis, fecal examination, and collect bacterial cultures. Gastrointestinal bleeding is usually diagnosed by a process of elimination, since there are several other disorders that produce bloody vomiting and diarrhea. Treatment may involve hospitalization.
