When a dog has been bleeding out of his butt and then dies, there are a number of conditions he could have been suffering from. As some dog breeds are more prone to contracting certain diseases than others, a vet would be the best person to assess what happened to your dog based on his health history and breed. It is likely though that your dog could have been suffering from a condition known as hemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HGE).
HGE may be characterized by a sudden onset of diarrhea that may be very bloody, accompanied by vomiting. Your dog may seem very weak and lose his appetite. If the dog is not taken to a vet as soon as possible, there is a chance the disease could prove fatal.
This disease is quite common and can affect any breed of dog of any gender at any stage of their life. There are also cases that show some dogs that have previously contracted the disease and were treated, may well develop it again in the future. On the other hand, many other dogs may never experience it.
Also, the exact causes are not totally known so if an owner does see their dog exhibit any of the above-mentioned symptoms get him to a vet as soon as possible. Some theories suggest it could be caused by stress, diet, bacterial toxins in the body or even a reaction to a parasite in the intestines.

There are many reasons of bleeding from anus of dog. These are
  1. Bacterial, viral or fungal infection
  2. Parasites in GI tract
  3. cancer
  4. Constipation
  5. Swollen anal gland
  6. Eating of raw food
  7. Side effects of some medicines.
But all these can not cause sudden death. It will be good to contact a vet immediately to diagnose the cause and to avoid complications in remaining dogs.

9 out of 10 times it is parvo. The bleed in spurts for a day then they just keep beeding unil it is uncontrollable and bleed to death. I know I literally had this happen with my roomates dog yesterday and nope my girl is losing her appitite so I got her an appt in 5 hrs I hope she makes it. If it is parvo the dog needs to go to a vet immedately. P.s. To the one hatin on the breeder. A little fyi parvo is extremly contagious for dogs so if one has it eventually they all will if not treated for it by a vet. It has nothing to do with bad genes.

It really is hard to say what made the pup die, because there are so many things that could have caused this, an illness like cancer, or a tumor, maybe he was even hit by something that caused internal damage. I am sorry that you lost him.

I think your dog had a virus called parvo. If you have other dogs you will need to clean all the places your dog was so that your other dogs don't get it.. You will need to use bleach to do the cleaning.

Possibly the parvo virus. Was the dog vaccinated? If not then theres a pretty strong chance thats what it was

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. There are any number of things that could have caused your dog's death. There is parvo, the dog is usually always very tired, will have diarrhea and bleeding from its rectal area. It could have had parasites in the stomach or a intestinal infection or a tear in the stomach lining and that would cause it to bleed out of the rectum.

The same thing happened to my girl dog too, last night! She died and had a high level of blood coming out of her butt, before and after she died!

It is your duty to look over your dog on a daily basis. Watch her eating, drinking, sleeping, and defecating habits, as well as her overall behaviour. Bleeding "out there but" doesn't say anything. It could have been coming from the anus, indicating an intestinal issue of parasites or digestive problems. It could have been coming from the vaginal opening, which may have been caused by a uterine cancer, tumor, otherwise infection, or a miscarriage. It may have been coming from a lesion in the skin. Either way, the SIGNS would be there for YOU to notice. If a dog dies from something like this, they WERE showing definite symptoms, you simply never noticed them.

If a vet is too expensive, you shouldn't have a dog. Take care of your animals. And as for the breeder, please stop breeding . Evidently, your dogs are not healthy, and they will not be passing on good genes. This is so sad. If only the animal protection people could act on it.
