Uh oh, something is definitely wrong. Have you noticed anything else different about your lab? You may want to consider getting the lab to the vet.

If it's really the squirts..........

STOP FEEDING ANYTHING for 24 hours, only water. And since we are supposed to do that at the first sign of the squirts, and I'm betting you kept feeding, there's a good chance your pup is on the way to a bout of colitis.

Which means a stop at the vet for meds or some more serious problems. Mucus in stool, blood, straining and the watery diarrhea need to be dealt with immediately.

The blood could be irritation from the diarrhea. Light red blood does not bother me to much. Dark blood does as it means it's coming from deeper in. It could be anything causing the diarrhea. I would fast her for 24 hours, then start with a bland diet.
