Should I be concerned about kittens with blood in their diarrhea?

My kittens are having bowel issues.

Your kitten may have something as treatable as worms or something as serious as a perforated intestine. Please check with a vet as soon as possible.

Bloody diarrhea is a significant concern for all household pets, but is especialy so for kittens and puppies. It can indicate a serious health condition that may even be contagious. Diarrhea of any kind can cause a kitten to rapidly dehydrate, which can be life threatening.

This could be something serious such as distemper or some sort of bowel blockage that is causing damage to his intestines. He needs to go to the vet ASAP.
