Let's Dance!

We've been patiently waiting for over a week to get results from the university and finally the call came. Dr B called me with the results and they're good!
The boys do NOT have cryptosperidium or salmonella.  In fact the results were negative for all but one of the things they tested for. They were positive for corona virus. This was surprising because corona is usually a puppy disease and the boys were vaccinated as young pups. When older dogs get it, it generally runs it's course and doesn't present much of a problem.
Dr B is a little perplexed as to why Noah and Fudge are so sick, but it could be due to their recent bouts of crypto and can also have something to do with stress. All the dogs were stressed by Samba and Sky's illness and eventual deaths.
We're staying on top of this with special diet and probiotics. If it hangs on much longer, we'll look for other ways to fight it. But we are so relieved that the boys aren't facing a death sentence, that we're doing a happy dance and might even break out a bottle of champagne. Thanks for all those crossed paws, you are the greatest.
