As most of you know, we had an awful time last year with sickness. All ten dogs had a bout with Cryptosperidium and Samba and Sky both lost their lives to the infection. This all started back in August and the first symptom of the disease is diarrhea. Most of the dogs had the diarrhea for a week or two, then it gradually went away. We never did get it under control with Samba and Sky.
Very soon after Samba and Sky died, Fudge and Noah got sick again and once again they had nasty diarrhea. After testing, we learned that the two boys had Corona Virus, a puppy disease that adult dogs don't usually get. We started treating them right away, but the diarrhea continued for weeks.
It's been eight months now that Rob and I have been dealing with doggy diarrhea, treating it with medicines, special diets and cleaning up after them. Last month when I talked with Dr B about it, I complained that Fudge and Noah seemed better but their stool was still soft. The doctor said we might have to settle for soft stool and we might not see perfect again.
