More POO Question ... *GRAPHIC*

Postby jbodkin » Thu Oct 09, 2008 2:07 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Sorry but this seemed to be the best way to get to the point ... I took my BD fecal sample in today to get tested ... His Poo has always looked the same .... Sort of loose and very wet ... To the point where he will drag his back end for like 6-7 inches and leave a wet slick :puke:


I am trying to get an idea of what a "Normal" Poo looks like ... This is what his looks like most days and he only goes once a day ... Does it look ok or is it unhealthy looking ... sorry for the gross factor ... But I am sure you have all seen BD Poo before :roll:

Ok that's just YUCKY.... but you are right. Most of my dude's poo is more like a log however it had a poo like that today. It's been pooing alot lately so that may be why.

Vet just called me they found Hookworm and Giarda in his fecal sample ... He wants me to bring him in tomorrow to give him de-worming treatment ... The thing that is freaking me out is my 6 and 11 yr old handle him all the time ... We are really good about washing hands and using Germ-Killing Gel after handling him ... But now I afraid if this could have been passed to them. :shock:

Hello,

The stool looks pretty normal though. Too bad giardia & hookworms were found so definitely meds will be needed for those as they can be rough on their system if left untreated.
Make sure & keep him well hydrated while on the meds though.

there is only one thing I know of that can cross contaminate with humans and that is salmonella which is dealt with by thorough hand washing and the gel quite easily. It is difficult to get from a beardie anyway; I remember someone saying somewhere that you would have to lick their bum to get salmonella from a beardie, not sure quite how true that is though

Hookworm and Giarda can both be passed on to humans the same way as Sam.

that's nice

my vet said having hook worm (the pig variety apparently) is one of the best cures for IBS and autoimmune conditions - it focuses the body on a lesser pathogen than itself :D
