Beaver Fever

Except for six year olds, nobody really likes to talk about poop. And nobody likes collecting stool samples and putting them in little baggies to take to the vet. But after a couple of weeks of on again, off again diarrhea with the dogs, indeed, it's time to get a professional opinion. At this point, my unprofessional opinion leans towards Giardia, or Beaver Fever. I just like saying 'Beaver Fever'. All that swimming in the suspect waters of Lake Ontario may have finally caught up with us. Luckily we were on land last night which made this morning's mess a bit easier to clean up. Cleaning poop off the ceramic tiles of a bathroom floor is considerably easier than washing load after load of soiled bedding in the marina laundry room like last week. Results should be in tomorrow.
