Poop results

Following on from my previous update on Bezukhov & his Missing Poop, the results are now in.

Bezukhov & the chewy toy

There were:

  • No parasites or worm eggs present,
  • No Campylobacter,
  • No Salmonella, and
  • No Chlamydia. However, Chlamydia psittaci is apparently notoriously difficult to isolate hence collecting poop over several days to try to catch it, so the negative result could therefore be inaccurate if it was not shed during those collection days.

We agreed to continue monitoring Bezukhov & hope that the medication he previously had & the continued regular intake of Calcivet will keep his ‘episodes’ at bay.
