Spring Parasites

We are just closing out the second week of family illnesses. I think all the humans are back to normal, and perhaps W too, one of our Italian Greyhounds. After dealing with both children throwing up all over their bedding multiple times for weeks now, I had the pleasure of cleaning up after a dog who had bloody diarrhea all over MY bed. Just to mix it up a bit, I guess.

Trip to the vet revealed that a roundworm infestation was upsetting his system. Roundworm. Gross me out so many different MORE ways just than finding the ruined duvet. Now he and R are on meds (since R has likely picked it up from W), have a more sanitary routine, and I still have the willies.
