Thanks for clarifying. Hopefully the vet will give me more info on his stool. Hopefully the analysis will be prompt because I don't want my little guy to be unhealthy. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, he loves to play etc. I'm not sure of symptoms of these parasites, but I'll do whatever it takes to him better if at all needed. He has gained about a pound a week since we got him and has definitely grown, I'm just unsure as a new owner as to average size. But doing some reading, it seems like he should be a little more brawlic.
