She had gone to the vet and then were on antibiotics (which we continued for like 5 days or whatever). Poops got slightly better, but gone soft again. We had the aforementioned poop analyzed and test came back today stating she has giardia (parasite infection of the digestive track). Apparently, this particular bacteria infects places that have been in contact with contaminated poop for months. The antibiotics likely cured her but then she recaught it by pooping at the same place as previous infected stools had been. Basically, my yard is basically off limits until next spring as you can’t disinfect grass/earth. This will make house training interesting.
Sometimes it's better to end things quickly before they spin out of control.
