Hi there


If she has seen a 'bug' or parasite, she will need to get her stool tested to see exactly what type of parasite she has. This is called Ova and Parasite stool studies.


Best thing to do is let her Dr know this and let him/her order the study...the results will come back and let you know what is found. Based on the findings, will determine what treatment is necessary if any.
