Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a UC Davis graduate, and currently, a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.
I am sorry to hear about this concern for Bobby.
Yes, a little concerned. It is possible to pick up an intestinal parasite from ingesting the feces of another animal. So, it would be advised to consult your vet for:
1. Medication to help correct illness quicker
2. A general broad-spectrum dewormer
3. In the next 1-2 weeks, doing a general fecal test.
Bring in a fresh poop sample to the veterinarian. Ideally, within a few hours. Request that it be sent “OUT” to the laboratory instead of being looked at in the hospital (more accurate that way). We are not interested in only worm eggs, but also checking for the very common microscopic bugs like giardia and coccidia. These types of parasites will not be cured with over-the-counter dewormers. Giardia can also be difficult to identify on routine fecal tests, so ask your vet if they always add a “giardia elisa” to the fecal test. Here is more detailed information about fecal testing:Fecal Testing
Not a serious issue, but worth follow up with your vet and fecal testing for sure. Most vets recommend doing a monthly dewormer anyway
I hope that information has been helpful.
