Good news, the toxin A & B test was negative. Although by this point the D had mostly subsided, and I have read that some of the toxin tests have low sensitivity/ low negative predictive value, so false negatives are common.

Either way, she has been improving, so I'm not going to stress.

Yup! She's had the usual winter bugs that go around, so not the happiest camper.

It is nice to know she's prob not even a carrier though. If a negative toxin test so suggests. I read a study where even the majority of dogs of CDI sufferers were carriers.
