Thank you Dr. Williams! You know Mousie does have diarrhea alot, yet
I don't believe it would be considered "chronic", as she does have
normal poops the majority of the time. Now the challenge~ How to stop
her from drinking the water, she is not going to be happy with me,
she will probalby want to wash my mouth out with soap once I am done
with this challenge!! LOL
Thanks, Kris & the Kids
