    Hi Stacey,

    Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) ova actually can be found in a fecal sample, but it has to be a sedimentation (requires centrifugation) not a flotation like you can do at home . . . your vet could do it for you (I did it in my parasitology class) and here's what the eggs will look like (they're GINORMOUS compared to barber pole worm ova, etc.:

    today was the third day of being in the "good" category.

    her blood work came back normal too - so I do believe we are on the mend/recovered :)
