Sorry, I don’t know the answers but I didn’t want to let your post go unanswered πŸ™ 

As far as I know though, it’s just cats you have to worry about!! Hopefully this will bump the post and get some more responses for you πŸ™‚

@puddingpop: I asked my doctor about my dog at my very first OB visit, and she said the ONLY danger I had to worry about with the dog was him jumping on me and knocking me over.  Other than that, no health issues about poop or vomit, or anything.  That’s just cats πŸ™‚

I think you and your baby will be fine.  Hoping your lab feels better soon!!

Sometimes this can be a condition caused by a very common dog illness called coccidia. It can be passed to humans. So I would be careful. It could be very dangerous for you and the baby if the dog has something like this or a parasite.

@mwitter80: Coccidia sucks! A rescue/foster dog had it & now my kitties have it :(. However MOST strains of coccidia that dogs/cats get aren’t the type that affect humans. Some can thou. You get it from ingesting feces. Such as, dog steps on it, licks paw, gets sick. Or dog had it on his paw, walked in your house, then you drop a grape on the floor & use the 10 second rule & eat the grape that has it on there. So its kinda tricky to get it but still possible.

@canthugallcats: or dog licks it’s butt, dog licks your mouth or face, and then it somehow gets carried into your mouth.  Sounds crazy, but unfortunatley I learned this the hard way.

I agree, that it sounds like it could potentially be Cocccidia. My puppy had it about two months ago and she threw up about 6 times over night and had horrible horrible diarhhea. Our pup got it because she used to run around licking the dew off the grass and probably licked where some infected dog had previous pooped (gross).

I would try to avoid cleaning any of the mess to be safe until your vet can get your dog tested. Hopefully he’s okay and doesn’t have this though!
