Well.  This has certainly flumouxed our vets.  It is not anything placenta-wise they are 100% sure of that.  So they went down the line of a parasite.  After a while they have come back with the answer of  TAPEWORM!  :o
Bl%^^y hell!!  They are mighty big segments for a tapeworm, but apparently this is possible; tapeworms don't just have to be those small segments you tend to see in poo.
Its White drench all round this weekend for our lot.
