doctor wants sample of dd's poo but i'm not sure how much they need - she's going 20 times a day (yes, 20) so little and often so hard to get a lot...!

Just a little bit - sort of slightly bigger than rabbit poo size but smaller than hedgehog poo.

she's just done another one and it's going to hard to scrape that much off as they need two samples! bugger
btw I have never seen hedgehog poo!

I used to test the stuff in the micro lab, gentle otter has it right! Not the best career choice though.

rabbitt poo size will suffice!
