E. Coli Scare-Something Everyone Should Read - 10/06/06 11:11 AM

With all the recent news about the spinach and e coli I think everyone should be more familiar with e coli and where it comes from. Also some of the effects it can have on the body including the urinary tract. For some reason with all the urinary problems that we have in sugar gliders you never hear e coli mentioned as a possible underlying cause. Could we be over looking something here? Check this out!

Thank you for that link Charlie, it is very useful information to have. It would appear that the first symptom of infection is diarrhea and blood is not always present but is in the severe cases. But like you said, that after affect on the kidneys is interesing and certainly something I have never associated with E. coli before worried
