Nothing to be overly worried about, we have lived with them for many years and they haven't bumped us all off yet.

Interesting and only slightly related titbit: Did you know that during the initial stages of the great plague in London that they killed hundreds of street dogs and cats to try and control it? Of course it was the dogs and cats that were keeping the rats under control.....no dogs and cats meant more rats who were major carriers of the plague (or rather the flea that then passed it to humans)

Several gastrointestinal bacteris can be transmitted form dogs to humans, but all are rare. The most common is Campylobacter jejuni, which causes fever, headache, abdominal cramps, and watery to bloody diarrohea. The most common source of this bacterium is contaminated meat, especially chicken and unpasteurised nilk, but a few instances of this infection can be traced back to dogs with diarrhoea.
Most cases of Salmonella infection come from contaminated food, but here, too, a small number of cases can be traced back to pets. Salmonella causes nausea, vomiting, cramps and watery diarrohea.
If any one in your family has been diagnosed with either of these gastric infections, it is sensible to have your pet examined to see if it is a carrier.

What do you want to know about parvo?.

The cause of diarrhoea may be a disease that can be transmitted to humans,Such disease's include campylobacter and salmonellaboth caused by bactaria. Commonsense hygiene precautions can reduce the cause of any zoonotic diseases being passed to yourself.

says it can be passed from human to dog .....
Quote: bacterial overgrowth? The symptoms of "Dog Show Crud" are similar to parvo but if a fecal is run on there will be a high bacterial content and negative parvo test.
a couple of links... they all sort of say the same thing
