    If they look fine now, just wait and see. They could be carriers- but its hard to know for sure. Try to keep their stress levels down, and I am [​IMG] that they stay well!!

    I dont know the answer to that- I'll have to look it up. My guess is that you cant really know with out doing a necropsy...
