Earlier in the week I posted about our pup making a buffet of goose poop, pond scum and cat food... despite doing OK on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday things took a turn for the worse and this morning I took a sample in and not surprisingly he has giardia.
Back on the rice and starting the meds, he already seems better...
Do y'all vaccinate your dogs for giardia? At what age? Does it work?
My kids get Giardia several times a year. I would not bother with the vaccine, 'cause it's effectiveness is questionable and it is made by Fort Dodge. I just keep a stock of the giardia meds (I use Flagyl, others use Panacur), and deal with it as it arises.
Yup... Ender has giardia too. We keep a stock of panacur and do the 7 days on, 7 days off, 5 days on again dosage... (in our second round... first time vet only gave us enough for 5 days... now I order off the internet!)
