Thurs Update: 100% liquid stool and he's asking to go out more often... going to see the vet today... giardia has never made him have 100% loose stool sooo... now I'm worried.
Wed Update:* Still pure liquid though he's acting normally.* Will start him on giardia meds tonight when I can monitor him to see if they make him throw up.* *sigh*
Giardia... Felicia, from what I've read it's everywhere but most often found in really any water.. lakes, rivers, streams, etc.
Yes he has been swimming for the past month in the lake.* Quite honestly it was the only way to exercise him when it was so hot here over the past couple of weeks without making him pant like a maniac within 10 minutes.* He's been going to the same beach but this past weekend the lake was very choppy... perhaps that means more "stuff" was stirred up, I don't know.*
Eric just called... got home and Ender had diarhea twice in his crate during the day... just went outside and had another liquidy stool.*
Anyone want to start placing bets on Giardia flare up?
No change at all in his diet lately... no weird treats... not even a marrow bone... got his kong per usuall today.*
Well, that sucks!
I bet it is Giardia!
Has he been under stress lately? Anything new going on?

Poor Ender Hope he is feeling better soon.
Not really... I just got done being sick... Eric IS sick... other than that... nope.Originally Posted by labby
Oh, Ender. Feel better soon, buddy!
Toby and Chamois say: GO STEELERS!
He might have picked up that both of you weren't feeling well and it stressed him out. Who knows.

Uh, not to sound entirely stupid (just partially!! LOL), what causes giardia?
