    DefaultGiardia

    Roscoe tested positive for Giardia today. She'll be on medicine, I don't know what yet because they asked if I could come back in a couple of hours as the vet was in surgery and they weren't done with Roscoe yet.

    What do I need to expect?
    How serious is it? I know it's a zoonotic disease and that we need to pick up after her and make sure we wash our hands religiously... what else?

    Thanks! I hope so too. Actually, if you looked at her right now you'd think she was totally fine. She's been bouncing around the living room since we got home. It's like she walked in and caught sight of her toys and thought "OMG MY TOYS!!! WHEEEEE!!"
