I have read that this doesn't always get worms
, and they spend some time in the lungs so it couldn't get those.
Thing is - coccidia and giardia can take a huge toll on the body - you'll want to go to the vet for proper medications for those, veterinarians aren't all evil
That goes for medications too. The problem w/giardia is the hard cyst stage the protects them that meds. cannot penetrate. DE, can cut through these and the body disposes
What worms spend time in the lungs - flukes?
Giardia can live in the dog w/o causing distress, it's when the dog gets out of balance they proliferate...such as medications imparing the immune system.
You know the body has an ability to recognize and deal with foreign organisms.
OP - Also note, when you make a diet change try adding a digestive enzymes, this will help transition AND will break down the food (hydrolize), so there is less stress on the liver and pancreas. Also reduces inflammation in the body and nutrients are better assimalated. The change in diet/diarrhea may be related to the fat.
My dog has had many bouts of diarrhea and hasn't had a drug since Aug. 2008
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
