If the dog had parvo it might take months to for the villi and mucosal lining to re establish.
You have to provide digestive enzymes , pre bioitics and probiotics and possibly an extra dose of glutamine , an amino acid .
Digestive enzymes aid in the breakdown and absorption of nutrients . Chronic diarrhea is a result fo damaged intestinal cells which when in a normal state would secrete enzymes . This is a supportive plan . You have to give the intestines time to heal.
The dog has had giardia and has been treated for it. That means that both , the problem and the cause , have disrupted a viable , diverse, beneficial gut flora necessary for immune and digestive health.
You have to allow the colonization of a reset good intestinal microbiome. Prebioitis and probiotics.
If it is a particularly difficult case you may want to look in to probiotic suppositories .
I know of "yogurt" probiotic kits which will provide 49 strains of beneficial bacteria -- oral application , and the same
provider has suppositiories as well . You can't buy this yogurt ready made - you have to nuture the culture yourself.
Yogurt in the grocery can be disappointing , having limited , to few, to no , living bacterial cuture.
Probiotics inhibit the reproduction and adhesion of harmful bacteria.
Again you have to allow for time .
L-glutamine , glutamine is an amino acid , normally made by the body. A diet of high protein foods such as meat , fish, dairy , will provide glutamine - however in times of stress the body does not make as much as it needs so falls into a defficient state.
When you have intestinal inflammation, mucosal lining damage , chronic diarrhea , and the healing process where the mucosal lining is in repair , there is an increased need for glutamine. The glutamine is a fuel or energy source which the
mucosal cells need.
Ask your vet about a safe dosage for your pet .
