Hello everyone! It's great to be on here and have access to so many experienced opinions on this breed. My family has had (spoiled) rottweilers before but Tiger is my first GS.
This little guy is from Oregon and has blown past all my expectations. His parents are Zeager and Delta. I would never have expected a little guy to have such a hunter's instinct, playful manner, intense stare and intelligence all so apparent after only 3 weeks. I can't wait to be his buddy as he grows up.
Hopefully he can get into a puppy kindergarten class soon, he's met lots of people but not that many dogs since his shots aren't done.
I hope to learn and contribute to these forums over the next few years.
his poop tested positive for giardia and it has been kind of soft. he's starting panacur tomorrow morning for 6 days and then getting his poop tested again.
are there any preventative meds for this? we're in seattle right now and it has been so rainy. keeping him away from puddles is impossible. he has a water bowl outside but he tastes the puddles out of interest. i'm always with him when he's outside and chase him away from puddles when he goes for them but he still gets a few sips in. I do the whole 'NO!' and sometimes use a squirt of water.
so back to preventative meds for giardia, are there any? online i read there's a vaccine would anyone recommend that?
