Like nothing ever happened. He just finished his last med this morning. The vet is going to run another fecal in a couple of days. He's getting his hernia surgery right now...

I am so Thankful they have a treatment regiment that will help him.
I had some puppies that suffered this. We were put on a special canned science diet, a digestive supplement and anti-biotics. I also made the chicken broth/coconut milk jello to help with hydration.
And cleaned, cleaned and cleaned.
I should have had stock in paper towels. LOL.
I hope for a speedy and permanent recovery for you both.

He's being treated. His energy level is back up. I am so upset. I have no faith in our vet(s) anymore. Giardia? REALLY?!!
He's perked up quite a bit and showing signs of the diaharrea letting up but still like mud pie. Still not drinking much water. He's just really chill. But then has periods of the zoomies and then exhausted afterward. I'm trying to keep him quiet but geez. He's a big puppy. Almost impossible. He is feeling better though because his facial expressions aren't like this anymore:
More like the happy puppy I'm used to.
So that's good. He's been sleeping an awful lot though.
I called a different local vet and got some reviews on them off of a local Facebook group so we shall see.

Sometimes it doesn't show up in the fecals, but still.
At least it's not something more serious, but I had a nightmare time with giardia too.
Clean EVERYTHING. The dog, bedding, toys water, bowls. Get a steam mop so you can sanitize your floors.
Poor guy, hope the meds get him back on track ASAP!

Please call the police and ask where they take their K9s.
This is totally unacceptable.
Giardia should have been the first thing they checked for!
