Also make sure the dog feces does not contaminate a home pond or swimming pool, another pet's area, a stream or woods, etc. Make sure if you go for a walk if there is defecation it is both picked up and you pour a little bleach water on that area (try to avoid people's lawns!). Giardia is HIGHLY contagious across species and dwelling in waterways where it is then drank by other dogs, people, horses, etc. Read up on giardia. There is a bit of social responsibility when you or your pets have it not to spread it. Be sure if you or the family members start with diarrhea you explain to your doctor that giardia was present in the house.

Thank you!! Today is last dose of panacur and flagyl. Stool didn't show Giardia but my breeder said give her panacur 3 days. She's acting fine eating a bit better. Will check stool again

whats wrong? not hungry?

She ate 3/4 cup for dinner with a tiny bit Greek yogurt mixed in and I just gave her 1/2 cup snack. She ate all of it. So she's eaten 2 cups today total. She plays in morning with my other dogs so she gets her exercise In.

She's full of energy so I think i will do 1/2 cup 4 times a day. Will try 3feedings again tomm. If she doesn't finish will start that routine Monday. How is Zeus feeling??

how much does she eat at dinner, try to get her to do a little exercise before you feed her in the morning and only offer half cup and see if she eats any
