I just switched to 2 meals a day for my 13 week old. She's not a big eater her schedule was ridiculous lol. So it's breakfast 8 am dinner 5 and another half cup around 8-9pm. I just couldn't keep a schedule because if she skipped a meal like lunch I would try again around 2pm barely ate. If she skips breakfast do I let her hold out til dinner?? Maybe do training with her food around lunch?

Seems to me what I remember about Giardia is there's a green tint to the stool. It's a waterborne contaminant, it's not all that serious to where you need to rush the dog to the vet. They have to send out a stool sample and it needs to be fresh. I think that Coccidia is most definitely more severe than giardia but your dog would be on the thin side.
Most likely if the dog is cutting new teeth it could be causing pain - try giving the dog some ice cubes and see if that helps sooth the pain - feel around inside the mouth on the gums, you will be able to feel new teeth coming in.
When a dog is not eating it's absolutely crucial that there's always freshwater there for him! This too shall pass.

We'll bring a stool sample to the Vet on Saturday. Do you think that's too long to wait?

If he eats cat food (as my dog does) then it's probably that he doesn't like his kibble. You can keep trying until you find something he likes or go to raw. Whatever works for you.
Also, skipping a meal or two will make him eat.

Your dog thinks he's eating at: Burger King and is getting it. "His Way."
Pretty soon it will be: Halibut from Alaska, Kobe Beef and Free Range Chicken.
Your food bill with be 8 times the current amount if you give in now. If he has Giardia, he needs medical attention..
