GIARDIA IN DOGS

IF YOUR DOG HAS GIARDIA - CAREFULLY CONSIDER MY ADVICE

Giardia is the most common parasitical disease in the US. I have seen estimates saying that 10% of the World's population is chronically infected with Giardia. Giardia is extremely contagious and can infect dogs as well as humans.

In this article I am not going to get into the details on Giardia that you can easily read on Wikipedia. Instead, I am going to focus on how to cure your dog suffering with Giardia.


Below I tell the story of how I dealt with an outbreak of Giardia in my dogs. My advice on Giardia will work for your too.

SOME VETS WILL FAIL TO DIAGNOSE GIARDIA IN DOGS

It all began when I received two new puppies that I noted had a cough. After a couple of days of coughing, I took them to the vet and he said they had kennel cough and prescribed treatment. When the treatment didn't work I took the dogs to another Vet. He said the same as the first vet. About that time, the two new puppies started having diarrhea. Within a few days all my dogs had diarrhea. Took the puppies back to both vets along with stool samples.

Both vets were at a loss as the samples came back negative. Both vets simply said, it must be something they ate, give them Pepto-Bismol and they will be fine.


EVEN WITH STOOL SAMPLES IT IS DIFFICULT TO DETECT GIARDIA

The next day I called a new vet, told him what was going on and I was shocked when he said he wanted stool samples from 10 dogs! I was relieved when he said leave the dogs in their kennels and just bring me the samples!

THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE WITH GIARDIA

If your dog has never had Giardia, you have no idea how bad diarrhea can be! If your dog has had giardia then you know why you don't want to take them for a drive anywhere!

I delivered the samples and a few hours later he called informing me that my dogs had giardia and hookworms. I asked him how to treat the dogs for both giardia and hookworms and he said "frankly I don't know".

He indicated he knew how to treat one dog for giardia and hookworms, but with a kennel full of dogs, I would have my work cut out ridding my dogs of giardia and hookworms as the area had been contaminated with both giardia and hookworms, and the dogs would keep re-infecting each other.

GIARDIA IN DOGS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO TREAT

A few hours later the Vet called me back and said that he had contacted Michigan State University which is one of the World leading agricultural collages and he had an information package for me. After reading all of it several times, I knew all there was to know on how to rid a herd of cattle of giardia, but still had no clue on how to treat giardia in dogs.

I decided that if I were to rid my dogs of giardia and hookworms, I needed even more information. Thanks to the power of the internet, I was able over the course of three days of research determine the best approach for treating dogs with giardia and hookworms.
