    Default When will he get better?!?!?

    So Seamus is on his second batch of antibiotics for his giardia. He started last Thursday night on a powder that I give to him twice a day (usually wrapped in Turkey or something since it is really bitter tasting). He is also on a bland chicken and rice diet. His poos are still really runny/soft. I am really concerned that he isn't getting better! He is only pooing once or twice a day (which my vet said was normal since he is on chicken and rice) and he is eating, drinking and playing perfectly but I just want his poos to get back to normal! How long until it gets better?!?!

    Oh my, I wish I could tell you it's an easy fix, but it is not. My boy went through several rounds of medicines before he came back clear. It seemed like a couple months. He also lost a lot of weight. The powder stuff you are describing is what I think finally got rid of his. It took two full rounds of that stuff. As long as his poo is not shooting out like an explosion that is a good sign. Make sure you put diaper cream on the bum if it looks sore

    Thankfully he has not had any diarrhea (knock on wood). It is just runny/soft poo once or twice a day. His bum looks okay. I clean it with a baby wipe when necessary but its not red or irritated. I just wish he would get better!

    How about adding the pumpkin to his food...the canned..100% pumpkin. Not the pie filling. It should help a bit..even with everything else going on!

    No help here but wanted to offer to you support. You and adorable Seamus will get through this! Giardia is a toughie, no doubt, but you've got a good handle on it.

    Hang in there! Lily also went through 2 rounds of meds before it was gone.
    I know it somtimes feels like things never end.
