    Thumbs down Daddy has Giardia ....

    Luckily we picked Daddy up from the rescue place on Thursday, and had already arranged a wellness check-up for him that day at 3.30pm. The stool tests have come back and he is positive for Giardia...

    So that means ALL our dogs have to be treated for it ... but at least it explains why his poops have been getting more and more loose. This morning it was actually diahorrea with some blood in it. If the test results hadn't come back we would have been calling the vets this afternoon!!

    Poor puppy!

    Poor Daddy! I hope he gets better soon.

    PS I love that you named him Daddy, I loved Caesar Milan's daddy so much that I would have considered naming a bully of mine that too!

    Yes hopefully it will go away quickly. It took 3-4 tries when ours had it, it was AWFUL. Hope you have some desitin for the butt in case of 'daiper rash', but maybe you caught it early enough that you won't go through the shooting poo 3 feet away and all that soreness like ours did. Ours got it from a puddle!

    @kazzy220, First I had to google what that even was ..I have never heard of it, secondly, since you have to treat all the other dogs for it, is it possible that YOU could get it also?? I hope this is not a stupid question, but I was just wondering.

    My husband brought the stuff back from the vets .... the two little ones who are the schnauzer/poodle mix and shih tzu/poodle mix have been given the liquid Panacur (de-wormer) because of their size. The other dogs, including Daddy, have been put on Metronidazole which is an antibiotic.

    @KMARINO I did some digging on the computer and it can be caught by humans. I sent my two kids around the house with disinfectant wipes to wipe every single door knob in the house!!

    @desertskybulldogs I haven't got any desitin but I'm hoping we've caught it in time. If not, thanks for the tip!!!

    I've just emailed the lady from the rescue place to warn her that her other rescue pups may have it, and it's fairly certain that Daddy's brother and sister will have it!!

    Oh I feel so sorry for Daddy. You know he doesn't understand and probably confused. @desertskybulldogs, I know what you mean about shooting poops, Bella got to the point she shot hers out about 3 feet, you had to be careful when you went out with her, no standing behind her! I did forget one time.....yuck! @kazzy220, I am so glad you have connections to the rest of his litter, you just never know what might develop and I hope the rescue keeps you all informed!' I really hope Daddy get better soon so you can enjoy your little man!

    Always with me
