    Thatís interesting. You should be able to ask all the questions you want. And he should know what parasites were tested as heís the o e that ordered it. That be a red flag to find a new vet.

    Jax has had giardia twice and both times he was treated with Panacur. Be sure to give a probiotic as well.

    That's exactly what we are using. Yesterday was his last treatment, symptoms have already improved a lot. Although our vet said it could still take longer for his stool to go back to solid. I find it odd your vet can't give you a straight answer on testing, how incredibly frustrating. And yes keep everything as clean as possible, pick up poo right away and dispose of. Sending best wishes your way for quick healing.

    Thanks. I will wash his bed and toys tomorrow. I did ask the vet if Giardia was found in his sample. He said that was not the case. But the animal hospital we went to 3 times, we met 3 different doctor. At least the last one didn’t push us buying the special Royal Canin food

    Hi, just wondering how is your puppy doing? My puppy coby was ok when he is on medicine, but the diarrhea came back right away after he finished his medicine. He was feeling much better when on medicine, way more active and sleep way less. We washed his bed, toys, clean the floor with bleach, gave him bath couple times. I feel really frustrated

    Poor baby. What exactly are you feeding now? I read through everything, forgive me if I missed it.

    Is his weight good? Not too thin?

    He is still a little bit thin, a little bit over than 11 lbs. I am feeding him raw food right now. Just like I said when he is on panacur, he is ok. The poop still a little bit soft, but at least in shape. When we stop the panacur, the diarrhea came back right away. The other thing I noticed is he slept more when he has diarrhea, I think he must have some internal infection cause that.

    I would add a good doggie probiotic - apparently Fortiflora has been shown to work in giardia cases in mice.
    Guidelines from College of Veterinarians say to add metronidazole to the panacur for cases that recur:

    Very good read, much appreciated. We did add some metronidazole with panacur for the treatment. Coby has probiotic every day as well.
