    Poor Snoopy New Update #29 for anxiety issues

    Giardia infections (called Giardiasis) show no gender or breed predilection but are most common in young animals and in animals under close confinement, such as those in kennels, animal shelters and pet stores.

    Is being treated for the above. 2 doses of medication and his potty has done an 180

    I found the above information on the net. I asked the vet (I use couple in town) if he could of gotten it from being in the shelter for 2 months. He gave me answer that he drank out of some pond. I looked at him strangely and said he hasnt been near a pond. Guess he didnt want to point fingers at the shelter.


    Snoppy pulled a good one tonight. We went to KFC to pick up food to bring home. I crate him. He busted the door half down so he could escape and met us at the door when we came up basement stairs. LOL

    He HATES the crate. Used it for about 1 week at nighttime and fussed. So he sleeps with us at night in our bed and we have peace and quiet for 8 hrs.

    Giardia is pretty common and very easily treatable. It could have been something as simple as he drank from a puddle or other standing water that was contaminated with animal feces carrying giardia. He could have stepped in feces contaminated with giardia, licked his paws, and it's as simple as that.

    Just be sure to immediately dispose of any stool Snoopy has as it's very easily spread to others. Hope he's feeling better soon!

    I'm pretty sure that it came from the shelter. I do clean up stools constantly in the yard. We've had Coco for 2 1/2 ys and no problems with him potty wise.

    A previous co-worker of mine had this herself. It was horrible for her! She got it while she was camping. She was out sick for almost a month!

    I hope Snoopy feels better soon. It's no fun being sick.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I hope Snoopy feels much better soon. Poor boy.

    I never had any luck with using a crate for my dogs either. I just used baby
    gates until they were old enough to be trusted not to eat the furniture.

    What Kfamr said. My RB Binx used to get Giardia...and the vet told me it also happens in a weaker immune system. I was pretty sure it was from puddles and stuff in the yard. It really wasn't a big deal, other than the clean up part.

    Get better Snoopy.

    You would never know he is sick. His potty is getting better which they said would happen pretty quickly once he was on the medication.

    Lizbud: I crate trained Coco from a puppy (6 weeks) and he LOVES his crate. I think Snoopy has had some issues it didnt help he spent 2 months at the shelter.

    YAY YAY YAY!! I'm glad he is getting better!

    The shelter from which I adopted Cassie is no-cage. One of the cats on her floor was diagnosed with giardiasis the day I brought her home. I got a call the next day that I might have to start her on Flagyl. At that point she was still under the sofa and I was still worried that she'd never come out. Luckily she did not have giardiasis.

    I'm sorry to hear that he's sick but I'm so glad to hear that he's already much better. I was told that both Alani & Blaze and their other two siblings all had giardia when they were brought to the rescue group. They were found near the coast with their mother and they were all strays. They said the water was bad there so this most likely caused the giardia. Unfortunately no one was able to catch their mother or one of their siblings so they're still out there some where.

    That's great! I was just lending you what information I've learned about giardia in my job.
