    Should have told the vet that after 9 bl..dy pages Stan wants to know what is g..d.mne wrong  ::) .
    Come on Stan, everytime this threat gets longer and your mamy posted i expect her to say ‘oh well, taken lots of time but simple thissyandthatty is wrong so no big deal, we change thisandthat and he better than ever’. Make it happen Stanman, come on boy  :-* .

    im sure the vet said that they were just anti-bs

    it is frustrating but hay ho theres nothing that can be done about it ;D

    whats the name of the tabs Kerrie?


    theyre called metronidazole


    They are AB’s, will do some research for you Kerry, but they are used to treat Giardia lamblia


    ahh didn’t recognise the name obviously not one of the common ones  🙂


    thanks izzie ;D


    Kerrie, save me reading pages back what was it he was treated for before?


    gardia and campy(something)




    no news as yet hopefully will hear something on monday


    Giardia can spread between infected dogs (via poop i think) and is commonly caught from drinking dirty water.  most likely to affect your dog badly if immune system already overburdended.  can spread to humans also via dogs poop.  treatment stan was given is 60-70% effective BUT has nasty side effects <> More recently Panacur has been used to successfully treat Giardia.  Kennels, runs and other suitable areas should be washed down with bleach / ammonia

    campylobacter can also spread to humans and between infected dogs via poop.  exposure to campy is thought to be higher in raw fed dogs BUT more likely to develop in a dog already under stress (unwell / pregnant / old / puppy / recovering) enthromycin is used to treat dogs + humans.  one problem is that once infected dogs can remain carriers thus re-infecting other dogs while showing no symptoms themselves.

    HTH 🙂


    mmmm thanks claire 🙂

    whats HTH stand for?

    i dont like the sound of the side effects of the meds stan was given, shouldnt i have been warned about them ??? makes me wonder if i should continue to use them :-\


    it is the most effective drug for giardia


    nacho had giardia as a pupster – he was about 5 months – i couldnt fix it without drugs.  He literally had water flushing out of his back end – it was a nightmare – had real emotional stuff going on after that with loose poos – cos I had been reinforcing his behaviour – all sorted now but I would use the drugs hun – it is nasty nasty nasty stuff giardia  :-\

    Nacho got it drinking pond water :-\
