    i still going with the giardia at the moment….i think the possibility is that the  7 – 9 day is cyst stage and the 16 – 18 day is the trophozoites stage

    the problem is that it doesnt show up in every stool test…so you need to get samples done daily until you have 3 clear and then do that again in line with the cycle times…either that or worm again…

    if not that then the infection could have kicked in the colitis that is proving hard to heal….

    will go check out the e coli cycles….

    #81670

    cysts can stick to the fur and skin of the animals. Make sure the dog is bathed and cleaned thoroughly with a mild shampoo

    so should i be bathing him regularly

    i will worm him again and see if that helps, although the vet did say that the fecal sample came back clear for worms but i will do it to be on the safe side.

    so is there anything i can do to help and support him until i hear from my insurance because i can not do the three day fecal samples without their backing

    also….e coli

    ‘Medications to avoid
    recovery rate from E. coli infections in 5 to 10 days without the need for medication. Antibiotics are not recommended. ‘

    has he had any urine problems? cysitis etc ?

    ‘Resistance to two or more of the antibiotics was found in 62% of the isolates. Conclusions from these data indicate that diseases caused by Salmonella and E. coli (such as diarrhea or urinary tract infections) should not be treated with clindamycin and ampicillin. These tests also point out the need to curb over-prescription of antibiotics to prevent selection of drug resistance.’

    #81673

    i dont think he has, hes been peeing normaly, normal colour

    ‘Medications to avoid
    recovery rate from E. coli infections in 5 to 10 days without the need for medication. Antibiotics are not recommended. ‘

    so does that mean that they vet should have let me continue with anti-bs once he knew it was e-coli ???
