Increase of giardia from thaw

One of our dogs developed diarrhea last week and she turned out to have giardia. Our vet said they were seeing tons of dogs with it, probably based on the thaw. Just wanted to let people know to be watching as the symptoms can take a while to show up and dogs can easily pick it up from dog parks (which is where we think she got it).

He gave her flagyl and a powder called Panacor and that has cleared it up quickly - she's much better and we'll be able to take her out to the park again in a few days (but we'll be watching what she tries to eat or drink).

Good luck and hope none of your labs get it!

Thanks for keeping us in the "know". This is exactly why this forum works, to spread information that can be really really important!!

If you have any other inforamtion regarding symptoms, treatment, etc. of either of these Giardia and Pancur, please keep posting them.
