Giardia - should I be worried about my other dogs?

Post by OH45039 on Fri Apr 17, 2015 2:41 pm

My vet called & my foster has a mild case of Giardia. They say it's not necessary to treat. Should I be concerned about it passing to my 2 resident dogs?

Are your other dogs generally healthy? If so, I wouldn't worry too much- pick up the poops conscientiously, though.

Surprised the vet doesn't want to treat-- metronidazole has worked pretty well for my fosters.

Is the pup symptomatic?

Pup is jot symptomatic - had 2nd deworming pill this week, which may be why they opted not to treat. Thanks for the feedback
