Sick Furbabies

Well, Molly and Mason both have giardia (sp?). I suspect they got it from drinking the water in the swimming pools at the dog park. I know in the grand scheme of illnesses this isn't a big deal but it's my first go-round with it.


They're on horse-sized flagyl for 10 days.


I'm glad I followed my instincts and took in a poop sample. Neither of them have had good poops for a week or so and I saw mucus in both poops within 24 hours which, in the past, has meant worms so I took in a sample today.


Sometimes being an anal Annie mommy is a good thing! :)

Pythiosis killed a friend's lab. Again a public pond. By the time a diagnosis was made it was too late. Just in case your dogs don't bounce back from the giardia, consider testing for this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythiosis http://www.pythiosis.com/

Tomorrow is the Greyhound Rescue and Rehab annual picnic in Bethel, CT, and there is a nice pond in the park where it is held. I know some greyhounds who will KNOT be going in the pond!


Loving Kimba & Fred, missing Booker & Polly, first greyhounds, never forgotten.
