We have had our 3 and a half month old hav for 3 weeks now and it has been exhausting!!
Ever since we got him, he had been having diarrhea. The breeder said that it could be because of a new environment, stress, etc. A week after we got him, we took him to the vet for his second shot of vaccine and co-incidentally, earlier that morning, he had a few traces of blood in his last drops of poop (I know, tmi). He got his physical and everything was normal and the vet told us what the breeder had - new environment, new food, etc. She gave us probiotics, a dewormer and a couple of tins of medi-cal (gastro). 2 weeks later and the diarrhea continued. Took him to the vet yesterday with his stool and he got diagnosed with Giardia.
He is on Flagyl twice a day for 10 days. Does anyone have any tips on dealing with this? I am really worried from reading what I have (hard to get rid of, adverse effects of flagyl, and so on). Any advise would be appreciated.
