Unhappy Beamer has Coccidia

Ok, so.. turns out Mango had Giargia and Coccidia when we brought him home. So, Beamer was tested after we found out Mango had it. He was positive for Giargia, and was on meds, retest shows he no longer has it, but now is positive for Coccidia!!!

Ughh.. so back to the vet to get more meds... Could these things be why his appetite is not very good?

Oh well..

Ryan

Poor Beemer, I hope he gets better soon. I would think that could efffect his eating or lack of.

Peace, Love & Havanese

It is certainly possible Ryan. One of the symptoms of more severe Coccidia is loss of appetite... poor Beamer! I'm sure that he will be feeling better very soon after taking his meds, though!

I'm sorry to hear about Beamer. I'm sure that both giardia and coccidia can affect the appetite. Isn't there usually bad diarrhea with both illnesses?

Oh Ryan not fun. Both my boys had Giardia this summer and neither one of them had a loss of appetite (yes Jeanne bowls were still being thrown at me..) I did get tired of all the bum baths but once they got the meds everything was back to normal in 24 hrs.

Hope Beamer feels better soon, give him some extra belly rubs.

Beamer has not had any really bad poops... not to solid lately.. but definatly not soft and mushy or the runs..
Not sure if this is affecting his appetite or not.. we shall see... he had his first pill today..

Are there any known side effects from these pills?

Thanks!
Ryan

Ryan you are lucky you did not have the runs with the Giardia, sounds like you caught it early. I tell ya with 2 boys having the runs it was no fun somebody was always in the bath tub.
