  •  Oh, good news! (7+ / 0-)

    Dogs get colds, and recover easily. My first Lab, Lucy, had a cough for too long--so the Vet said to give her 'people' otc cough medicine. Use the kid dosage. And Giardia can be fixed with antibiotics & and massive hot dog infusions(just kidding! Watch her diet, as the Vet told you I'm sure!)

    A good food for, uh, firming up the giardia 'results' in dogs is cooked plain white rice mixed with cottage cheese. Tasty and will, uh, tighten things up! Did the Vet prescribe "Science Diet i/d Diet"? I always figured the i/d was for intestinal diet, and we fed it to all dogs at the Vet's with gastric distress. Comes in both dry & canned food. Good luck!

    Get well soon Haley!

    (ps-hugs for having a pup with the runs during a snow storm. She'll clear up soon, so make the most of your 30 trips outside today...)

    The better I know people, the more I like my dog.
