Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet for Answers ASAP
I have 2 other dogs who don't show signs of it. I have been in my home for 15 years. She just got her last parvo shot 3 weeks ago so only has been to 2 parks.
Her poop does have a shiny greasy look to it.
Could this be something else?
Should I call my vet and ask for Panacur? The vet I saw was visiting from Sac. I live just a few cities away from Davis.
I have read that Panacur is better. But also can be an issue with heartworms. Which she does not have and had been on prevention.
I have little kid and the bleaching and extra cleaning and even wiping her bum aftger a stool is getting old.
I should also mention she has been eating fine, playing like normal not signs of this but for the loose stools.
When I took her in they were clear and foamy and tech said they got a very small sample.
The first thing the vet said when she say her is she looked fine. But he thought maybe she had Giardia.
Then tech took her in the back. brought her back said they got a very small sample (which I believe since her last poop was right before I brought her in and it was clear and foamy).
Then came back 15 to 20 mins later telling me it Giardia. So no they didn't not send it out.
I even brought in 2 samples of her poop that were only at most an hour old they just looked at them and threw them out telling me it had to be fresh.
I have a puppy pkg with them that I have to pay the rest of the year. :( which is a bummer. Been to this office 6 times with her since I am doing the single shots to help keep HOD and Pano at bay. I have seen 3 different vets.
I been reading up on Giardia and what I read and what the vet was telling me just don't add up. All of her other fecal test for worms have been negative and she has had 4 wormings now.
I will see what I can do to get out of my pkg deal. And see a new vet. One of the vets in the office I really like maybe I can call and see if she is available. Maybe she can start her on the Panacur.
