My nine week old maltipoo puppy was diagnosed on Wednesday

My nine week old maltipoo puppy was diagnosed on Wednesday with Giardia. She weighed 1 pound 14 ounces. She was prescribed 0.3 ml orally twice a day with MetronidZole Susp for 7 days. Can this cause a distended belly or am I just seeing a normal puppy belly? She is eating and drinking fine and I do not see the diahrea anymore.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: LuluJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lulu?Customer: She is acting fine, she runs around. I only got her on Sunday afternoon. According to the paperwork that came with her it looks like the owner wormed her with one dose of Nemex on 9-12 and gave her a Parvo vaccine on 9-12. Because she had a Parvo vaccine the vet did not give her anymore vaccines at this time because he said the vaccines had Parvo vaccine in them and he did not want to make her sick. He wanted to hold off on any vaccines until Oct. 3rd. He did deworm her again.

I have a 5yo boxer. Suddenly will not eat; nose tongue and ears are cold to touch. Laying on the couch just wants to cuddle. Gums and tongue have good color. Last BM was 10pm last night and of normal consistency. Ate last night with no issues. Did not even greet us at the door when we came home for lunch which is extremely unusual. Live in a remote fly in community with no veterinary access.
