What is Giardia and how do I get rid of it...

Giardia are protozoa (one-celled organisms) that live in the small intestine of dogs and cats. Giardia are found throughout the United States and in many other parts of the world. Infection with Giardia is called 'giardiasis.'

There are many things we do not know about this parasite. Experts do not agree on how many species of Giardia there are and which ones affect which animals. Veterinarians do not even agree on how common Giardia infections are and when they should be treated. Generally, it is believed that infection with Giardia is common but disease is rare.

When I have had to deal with a case of Giardia what worked best was the following:

Get GSE (grape fruit seed extract - liquid)
And probiotics - Natren CanineDophilus

1)  Grapefruit seed extract - Liquid 1 -2 drops in a capsule 3 to 4 x's a day until it looks like it's gone
2)  Probiotics 1 daily on an empty stomach with at least 2 hours on either side to digest

This little trick will boost it's immune system while it's killing off those little parasites.
