About Giardia in Dogs

The goal of the Giardia in Dogs site is to provide up to date, concise and accurate information about this parasitic dog disease. We believe that the key to long dog health are educated pet parents. Our best day is when you are able to have an informed and productive conversation with a local Veterinarian that is in the best position to understand the unique health needs of your specific pet.

We employ professional researchers, editors and a veterinary consultant to ensure that information provided is easy to understand and accurate. It is our practice to indicate those steps that you can take at home, as well as therapies that require a prescription. All material is referenced to the source so that readers can do their own exploration of any subject.

In the case of a suspected medical emergency please contact your local emergency medical center. An emergency includes any sudden changes in your dog’s behavior, visible neurological or respiratory problems, or a disease or illness that lasts longer than a day.  When in doubt, call or visit the Veterinarian.
