Giardia

Giardia - doesn't that sound like some type of VD? Well its not its an intestinal parasite and guess who has it. Yep Seamus - and now everyone in the house as to be treated for it. Humans and animals can get it from stagnate water, lord knows we have had so much rain here and the puddles all over he could have gotten it from anywhere. We all - yes all as in all the pets as well, have to be on meds because of my Dad. His immune system is weaker then the average persons since the transplant surgery. Oh the joys of my life at times. OH did I mention that Giardia has caused Seamus to have explosive diarrhea and any given moment. So I have been on poop patrol in the house, on the patio and in the yard for the last 24 hours. Its so yummy and smells ever so wonderful!!!

I made a $10.00 donation. Maybe I'm a huge softy, but I couldn't stop crying after reading the article and reading his adoption page... I can't even imagine what it was like for the poor thing being blind and not understanding what was happening or why.

Hey everyone,

anyone have any advice for puppies that cry at night? Our little guy gets up to go potty in the middle of the night, and he thinks it's playtime. He'll just whine and cry. Any tips on how to help this?
