Our girl greeted me with crazy kisses this morning at the emergency vet. She's doing so much better - was back to her old self, running around and checking things out.

She's at our regular vet for the day, for another day of fluids. Ozzy is also at the vet. All three of the dogs have the bacterial infection, and Ozzy needs to be under special observation due to his diabetes. Shrek is home with us since he is the least affected and not showing any serious signs. He'll undergo the antibiotic treatment as well, though.

But, it looks like all 3 wil be home with us tonight in much better shape. Sylphide has made an almost miraculous recovery. Thank You for your thoughts, your prayers, your well wishes.

Wonderful news! Thanks for the update! These little guys can go down so quickly when they get dehydrated from vomiting or diarrhea. It's amazing what IV fluids can do, huh?

If it is giardia, it comes from water, food or soil that is affected. My first Maltese, Rosebud, had it and I have no idea how she could have gotten it. We did go on walks a lot and she was always sniffing stuff. At that time (early 90s) there was not a good test for giardia. Now, from what I understand, it can be easily diagnosed. She was in the hospital for a couple days, as she could not keep food down. Luckily, giardia responds nicely to medicine.....

Here is a link with info: CDC - Giardia

BTW, humans can get it, also.
