    Default GSD puppy with diarrahea

    My new 10 week old GSD puppy has been diagnosed with giarddia so I'm picking up medication for her on Monday. I'm also wondering if changing her food could be helpful. She is on Diamond large breed puppy food from Tractor Supply. Any thoughts? She has a TREMENDOUS appetite!

    Unless your dog food was contaminated, it should not be related to the giarddia. They probably put her on metronidazole and maybe a three day wormer to knock it out. Should be fine.

    Try some canned pumpkin for her, not pumpkin pie filling but sugar free canned pumpkin. It can help with the runs. Until you get her meds however you will be dealing with slimy G poopies. Just make sure you keep her drinking lots of water and keep the pup hydrated. Good luck I'm sure the pup will be feeling better soon with the meds.
