I may have just exposed my 6 month old Aussie to Giardia. I took her for the first time to a dog park. It had large swampy areas and large areas of standing water (Florida, rainy season). The dogs spent a lot of time playing in that water. After I returned home I was reading about dog parks and came across many references to the danger of picking up giardia, particularly in standing water. So now I feel horrible about potentially exposing her to that. Any ideas from anyone for preventative measures in case she has ingested giardia? I have just read about giving digestive enzymes as a treatment. It sounds like a safe thing to do.
