Yeah we tried to make sure he doesn't drink out of puddles - Luc had giardia and we think that's how he got it. He's done his first round of meds, another round in two weeks, then recheck after that. Since it was a very mild infection I'm hoping it clears the first go-round.
Zisso has had ear issues too, ever since a groomer started cleaning his ears during grooming. Never noticed a problem before that. My vet prescribed the gentimycin and I have a tough time not losing them, but I haven't found it does much good, if any when I do use it. I was thinking about just using ear wipes to clean his ears so I can really get the gunk out...cotton swabs are a PITA for cleaning ears for me. The stuff for womens yeast infection sounds like a winner since the vets has always said his is a yeast infection.
