Q. Dog had vomiting and diarrhea with lethargy and fever. Took him to vet and they diagnosed him with Giardia. Still not better. Help
A. Treat the Giardia as directed by your vet. You may have to repeat treatment. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the vomiting or diarrhea donâ€™t stop, recheck with your veterinarian.
