I would *almost* bet your other dogs have Giardia, and just weren't emitting it in the fecal you sent in for testing. When I had a dog who tested positive, my vet get me enough stuff to treat everyone because it DOES spread so easily.

Hope treating for the issues solves everything for the poor pup!

I'll call when they open and ask to treat the others, too, then. I know it can be super contagious...I had my cats all break out with it once and that was total hell.

I went through it with a pup from a breeder when I was still breeding, we treated the whole house too, I forgot to mention that... Even the affected pup passed her first fecal, they caught it on the second
