We are quaranteened

The Vet called today after Iggy had all his shots and poop check and heartworm and I deposited a fair amount of money. They take credit cards and payments, which is a little scary if you ask me. They are not shy about charging, so anyway, he got two shots in his hiney and the next day he went to the Groomer where it dawned on me, I pay three times more for his haircut than I pay?????? I got a call from the Vet and Iggy's Poop is showing Guardia???? This of course is a new one to me and being that he has not shown symptoms of the infection, I had no reason to even think he may be sick. How do you get Guardai....you get too close to infected poop and dogs love to sniff poop, they are even great at eating rabbit poop and that can be infected too.... They stress that dog owners pick up their poop to stop spreading this infection...We get a lot of sniffing poop on our walks....so no more daycare till he is better. Medicine two different ones two times a day and in two weeks we get another poop test. So one is injected with a syringe into the dogs mouth, sounds good, but I can show you it is all over my floor and my shirt and carpet....as I was pushing it into his mouth it ricochet out and over my shoulder and so on....the pill which is 3/4's of a pill...yeah, so I had to buy a pill cutter...that I roll up in lunch meat and it is gone....but this liquid will take some getting used to....Two weeks on no daycare....oh help me....
