Dottie and Her Little Friends

This post may not be for the faint of heart...

You see Dottie's little friends are not so much friends as they are foes. Today she finishes her 6th or 7th treatment for Giardia in less than a year.

We are incredible frustrated.

Those suckers are kicking our butt and I'm fed up with it.

Dottie has been such a joy in our lives and this has been by far the greatest hurtle.

We wash all linens in the house.
We mop the floors and vacuum.
We wash her.
We feed her the medication.
We stopped taking her to the dog park.
We wipe her butt every time she goes to the bathroom.
We started feeding her vegetables, olive oil, yogurt, and immunity booster in hopes of bolstering her digestive tract.
We bleach all her toys and bowls.

So fingers crossed that this is the last time she needs to be treated for this. Otherwise I'm going to have to resort to the holistic treatments my boss recommended.

And I'm going to go crazy on the vets office.

But look at how cute she is! She's even turned into a VERY well behaved walker since I got her an Easy Walk harness. Magical.
