Curing Giardia in Dogs

Damage done by giardia in dogs has long range effects yet there is an exclusive natural approach that has worked for several years for both the protozoa and healing the gut.

Worse than a rainy day, giardia in dogs is a monster. Just when you think it's gone, it reappears. Often with a vengeance.

To understand how this approach not only rids the body of giardia but improves dog health overall, let's go over a few facts first:

  • Giardia is painful
  • Giardia is detrimental to dog health
  • Giardia can have lasting side effects
  • Giardia cannot be killed with antibiotics
  • Giardia cannot be killed by grapefruit seed extract

What is Giardia and its Symptoms?

A one celled protozoa which is ingested in the cyst stage and travels to the intestines where it literally attaches itself, feeds and reproduces.

It's existence in the gut causes pain and inflammation. The symptoms of giardia are varying degrees of dog diarrhea, often watery with mucus and blood.

Both mucus and blood are telltale signs of damage to the bowel. If not addressed properly, this can lead to IBS, IBD and Leaky Gut which then makes it impossible for your dog to gain any nutrition from his or her food because it's going out faster than any can be absorbed. The lack of nutrition then sets the body up for further disease.

The Problem With Other  Giardia Protocols

  • They do not address healing the gut damage.
  • Some are antibiotic based. Antibiotics kill ALL bacteria. Since your dog has far more good bacteria than bad, killing it all is bad for dog health and antibiotics cannot kill a protozoa !!!
  • Some are chemical insecticides. All poisons have negative side effects.
  • My clients report temporary improvement using their veterinarian's protocol of Metronidazole (Flagyl). Many of them used this protocol 3 or 4 times before they found me.

This is Jack, a dear friend's dog who had undiagnosed giardia for years and couldn't gain weight. This picture was taken when he was 19 years old and still giardia free.

What worked for me and my clients?

A Natural Approach to
Cure Giardia in Dogs

Okay, now we're in my territory. I love herbs and natural healing. And I only want herbs I know are tested for purity and potency so I can get consistent results.AND I want those that work together, thus creating something special.

Note: The first one is NOT an herb but a patented product that is harmless to good bacteria and leaves the body completely withing 12 hours with zero side effects.

Liquid Silver Shield  - a powerful natural anti-pathogen which also reduces inflammation. Taken on an empty stomach.

Black Walnut - natural anti-parasitic used internally to help get rid of many kinds of worms, amoebas, protozoa and fungus.

Echinacea & Goldenseal - antimicrobial and infection fighting herbs for the gastrointestinal tract 

Intestinal Soothe & Build  This is especially important because it will soothe the damaged intestinal wall and encourage new cell growth for faster recovery.

Liver Cleanse  is a blend of herbs and nutrients specially formulated to nourish and protect the liver to support its natural cleansing functions. (Note: the liver performs 500 daily functions & both Metronidazole (Flagyl) & Fenbendazole (Panacur) which may be prescribed with it can potentially cause liver damage.

NutriBiome Bacillus Coagulans Probiotics  -  An excellent way to help reset the intestinal  microbes. Most probiotics used when diarrhea is present, tend to create more diarrhea. This heat tolerant strain is perfect for giardia in dogs because it helps stop the diarrhea.

The difference between my protocol and others is:

  •  I know it works.
  • I truly want to help you.
  •  You will receive followup emails and you can reach me with questions and concerns.

Please understand this takes time and it is solely up to YOU whether it works or not.

Is Giardia in Dogs Contagious?

YES!  Not only can it spread quickly between dogs, but  it's transferable to humans.Cats can also become infected but it doesn't happen often.

I learned first hand just how easily a dog can become infected - because my Lulu got it.  Here's how easy it is to contract giardia along with an important tip when dealing with it.

Need more information? I adore you and I am happy to oblige. Sadly most people read as little as possible but I am a thorough kind of gal so here is more. You will also find a link for getting a discount at the end of this page because YOU truly want to understand.

Diagnosing Giardia in Dogs

It's hard to diagnose giardia in dogs for a couple reasons. Since the symptoms of giardia are not unique and aren't necessarily constant, a dog can have it for years without discovery. How can that be?

Here are the symptoms:

  •  recurring diarrhea, mild to severe
  •  explosive diarrhea
  • soft, light colored, greasy looking stools
  •  gassy
  •  weight loss
  •  loss of appetite
  • eating, but still losing weight
  • dehydration
  • listlessness and fatigue
  • mucus in the stool
  • nausea and vomiting

What's even more frustrating is the testing may often come back negative when it shouldn't. Since the protozoa are not expelled through the feces  on a constant basis so you must have at least 3 negative test results in a row spaced 5 weeks apart.

At the bottom of this page I have pictures of giardia diarrhea and explain how damaging it can be.

See the legs on the giardia? They help them swim around and attach themselves to the intestines. Youch!

Medical Giardia Treatment

The most commonly used drug is Metronidazole (Flagyl). says it's an antibiotic yet Wikipedia says its an antibiotic/antiprotozoa. All I know is that giardia is not bacteria, it's a protozoa. I also believe if it worked I wouldn't be helping so many people who have put their dog through the Flagyl treatment two, three or four times already.

And then there are the side effects of the drug. Some of them are scary.

I took these from the human side effects list because how would we know if our dogs were experiencing some of these things? Of course your dog may not show signs of side effects but personally I won't give my dogs anything that might cause seizures. Especially when I know natural healing methods to cure giardia in dogs without any side effects (unless you want to count improved health.)

  • Agitation
  • back pain
  • blindness
  • blurred vision
  • confusion
  • convulsions
  • depression
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • eye pain
  • fever
  • hallucinations
  • headache
  • lack of coordination
  • nausea
  • seizures
  • shakiness & unsteady walk
  • vomiting

Note that the drugs used for giardia do nothing to aid the damaged tissue in the gut.

If You've Had Trouble Curing Giardia

Nearly all of the people I've helped cure their dog of Giardia have given the drug protocol more than once to their dog before they contacted me.

The time range of infection has ranged from 2 months to 2 years before they used this natural approach and finally won the battle. Just remember, curing your dog of giardia can be done with patience and persistence.

The longer your dog has had it, the longer it will take to get rid of it.

Analyzing Dog Diarrhea from Giardia

Since giardia in dogs made a visit to my house, I took pictures of what I came home to so I could explain what it means. Ready?  It's ugly and scary.  These are all from the same episode.  As you can see it got progressively worse as her bowels emptied.

I call this pudding diarrhea. The shine is from mucus which tells us there is inflammation in the gut. With that swelling, nutrients cannot be absorbed.

You can clearly see the mucus and the blood showing I have a very sick dog who will get sicker if I continue to feed her without a fast and some herbs to help.

This last little bit  tells me she strained to go at the end even though she was on empty.   The bright red blood in the mucus means it happened near the exit point.

Meaning the blood is from the bowel and not the intestine. I have my work cut out for me.

Update: My dog Lulu is all better. She responded so well to the Giardia protocol, all the symptoms were gone within five days. But I knew there were still critters in there so I kept up the protocol  3 months. I needed to be absolutely sure they were ALL gone since just one can repopulate the entire gut.
