While taking Blaze the wonder dog for a walk about 4 weeks ago he stopped to drink out of his favorite place. It is a small trout stream. When I bent over and asked him was that good, he jumped up and gave me a mouth full of wet dog face. :p About 6 days later I got the stomach flu. After it didn't go away for 3 weeks I went to the doctor. Test revealed giardia. I need a way to steripen my dog. :biggrin:

A word of warning -- don't imbibe while taking Metronidazole (Flagyl) or Tinidazole (Tindamax and Fasigyn) as both act kind of like Antabuse - you will become violent ill if you drink while taking them.

Thanks Dino,
Good advice Metronidazole is exactly what I am taking.

Hey SheepDog, sorry to hear about your bout with giardia. I've had it, nasty stuff and you only have to ingest one drop of infected water to get fouled up. But, with a good course of antibiotics and you'll be as good as new, the down side is now that you've had it you're more likely get it again. Or that's what I was told by my doctor anyway.

SheepDog,

Would you mind sending me a bottle (or case) of that water? I've been trying to find a good Xmas gift for my X. Sounds like one of those gifts that keeps on giving.

Savor Regularity!
