How to protect your dog during this weather pattern.
This wet weather is responsible for many dogs becoming ill. Dogs are spreading the giardiasis parasite. It is a parasite that can enter a dog’s intestinal tract and cause stomach problems along with diarrhea. With all the wet weather lately, dogs are spreading the bug through drinking from puddles and walking through other dogs bowel movements.
Dog owners in South End have reportedly seen an increase in giardia cases. The area has a high concentration of apartment complexes with dog parks. According to experts, stop the spread of the parasite by cleaning up after your pet. Also, avoid having your dog drink from puddles and any public dog bowl.
Hopefully, the weather will dry up soon.
