Poor Bartleby. Poor you! :(

Did Bartleby test positive for giardia? I know it can be kind of hard to detect. I've also heard it can take as long as three weeks to get rid of the giardia. :( Your vet knows this, no doubt, but I figured it might be helpful for you to know.

His diarrhea can also be a result of a lot of other things, too, so don't be surprised if he shows up with something else.

Biscuit goes back into the vet this week for tests and to check his giardia. His diarrhea started to stop, things were looking good, and now it's returned. :(

Oddly, what I'm the most frightened about is that he may have developed that irritated bowel syndrome because that can be so hard to work with.

I guess my reasons for posting anything is just to tell you that diarrhea's a frustrating and tricky thing to try and figure out. The smartest thing you could have done is to put him in the doggie hospital especially because he's a puppy.

Good luck and keep us posted!
