• My puppy was tested positive for slight Giardia and revived a 5 day medication. In 6 days we have a puppy swim party at our apartment building before they close the pool for the winter. Will it be okay for her to go swimming or should we skip out ?

    Hi Mara,
    I recommend that you call and talk to the veterinarian who was treating her about this question. The best answer will depend on the severity of the infection, the medication that was used, and your pet’s overall health. Your vet knows your pet and they can give you the best advice on this.
