Giardia is a severe intestinal "dysentery" disease that is transmitted through exposure to waste from other pets or by drinking contaminated water.
The disease is very common and affects people too. Family members can become ill from their pets!
Fortunately, there is a safe and effective vaccine now available to help protect your dog. We are investigating the need for the vaccine in cats.
A series of 2 vaccines is now recommended. Annual boosters are best.
