We just purchased a mini poodle 3 days ago and today she visited the vet. The vet called after the visit and said the dog had coccidia and would need medication for about a week. I looked up coccidia on the web and it says there is no cure, but the medicine stops the multipling and hopefully the dogs immune system will kill the virus. What if the dog can't fight the disease? Is this serious. the puppy is only 11 weeks old. Please let me know what can happen and what symtoms I should look for.
You do not know what you are talking about. There is a cure and it is probably the medication that your vet is going to prescribe. vetcare
