is it possible to have coccidia for 7 months?i have a terrier in england and
am at my wits end.last august he was kenneled on picking him up he had
"sloppy" poo which sumtimes has blood in it.each day it usualy start off
fairly normal then gets wors as day goes on.the vet diagnose colitis even tho
i said it started after kennels.he use to be able to eat anything he has lost
weight and suddenly acts his age 10.after 4 months the vet did a stool test
this was not from fresh poo i had to collect one smple a day,put in in a pot
then after 3 days take it to the vet.campybacta was diagnose and put on
antibiotics but no change.they are now going back down the colitis path coz
had another poo test and it was clear.they sad it cant be coccidias or
anything like that.i have contacted the kennels and his own dog had the same
thing which only cleared up after they were put on some sort of sulpha tablet
but he cant remember the name.I am from england.the vet wants my dog to take
high dose of steroids which i am not keen to do,i dont think they are really
listenin wen i say this only started after kennel visit.I am desperate any
advice or opinion would be extremly grateful.Like i said this has been going
on since last summer the kennels he visited is next to a river which often
floods .I know you are not a vet but please please reply thank you

thank you so much at least i know im not going mad!my vet told me it was not poss to have coccidia for this long so after only one clear (not fresh )stool sample has completly ruled it out.we go back to the vet later this week, think i will try and convince him to just treat for coccidia and see what happens.Thanks again
