Tom was brought in as a malnourished stray suffering from diarrhoea. Faecal tests showed him to have Giardiasis which is an infection of the small intestine caused by a microscopic protozoal organism. Therapy with metronidazole as well as kaolin, a natural binding agent to firm up the faeces, pectin, to soothe the gut lining, probiotics to help keep the level of beneficial bacteria high and to exclude pathogenic species, and lastly prebiotics to feed and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria resolved the disease and he is now fighting fit.
