There are a couple of sulfur medications and other drugs that can kill the coccidia parasite in young puppies. But we like to suggest an alternative medication in place of drugs. And in this case, COTTAGE CHEESE is handy in keeping the parasite away! Cottage cheese result to a change in pH level of the intestines making it unfavorable for the coccidia parasite.
This works perfectly and poses no side effects as it is common with sulfur drugs. Young puppies weighing at most 10 pounds should be given half level spoonful (spoon used for coffee/cereal) twice every day, morning and evening. Doing this repeatedly for seven days will keep the parasite away. For older dogs weighing 15 to 20 pounds, provide them with a spoonful in the morning and evening together with meals. Doing this for ten days is enough to kill the parasite.
For dogs weighing 20 to 30 pounds, two spoonfuls twice a day for ten days is enough. But generally, any milk product in large amounts is not good for your dog as it can result to loose bowels. Give your dog the amounts stated above only. Any bowel looseness problem that comes forth after administering the cottage cheese as prescribed should go away in one or two days. Giving your canine buddy a spoonful of low sugar yogurt twice every week is good for digestion and keeps the intestines at balanced pH.
Always keep the sugar content for each serving to 10-12g. Ice cream is NOT ideal for your dogs either. It is excess sugar and an all milk product.
