What are breeders recommendations for getting rid of giardia in cats?

Giardia is usually caused by the cat ingesting fecal matter. Keep the litter box and water dish clean. Don't let them drink water outside that you don't know for sure is clean. Giardia is easily cured with Panacur. See your vet.

There are a variety of treatments available, including fenbendazole, metronidazole, quinacrine hydrochloride and furazolidone. Not all are FDA approved, and each has its own varying side effects.

It is treated with metronidazole or some other similar medication your vet can prescribe. You should clean the cat's litter box really good with a bleach mixture to kill the germs. It might take several rounds worth of the medication to get rid of his icky disease. Don't give up and it should go away in time.
