My 5 month old akita has had diarrhea since we have had him. We took him to the vet and he tested positive for giardia.

Your dog's vet should have given him an antibiotic to treat this. It's an infection from a parasite borne in contaminated water and is very treatable.

He will be just fine. Keep on his medicine and follow all the instructions. Make sure this baby is getting clean water to drink so as he does not re infect himself.
