My 5 month old shepherd mix has giardia

My dog has giardia but no diarrhea.... I live in a 2 family home and the dog down stairs (my brother in laws) is three years old and a carrier of giardia. When he was 1 he was treated for the first time and consecutively took 6 antibiotics, nothing did the trick thus deeming him a carrier. We got our puppy 3months ago he was 2months old, on his second puppy visit to the vet he tested positive for giardia and has finished his antibiotics.... his next stool sample came back positive again of course and the vet now wants to try a new antibiotic. Here is my problem, these two dogs share a yard, and play together every day. I don't for see my dog getting rid of his parasite because of the situatio and don't really know what to do...
