Course Description

Intestinal protozoa, including Giardia, coccidia, Cryptosporidium, and Tritrichomonas, are some of the most commonly identified parasites in dogs and cats. Although many protozoal infections appear non-pathogenic, others can cause frustratingly persistent clinical disease. This webinar will address some of the more confusing questions about managing intestinal protozoa in pets, including the best diagnostic tests in a given clinical situation; how intestinal protozoa should be treated; what to do if the infections persist in spite of treatment; and whether pets with protozoa pose an infection risk to other pets or to people.
