Giardia duodenalis is one of the most commonly misidentified (as false-positive or false-negative) parasites. It is found worldwide, infecting a variety of animals, including dogs, cats and humans. While most of infected dogs and cats are asymptomatic, young, debilitated, geriatric or immunocompromised animals are at increased risk of complications.
ESCCAP has produced a new fact sheet on Giardia infections in dogs and cats. It is available on the ESCCAP webpage in English, Hungarian and Polish language. Check them here.
