Veterinary diagnostics for cats

Toxoplasmosis

The pathogen of toxoplasmosis is the sporozoon Toxoplasma gondii. The only final hosts are the domestic cat and other felidae, in which the parasite lives in the intestine and forms oocysts in the sexual developmental stage. In general, infection occurs perorally by ingestion of water or food contaminated with oocysts (through the faeces of infected cats) or from meat products (the raw flesh of infected animals contains cysts with viable trophozoites).
