I hate to be a party pooper (bad pun, I know) but I do want families with sick kitties to keep in the back of their minds that some of the causes can effect humans as well. Giardia can definitely sicken humans as poor Candys has reminded us. Tritrichomonas foetus is thought to be an unlikely cause of diarrhea in humans, but it can be transmitted. On the brighter side, coccidiosis in cats does not affect humans. And we all know about toxoplasmosis from cats.

Let us all be diarrhea free!:BigSmile:

I thanked you for your post, but the whole idea of "Monsters inside me" is making me queazy. Good thing I didn't catch that show.

Yup I will probably skip it for a while, It was not really monsters just worms and parasites, it made my skin crawl.

Just the commercials for that show scare the heck outta me! I am naturally paranoid anyway, I don't need to watch that!

Eeewwww...:Badly2:....I was hoping no one would say "worms" ...:Badly:....I had a very bad experience with a cat who vomitted live ones.....:Badly:.<shudder shudder>

Instead I prefer to think of them as little animated monsters that can be danced away by Yo Gabba Gabba :Laugh:

VERY good point! And your DOGS can also pick up giardia from drinking from streams and water while outdoors- so it's something where, you might have a completely clean household and then Fido brings it in.
