THERE is a wide array of protozoal organisms which cause various diseases in dogs and cats, ranging from the exotic to the dangerous. With the large number of animals now travelling into and out of the UK under the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), practitioners are more likely to encounter non-endemic protozoal infections; such diseases can cause severe or fatal disease in some cases. This article reviews the current understanding of the protozoa affecting dogs and cats and describes an approach to diagnosis and control. The prevention and treatment of helminth infections was discussed in an earlier article (Fisher 2001).
