Details

Toxoplasmosis is a zoonosis caused by the obligate intracellular parasite protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, which has worldwide distribution and infects most warm-blooded animals, including pets and man. The protozoan can be transmitted especially by ingestion of tissue cysts present in raw or undercooked meat, by contamination of food with oocysts from the feces of infected felids and by transplacental route. Dogs can be considered animal sentinels for T. gondii infection and as dogs can possibly serve as mechanical carriers of this parasite, there is a need for a continuing education program for canine toxoplasmosis control. This book focuses on specific reasons there should be continuing education programs for canine toxoplasmosis control. It also continues by discussing the control of visceral leishmaniasis; canine cryptosporidiosis; chagas disesae control; and the relevance of canine giardiasis on public health.
