Giardiasis

Giardiasis is caused by a parasite which is transmitted to dogs and cats through contact with infected faeces or with water, food, or soil that has been contaminated by infected faeces. It can cause diarrhoea, appetite loss, and vomiting, but pets can often be infected with Giardia without showing outward signs. Avoid high-risk environments and behaviours to reduce the risk of infection.
