(University of Veterinary Medicine -- Vienna) Diarrhea in cats can have several causes, with infections from single-cell intestinal parasites being a common explanation. Researchers from the Vetmeduni Vienna, studied nearly 300 cats in order to assess the presence and prevalence of parasitic species in Austria. The most common causative agents were Giardia. One species of Giardia that was found may also be transmissible to humans. The results of the study were published in the journal Parasitology Research.
