Cystoisospora Infection In Humans, Dogs and Cats

List of Human Diseases Associated with Toxoplasmosis - The infection with intracellular protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, one of the world's most common parasites infecting most warm-blooded animals (more than 30 species of birds and 300 species of mammals). It is the most common infection in humans (estimated to be 30–50% of the world population), more than latent tuberculosis which infects about one-third of the human population. Toxoplasma infection is associated with a high incidence of traffic accidents and diseases such as epilepsy and schizophrenia.

Trichuris Whipworms - Helminths are the most common parasites infecting humans in many countries and can cause malnutrition, anemia, growth retardation, and increased susceptibility to other infections.

While the canine whipworm can cause bloody diarrhea in your dog, three Trichuris species, namely T. trichiura, T. suis, and T. vulpis are considered zoonotic parasites which are a threat to human health.
