Tritrichomonas foetus is a feline disease caused by protozoan parasites. It causes diarrhea in cats, which can be accompanied by blood in the stool. This disease spreads easily, and shared litter boxes in a multiple cat household promote contamination of uninfected cats. Shared litter areas also cause pervasive infection of cat colonies. In any situation where multiple cats are infected with tritrichomonas foetus, simultaneous treatment is necessary to eradicate the parasite.
A drug called ronidazole has been proven an effective treatment for tritrichomonas foetus. Westlab Pharmacy compounds ronidazole-based treatments for use in cats. We can work with you and your veterinarian to determine the dose amount and dosage form appropriate for cats affected by this illness
