  • infection
  • Giardia infection is transmitted through the fecal-oral route and results from the ingestion of Giardia cysts through the consumption of fecally contaminated food or water or through person-to-person (or, to a lesser extent, animal-to-person) transmission ( 11 ). (cdc.gov)
  • Use of concentration methods and trichrome staining might not be sufficient to identify Giardia because variability in the concentration of organisms in stool can make this infection difficult to diagnose. (cdc.gov)
  • cysts
  • Because Giardia cysts can be excreted intermittently, multiple stool collections (i.e., three stool specimens collected on separate days) increase test sensitivity ( 21 ). (cdc.gov)
  • dog's

  • My question to this knowledgeable group is how to be sure to get rid of the giardia and coccidia from our house and YARD. (pets.ca)
  • incubation
  • During the first incubation, Giardia specific antigen present in the stool specimens are captured by monoclonal antibodies attached to the microwells. (rapidtest.com)
  • microbes
  • But additional studies on Giardia and other microbes showed that actually, the mitochondria were there. (nhpr.org)
  • diarrheal
  • Giardia was originally observed by von Leeuwenhoek in 1681, in his own diarrheal stool, and was described by Vilem Dusan Lambl in 1859 and by Alfred Giard in 1895. (medscape.com)
  • Hygiene
  • Please note that giardia is treatable and good hygiene and sanitation is a great tool in reducing the likelihood of being tainted with giardia. (vetinfo.com)
  • common
  • Btw, here in the western US at least, Giardia has a common name 'beaver fever' because it can be contracted by drinking untreated water out of mountain streams. (pets.ca)
  • feces
  • Your dog can get Giardia by drinking water that has been contaminated by feces or by eating something that has been contaminated by feces, like grass . (akc.org)
