scil Rapid Test for detection of Giardia duodenalis antigen in fecal samples. Giardia is a zoonotic, protozoal parasite which forms trophozoites in the intestine where they can lead to enterocyte apoptosis and diarrhea. Trophozoites and infectious cysts are intermittently shed with the feces. Clinically, Giardia infection can lead to acute or chronic diarrhea in dogs and cats, which may be self-limiting. Asymptomatic cases occur frequently as well as periodic-intermittent diseases. The latter one is attributed to the persistence of cysts for month in the environment as they are very resistant. These facts favor reinfection of patients, which is especially in househoulds with multiple animals problematic. Screening should therefore always include all animals present in the family.
