Cryptosporidiosis

12/27/01

A parasite. The feces will be yellow to brown and most likely creamy textured with gas bubbles. There will be noticeable weight loss, anorexia, tenesmus (rhythmic straining of the muscles of the anus). It does not respond to treatment. Animals either recover on their own or die. It is easily spread to man so you may want to consult with your veterinarian if you suspect this disease. It appears rarely in goats and requires laboratory diagnosis.
