Kitten with tritrichomonas foetus

Hello Cat People

We just found out that our Mukmuk has the tritrichomonas foetus parasite. It's a particularly resistant protozoan that lives in his bowels. It causes chronic diarrhea in (usually) young cats. Has anyone ever had experience with this? I've also read that it can be a problem in rescue shelters/catteries. I wonder if I should notify the rescue that Mukmuk came from, as "heads-up" information.

Our vet clinic was excellent. We will hopefully start treatment early this week (after the long weekend). Pray that there will be no neurotoxic reactions in our Mukmuk as that is a potential concern with the drug used to treat the T. foetus.

Will keep updating as we progress....
