Toxoplasmosis and Cats and Babies
We get contacted by cat owners and also farmers / stockholders wanting to give up their cats because of perceived consequences of a parasite called Toxoplasmosis.
This is a disease which remains widely misunderstood by a small number of GPs, midwifery and health visiting professionals, and some farm vets and veterinary practice staff.
It’s such a shame for this to happen. Understanding the nature of the disease, and the extremely low risks (and in the case of farm cats, potential benefits of maintaining a neutered cat colony) is really important. Our download gives more information about the disease and also about some of the other more significant risk activities which owners and carers really do need to be aware of.
