Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by a microscopic parasite called Toxoplasma gondii.
Cats get toxoplasmosis by eating infected rodents, birds, or other small animals. They can also get it by eating contaminated soil or water.
Toxoplasmosis can be spread to other animals and humans through contact with cat feces.
To protect your cat from toxoplasmosis, keep them indoors and feed them commercial cat food. You should also avoid feeding them raw meat.
Most cats with toxoplasmosis show no symptoms.
Treatment for toxoplasmosis depends on the severity of the infection. Most cats with mild to moderate infections do not require treatment.
