Additionally, documentation must be provided by a vaccination certificate showing the date of vaccination, vaccine used, revaccination due date, identification information for the vaccinated animal, contact information of the animal's custodian, and signature, signature stamp, or computerized signature and contact information of the veterinarian responsible for administration of the vaccine. If the dog or cat is less than 12 weeks of age, the custodian should confine the animal until 30 days subsequent to its initial vaccination. International Movement of Dogs and Cats into Texas. The federal government regulates the entry of pets into the United States; requirements set forth in this section are in addition to meeting federal requirements.

If the department receives a federal importation notice, the department may request the local rabies control authority in the area where the animal will be located to monitor the notice for compliance. Contingent upon the department receiving notification of an importation-compliance failure, the department may report the failure to the appropriate authority. If an initial vaccination was administered less than 30 days prior to arrival in the United States, the custodian must confine the dog or cat for the balance of the 30 days.

Additionally, documentation must be provided by a vaccination certificate or passport showing the date of vaccination, vaccine used, revaccination due date, identification information for the vaccinated animal, contact information of the animal's custodian, and signature, signature stamp, or computerized signature and contact information of the veterinarian responsible for administration of the vaccine. This section contains photographic images of canine coccidia coccidiosis in dogs , which were discovered on a fecal flotation exam of a dog's stools droppings.

The fecal float test was performed on the dog a stray puppy at a shelter because it had watery, slimy, bad-smelling stinky diarrhea and because it was stressed; living at an animal shelter dog shelters house many dogs of different ages and unknown health background in close proximityto one another and so the spread of infectious disease is highly possible and of young age diarrhea in very young animals is often caused bydiet or by infectious diseases or parasites. The puppy had been wormed with an intestinal "all wormer". Aside from the sloppy stools and the excessively frequent defecation, the puppy was otherwise happy and well.

As canine coccidia infestations are common in young puppies, including "wormed"puppies, a fecal float examination was considered prudent. The fecal floatation test found that the pup had high numbers of dog coccidia oocysts present in its stools. The puppywas treated for canine coccidiosis and the diarrhoea resolved. Fecal Float Hints and Tips: This case reminds us that fecal flotation is always a valuable diagnostictest to perform on animals with diarrhea, even if those animals have been recently "wormed.

They do not kill various other parasites of the intestinaltract that can cause diarrhea, like: coccidia Isospora, Eimeria , Toxoplasma , Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Nor do theykill some of the worm parasites located outside of the intestinal tract e. These other parasites, like the coccidian organisms found in this case, can sometimes be diagnosed on fecal floatation testing. Canine coccidia parasite picture This is a microscope image of the fecal flotation test thatwas performed on the young shelter puppy with the diarrhea. Several canine coccidiaoocysts Isospora species are visible in the picture. These are the ovoid to circular structures scattered throughout the image. They have a sharp, clearly-definedouter wall or shell and one or two central clusters of cells called "sporonts" these arein the process of maturing and dividing to form infectious structures called sporozoites.

Two canine coccidiaoocysts Isospora species are visible in the picture. These are the ovoid structures in the centre of the image. The oocyst on the left has a single sporont that is in the process of dividing into two sporonts. Coccidia in puppies parasite pictures 32 and This is a close-up microscope image of the fecal flotation test that was performed on the young shelter puppy with the diarrhea.

One canine coccidia oocyst Isospora species with two clearly-visible sporonts is visible in the picture. The oocyst floats within a background of millions of tiny fecal bacteria bacterial soup. Author's note: You will always find millions of bacteria on a fecal float. They are natural residents of the colon and are of little diagnostic significance on a fecal flotation test. Coccidiosis in dogs image This is an extreme close-up microscope image of the fecal flotation test that was performed on the young shelter puppy with the diarrhea.

This section contains photographic images of feline coccidia coccidiosis in cats , which were discovered on a fecal flotation exam of a cat's stools droppings. The fecal float test was performed on the cat one of a group of stray kittens at a shelter because it had soft, slimy, yellowish, custard-consistency, bad-smelling faeces occasionally containing a streak of fresh blood and because it was stressed, living at an animal shelter cat shelters house many cats of different ages and unknown health background in close proximity to one another and so the spread of infectious disease is highly possible and of young age diarrhea in very young animals is often caused bydiet or by infectious diseases or parasites.

All of the kittens in the group had the sameproblem. The kittens had each been wormed with an intestinal "all wormer", which had not helped. Aside from the sloppy stools and the excessively frequent defecation, the kittens were otherwise happy and well. As feline coccidia infestations are common in young kittens, including "wormed"kitties, a fecal float examination was considered prudent. The fecal flotation test found that the cat had high numbers of feline coccidia oocysts an Isospora species, most likely Isospora felis present in its stools.

Other smaller oocysts of an unknown coccidia species were also found. The kittens were alltreated for feline coccidiosis and the diarrhoea resolved. Fecal Float Hints and Tips: This case also reminds us that, in "group situations," it is important to medicate and treat all of the animals that have been in contact with the infected animal and not just the animalthat had the fecal float performed. Feline coccidiosis parasite picture This is a microscope image of the fecal float test thatwas performed on the young shelter kittens with the diarrhea. Several feline coccidiaoocysts Isospora species - likely to be Isospora felis are visible in the picture. They have a sharp, clearly-definedouter wall or shell and one or two central clusters of cells called "sporonts" these arecellular structures that are in the process of maturing and dividing to form infectious structures called sporozoites.

Coccidiosis in cats image This is an extreme close-up microscope image of the fecal flotation test that was performed on the young shelter kitty with the diarrhea. One feline coccidia oocyst an Isospora species, likely to be Isospora felis with a single clearly-visible sporont is visible in the picture. Coccidiosis in cats image This is an extremely close-up microscope image of the faecal flotation test that was performed on the young shelter kitty with the diarrhea. A feline coccidia oocyst an Isospora species, likely to be Isospora felis with a single clearly-visible sporont is visible in the picture.

It is the oocyst on the left. The parasite on the right of this photo is not Isospora felis the typical disease-causingcoccidian species infecting cats - it is too spherical and small to be Isospora felis. It could be another, less common, feline Isospora species: Isospora rivolta , which can also cause diseasein cats. Alternatively, this small oocyst could belong to one of a group of mid-sized non-disease-causing coccidian species infecting domestic cats e. Besnoitia species. Besnoitia species do not cause diarrheaand do not require treatment. The small, round oocyst seen on this image image 38 is unlikely to be from the non-pathogenic Sarcocystis or Hammondia Genuses of coccidian-type parasites because itis too big these parasites are Toxoplasma gondii oocyst either.

Toxoplasma is normally Toxoplasma is a protozoan parasite that can produce diarrhea and also other more systemic disease signs in cats as well as a range of other disease symptoms in people and other animals. We always look out for it on fecal flotation examinations of cat faeces because it hashuman infectivity risks i. Fecal Float Hints and Tips: This image picture 38 was included because it illustrates how the different Genuses andspecies of coccidia-like parasite can have oocysts of different sizes and how, by measuring andcomparing these sizes, we can make an accurate diagnosis of a parasite's Genus and thus a parasite's likelydisease significance. The round oocyst shown in image 38 was not Isospora felis , however, from its large size,we can say that it was probably an Isospora type and thus of similar diagnostic and disease significance to Isospora felis.

The oocyst in question was also large enough to be Besnoitia , a parasitewhich wouldn't have caused any disease signs. The most important thing is that the oocyst in question was much too big to be a nasty Toxoplasma or Cryptosporidium oocyst, so there was, thus, little concern about the mystery organism going on to infect people. Finding significant variations in the shapes and sizes of oocysts should be a clue that different species of protozoanparasites may be infecting the animal, the significance of which may be minor to severe depending onthe parasite in question.

The photo should be a reminder to fecal float technicians tobe open-minded in their microscopic parasite searches. One should not expect all coccidian oocysts to be of a set size - failure to appreciate just how tiny some oocysts can becan result in smaller oocysts being missed on a faecal float. Coccidiosis parasite pictures 39 and These two images are microscope photographs of a fecal float test that was performed on an older cat with diarrhea.

They do not come from the same cat as those fecal floatation images preceding them. The first image parasite picture 39 contains an oval-shaped coccidian oocyst inside of circle withtwo sporonts that is probably an Isospora felis type. The second image parasite picture 40 is taken at the same magnification and contains a very-round, much smaller oocyst inside of circle ,which is unlikely to be of the same coccidian species as the oocyst in image We know thatthe organism in picture 40 is a protozoan coccidia-like oocyst because it has the same structure andappearance as one tiny size, sharply-defined wall, sporonts and so on. Coccidian oocysts have to be mature and to havereached their infective, sporozoite-containing stages before a definitive species diagnosis can be made.

Thus, the disease-causing significance of these two oocysts is unknownand can only be surmised. Author's note: These images were included because they illustrate how different speciesof coccidian and coccidia-like parasite can have oocysts of different sizes. Finding significant variationsin the shapes and sizes of oocysts should be a clue that different species of protozoanparasites may be infecting the animal, the significance of which may be minor to severe depending onthe parasite in question. These two photos should be a reminder to fecal float technicians tobe open-minded in their microscopic parasite searches. Unlike the case with worm eggs which are of a more uniform size , one should not expect all coccidian-type oocysts to be of a set size.

Failure to appreciate just how tiny some oocysts can becan result in smaller oocysts being missed on a fecal flotation. A person only expecting to findan oocyst the size of that shown in image 39 may well overlook tiny oocysts like that picturedin photo If you would like to know more about feline coccidia, visit our great coccidiosis page. This section contains photographic images of rabbit coccidia, which were discovered during fecal flotation examinations of the scats droppings or spore of two different rabbits. Rabbit 1: The fecal floatation test was performed on one of the rabbits a young rabbit at a shelter because it hadmarked weight loss and profuse, severe, brown, smelly, watery diarrhoea, which coated its belly and legs see image opposite.

Aside from the watery stools, the underweight body condition and the excessively frequent defecation, the rabbit was otherwise well, though perhaps a little dehydrated and depressed. As rabbit coccidia infestations are common in young rabbits especially shelter rabbits , afecal float examination was considered prudent. The fecal flotation test found that the bunny had moderate numbers of rabbit coccidia oocysts Eimeria species present in its stools. The rabbit was treated for the coccidiosis and the diarrhoea resolved.

Rabbit 2: The second rabbit had a fecal flotation test performed merely out of curiosity. Like the first rabbit, it was a young rabbit at a shelter, but, unlike the first rabbit, its droppings were completely normal. The faecal flotation test found that the rabbit had massive numbers of rabbit coccidia oocysts Eimeria species present in its stools far more than the number seen in the first rabbit. The rabbit was not treated for the coccidiosis as it was unaffected by it presumably, it was an asymptomaticcarrier animal. An animal can be infested with seeminglymassive numbers of parasites e. In these situations, it seems that the individual animal's immunity has a big part to playin the manifestation of disease signs.

Rabbit 1 might be an animal with a poor immunesystem an inability to fight off parasitic disease or an immune system that has not yet managed to adapt enough to cope with the coccidian organisms present in the gut. Thusit shows signs of disease, even with fewer organisms present than rabbit 2. Rabbit 2 probably has a great immune systemand can fight off the effects of the coccidia organisms show no signs of disease eventhough many are present. Rabbit 2 could easily become like rabbit 1 showing signs of disease if its immune system ability to fight off the coccidia wanes. This could happen if the rabbitbecame immune suppressed. Stress, other illnesses, sudden weight loss, malnutrition, unhygienic living conditions, extremes of cold or heat, bullying, immune suppressant drugs and a raft of other immunosuppressantfactors could cause such an effect on rabbit 2.

Likewise, rabbit 1 could become like rabbit 2 immune to the effects of the parasites if it is supported with anticoccidial medicationsand if its immune system was improved through better health, living conditions, good diet and the like. Fecal Float Hints and Tips: This case is also important because it highlights the risksposed to other animals by the so-called " carrier state. Such animals, termed"carrier animals" are important reservoirs of infection for other animals becausethey shed infectious organisms e. An asymptomatic animal like rabbit 2 could be disastrous ina high-stress, overcrowded production animal facility like a rabbitry meat or wool productionrabbit farm because it would be shedding large numbers of coccidia organisms that could make the other rabbits very sick.

Rabbit 1 - fecal float: Rabbit coccidiosis 41 and These are microscope images of the rabbit coccidia oocyststhat were found in the fecal float of rabbit 1 the rabbit with the diarrhea. Rabbit 2 - fecal float: Rabbit coccidiosis 43, 44 and These are microscope images of the rabbit coccidia oocyststhat were found in the fecal float of rabbit 2 the rabbit with no diarrhea. The fecal flotation testcontains almost wall-to-wall coccidian oocysts far in excess of the numbers seen in rabbit 1.

This section contains photographic images of feline Spirometra tapeworm eggs, which were discovered on a fecal flotation exam of a cat's stools droppings.

The fecal flotation test was performed on the cat a stray cat at a shelter because it was thin, had moderate diarrhea and had no history of prior worming. The fecal flotation test found that the cat had Spirometra tapeworm otherwise called "zipperworm" eggs present in its stools. The animal was wormed with an all-wormer tablet, one that included a common tapeworming medication: Praziquantel. Within the day, a large 60cm Spirometra tape worm also commonly known as a 'zipper-worm' was voided in the animal's faeces. Fecal Float Hints and Tips: This case provides a neat demonstration of how a simple fecal flotation test can lead to the diagnosis, treatment and cure of a parasitic disease.

Spirometra tapeworms are commonly found in shelter cats, many of whom have lead a feral or stray existence. These large tapeworms are caught by outdoor-living cats through the consumption ofkilled prey rodents, reptiles and frogs , which carry the juvenile "spargana" forms of thetapeworm. Tapeworms in cats pictures 46 and These are microscope photos of the feline tapeworm eggsthat were found in the fecal flotation test of the stray cat's faeces.

The Spirometra eggs arethe dark brown, oval-shaped rugby-ball-shaped objects. These eggs have been labeled in image Tapeworms in cats pictures 48 and These are microscope photos of more of the feline tapeworm eggsthat were found in the fecal flotation test of the stray cat's faeces. The Spirometra tapeworm eggs arethe brown, oval-shaped rugby-ball-shaped objects in the photo.

There are many cat tapeworm eggs present in these two photos. Feline tapeworm photo This is a high-power x oil immersion view of one of the Spirometra tapeworm eggs. The egg has a cap-like structure on one end, which is distinctive, called a cap or an operculum. Thishas been labeled in this image. Cat tapeworm picture This is the large, adult Spirometra tapeworm that was voided in the cat's faeces. Cat tapeworm picture This is the same Spirometra tapeworm that was voided in the cat's feces. It is a close-up view of the dorsal top aspect of the tapeworm, showing off the tapeworm's segments. You should notice theline of holes running down the centre of the tapeworm's body. These are the tapeworm's "genital pores" - the holes throughwhich the feline tapeworm voids its eggs.

This central line of holes makes the tapeworm look like a zipper: hence the name "zipperworm". Cat tapeworm picture This is the same Spirometra tapeworm that was voided in the cat's faeces. It is a close-up view of the ventral under-side aspect of the tapeworm, showing off the tapeworm's segments. Feline tapeworm pictures 55 and These are close-up images of several seven of the tapeworm's proglottid segments a single segment is indicated with a pink bracket in image The green arrow indicates the pore hole through which the tapeworm segment voids its eggs.

Aside from Spirometra tapeworm eggs above section - 5a , it is generally uncommon to find the eggs of most cat and dog tapeworm species on a faecal flotation test because these eggs are usually contained within a segment of the tapeworm's body called a proglottid. Tapeworm eggs are rarely found floating freely in the pet's droppings and thus they rarely turn upon a fecal float. Tapeworms in pets are generally diagnosed by a gross examination of the pet's fecesrather than by a fecal flotation test. Owners need to examine their pet's droppings and the skinimmediately around their pet's anus for tapeworm segments and individual proglottids proglottids look like white maggots and freshly-shed ones will seem to move and crawl about like real maggots, too in order to diagnose tapeworms.

If tapeworms are suspected, worming the animal with an all-wormer tablet that containsthe tapeworming medication: Praziquantel, will usually result in the tapeworm or tapewormsbeing voided in the pet's faeces. Cat tapeworm parasite pictures This is a microscope slide with a freshly-defecatedlength of a feline tapeworm on it. This tapeworm section contains many individual segments calledproglottids. Tapeworm lengths like this one are usually white and flat like fetuccini pasta and comprisedof many individual segments termed proglottids all stuck together end to end.

Cat tapeworm parasite pictures 58 and These images show a microscope slide with a freshly-defecatedsection of a feline tapeworm on it. Coverslips have been placed on top of the dead tapeworm'sbody to squash it down. By squashing the tapeworm's body in this way, the tapeworm'sindividual segments can be clearly seen. You should also be able to see that each tapeworm segment containstwo very white circular bodies positioned side by side. Each of these white bodiesis a part of the female reproductive tract where the segment makes its eggs i.

Because every mature segment of a tapeworm has its own set of reproductive organs, that's a lot of eggs which are able to be produced and released into the environment by a mature tapeworm! The shape and structure of each proglottid sac; the manner in which the proglottid sacslink end to end; the orientation and number of reproductive organs contained within each proglottid sacand the number and positioning of the tapeworm's genital pores the holes through which thetapeworm segments void their eggs can all be helpful things to examine when making a diagnosis of a tapeworm's Genus and species.

For example, some tapeworm types e. Dipylidium have two sets of reproductive organs and two genital pores per proglottid, whereascertain other tapeworm species have only the one. With Taenia species, the front end ofany one segment is shorter in width than the rear end of the segment that it attaches to, givingthe sides of the tapeworm a jagged appearance.

Knowing the Genus or species of the tapeworm in question gives the veterinarian an important clue as to how the animal host caught the parasite in the firstplace. For example, Dipylidium is caught by consuming tapeworm-infested fleas or lice , whereas Taenia tapeworms are caught by preying upon certain animal hosts like rodents and rabbits. This section contains photographic images of canine hookworm eggs strongyle-type eggs , which were discovered on a fecal flotation exam of a dog's stools droppings. The fecal float test was performed on the dog a middle-aged Bull-Arab dog because it was severely underweight; had black, tarry feces melaena ; had daily vomiting and regurgitation black vomit and had cranial abdominal pain, but no other obvious signs of major abdominal organ or intestinal disease e.

The animal had presented to the vet clinic as a stray and therefore had no history of prior worming- this added to suspicion that a worm problem might be a possible cause of the dog's symptoms. The fecal flotation test found that the dog had wall-to-wall hookworm eggs Ancylostoma species present in its stools. Because the canine hookworm eggs were so numerous on the fecal float test see images below , it wasassumed that hookworm parasites were the most likely cause of the dog's symptoms. Hookwormsfeeding on the host animal's blood bite and ulcerate the lining of the small intestine, producing intestinal trauma;intestinal pain and, in severe cases, black feces and vomitus fresh blood leaking from hookworm-induced small-intestinal ulcers is digested in the host's small intestine, producing a tarry-colored digesta that, when vomited or passed in the feces, appears black.

At last report, she was being treated in hospital, although the prognosis is presumably extremely poor if treatment was started after the onset of disease. Public health officials have investigated people who were in contact with the woman to determine who needs post-exposure treatment. They need to know about the risk of rabies in areas they visit, and avoid situations that might lead to a bite. Travelers and non-travelers alike need to know to go to a physician after any bite and to ensure that rabies exposure is duly considered.
