Hello!

I was reading about coccidia isospora in the Merck manual online and I came across this:

"Treatment may be unnecessary in cats because they usually spontaneously eliminate the infection."

Does anyone know how this works?

Thanks!

heh...I think also it's self limiting because isospora undergoes a limited number of rounds of replication in the intestine before forming oocysts and exiting out the back end.

...and immune system ;)
