Colorado Trichomoniasis Update

Trichomoniasis is caused by a single celled flagellated protozoan parasite that is known to be a pathogen of the bovine reproductive tract as well as the intestinal tract of cats. It causes infertility, and, at times, has caused spontaneous abortions in the first trimester.
