Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite, its primary host being the Felidae family (cats), but is a parasite that can infect all homeotherms.
Human infection occurs worldwide and is usually benign or asymptomatic but has serious consequences in pregnant women and immunodeficient hosts. Most animals that have Toxoplasma show no sign of disease. The most severe symptoms are observed in young animals with the disease, most commonly being seen in puppies or kittens
