Co-infections with other intestinal protozoa are common and this parasite is not thought to be a primary initiator of disease.
Species which are pathogenic to dogs include:
- Tritrichomonas foetus
In dogs, tritrichomonas infections are often related to intermittent diarrhea, but most dogs are asymptomatic.
