  1. A = G. duodenalis, B = G. enterica, C and D = G. canis, F = G. cati. Heterogeneous sequences identified at a single locus are identified by letters separated by commas. The figure in parentheses indicates the number of samples with this result. For example in the first row 13 cats were detected with G. duodenalis only at the 18S, 2 cats were detected with G. enterica (BIV) only at the GDH, 1 cat was detected with G. canis (C genotype) only at the β-giardin, 1 cat was detected with both G. duodenalis and G. cati at the 18S as well as G. cati only at the GDH, 1 cat was detected with G. duodenalis at both the 18S and the GDH and finally 1 cat was detected with G. cati at both the 18S and the β-giardin while in the same sample G. enterica (BIV) was detected only at the GDH.
