Two confirmed cases of fatal disseminated toxoplasmosis occurred in an urban zoological
collection of meerkats (Suricata suricatta). Both cases are suspected to be the result of feral cats
gaining access to the enclosure. Toxoplasmosis has rarely been documented in meerkats.
Subsequent to prophylactic treatment of all the animals and structural changes being
implemented within the enclosure, no new cases have been recorded to date. Very little
information is available on the disease in viverrids.
