“Beaver Fever,” or Giardiasis, is caused by a single-celled parasite called Giardia intestinalis. According to the most recent reports by the CDC, Vermont consistently has the highest rate of Giardia infection in the nation. Since the risk of infection for Vermonters is so high, it is important for both patients and providers to understand the transmission, symptoms, and treatment of this very common disease.
