amoeba Entamoeba histolytica causes chronic diarrhea in dogs and humans, while, Acantoamoeba causes neurological problems.

Fecal examination is looking for trophozoites. Trophozoites are most times very difficult to find in the feces. Different types of visualization (stains) are used, but basically there are more better diagnostic tools to determine if the amebiasis infection is in question.
