This article from today's email Animal Health Smartbrief from the AVMA reminds
everyone that dog parks can have drastic effects on your pet, and e. coli cause
lots of problems up through UTI's. Does not mention cats in specific, but I assume
the same applies.

E. coli can make your pets sick
(video and article)

Joe Bartges, professor of medicine and nutrition at UT, says, "If they have an intestinal E. coli disease then it would be diarrhea, vomiting, maybe systemic illness fevers. A urinary infection would be like people with urinary tract infections urinating blood, peeing in house, dripping urine urgency and discomfort."
