  • Join Ian Wright – BVMS, MSc, MRCVS for three 2-hour online sessions
  • Increased pet travel and importation of rescued dogs is leading to an associated increase in risk of exotic parasites and vectors establishing in the UK. The expanding distribution of a range of vector-borne diseases also makes it more likely that exotic parasites may be encountered while pets are on holiday abroad. It is vital that veterinary professionals are able to accurately advise clients in relation to pet travel based on the latest parasite distribution data to minimise health risks posed to both pet and owner. Vigilance in imported pets for relevant clinical signs and appropriate parasite diagnostic testing are also vital both for individual health and wider UK biosecurity.
