fIDEXX topic of the month: Canine leishmania - a quick guide


Canine leishmania is a vector borne disease caused by the protozoan parasite and transmitted by sand flies. is endemic in many parts of southern Europe. The sand fly vector is not currently present in the UK, but despite this, the disease is being identified more and more frequently, due to the large number of imported dogs being brought into the UK from mainland Europe. Clinical disease results from an inappropriate and ineffective immune response to the parasite. A wide variety of clinical signs can be present which may include exfoliative dermatitis, lymphadenopathy and weight loss. In this webinar we will focus on the clinical approach to the patient with suspected Leishmaniasis and provide a brief overview of treatment options and recommendations for monitoring response to treatment.
