Increased importation of pets in the face of expanding global parasite distributions is increasing the risk of pets infected with exotic parasites entering the UK. Rapid recognition of clinical signs, effective use of preventative treatments and screening tests in imported dogs are vital, both to improve prognostic outcomes for infected dogs and limit parasite spread and zoonotic risk. Information on the parasite’s likely to be encountered and available tests is changing rapidly. This course will summarise the most common parasitic diseases seen in imported dogs and the pathogens that cause them. Updates on diagnostic and treatment options will be given. The evening will include a series of interactive cases so you can pit your wits against the exotic pathogens recently see in UK practice! Regions Now events comprise an introductory lecture with supporting content available one week before a live lecture. This is followed by a one-week online discussion forum allowing participants to offer observations about the lessons learned and describe their own experience in handling cases. Regions Now sessions are free to BSAVA members and available for non-members to book - visit the Regions page of the BSAVA website for details of future Regions Now events. Recordings will be available for 3 years via the BSAVA Webinar Library.
