Abstract

Reports of being diagnosed in the UK sometimes relate to dogs that have not travelled outside the UK. This is a reminder of the need to be alert to the presence of vector-borne diseases not only in pets which have been abroad but also those with no history of travel. BSAVA has produced key information for the profession about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of babesiosis.
