Vector-borne diseases are being seen increasingly in small animal practice in the UK. In part this is due to greater awareness of these conditions and better diagnostic tests; however vector populations are changing with climate and animals are being seen in the UK with non-endemic disease due to travel and importation. This talk will focus on Borreliosis, Babesiosis, Erhlichiosis, Leishmaniosis and Dirofilariasis provide updates on diagnosis and treatment for each of these emerging UK diseases.
