Veterinarian discuss threat from canine vector borne disease


A new research highlighting the threat of canine vector borne diseases (CVBD) and zoonotic diseases throughout Asia- Pacifi c region is currently being fi nalised by a group of veterinarian scientists specialising in canine parasitology. According to the veterinarian scientists, dogs are at high risk of not just contracting a number of debilititating and life threatening disease but also transmitting dangerous pathogens to other dogs as well as humans. The high risk disease areas are pin-pointed geographically on coloured maps, latest in the series of global occurrence maps developed fi rst in Europe by the CVBD World Forum.

The forum intends to compile the latest scientific knowledge to educate vets within the region and encourage dog owners to become more vigilant about parasite protection. The forum comprising of leading experts in natural sciences, veterinary and human medicines from Asia and Australia was founded on October 30, this year in Bangkok with an aim to exchange knowledge and fi ndings about the ectoparasite-pathogen-host interaction as well as characterisation and assessment of pathogens and vector distribution to increase awareness and to foster preventive measures. Its consolidated fi ndings will be exchanged intensively with the international CVBD world forum. This work has support of Bayer Animal Health.
