Novel parasites that have established in the UK such as Tick-borne encephalitis will be considered and those that have spread such as Angiostrongylus vasorum. Parasites that are being seen in imported pets that might establish here will also be considered including Leishmania infantum, Brucella canis and fly-borne nematodes.
