About the course

For pet owners taking their pets to mainland Europe, there is a need to comply with Pet Travel Scheme rules on rabies immunisation and tapeworm therapy. But the scheme does not take account other parasite threats that might be encountered. This module covers the four main parasite threats that dogs, cats or ferrets might encounter on a trip to mainland Europe. By doing this module you will:

  • know the main parasite risks for pets visiting mainland Europe;
  • know where to find information about parasite distribution;
  • understand the drug and non-drug measures for reducing risk of infection
  • be able to make a rational choice of parasiticide products using the comprehensive table of products.
