Pet owners may be potentially exposed to a variety of zoonotic parasites through contact with their pets and their shared environment. Some of these such as Toxoplasma gondii, Toxocara and Lyme disease carry a high public profile due to media attention and well recognised disease syndromes. Concerned owners often approach veterinary practices to discuss concern surrounding these pathogens and vet nurses play a vital role in putting disease risks in perspective as well as giving accurate practical control advice. This series of videos discusses these parasites and their control as well as other common zoonoses such as fleas, bartonellosis and giardiosis. It also covers the identification of fleas and ticks, which is vital in terms of their control and recognition of the diseases they may be carrying.
Topics covered include:
- Commonly known public zoonses including Toxoplasma gondii, Toxocara, Lyme disease and many more
- Identification of zoonotic parasites
- Accurate advice giving on risk of zoonoses and associated disease
- Control measures and prevention of common zoonoses
