Parasites & Vectors 2012, 5:62 (27 March 2012)
Seroprevalence of infection with or exposure to Dirofilaria immitis, Ehrlichia canis, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Anaplasma spp. and Leishmania infantum was assessed in dogs from Portugal. Results are expected to give veterinarians and public health authorities an increased awareness on canine vector-borne diseases and to promote control actions.

Vector-Borne Diseases - constant challenge for practicing veterinarians: recommendations from the CVBD World Forum
Parasites & Vectors 2012, 5:55 (20 March 2012)
The Canine Vector-Borne Diseases (CVBD) World Forum is a multidisciplinary group of experts from around the world who meet annually to share the latest advances in the knowledge of CVBDs. From advice on education and diagnosis to prevention and public health, the members of the CVBD World Forum have sought to empower veterinarians through recommendations focused on the day-to-day opportunities veterinarians have to play their part in protecting their clients and communities from the threat of CVBDs.
