As I am sure you will already be aware, cases of canine babesiosis have been reported in non-travelling dogs in southeast England. The impact of global warming has lead many parasitologists to predict an increase in the incidence of tick-borne diseases for some time – and it looks like the signs are that these predictions are coming true. Through the experiences of our South African members and colleagues, we know what a devastating impact such diseases can have.
As a result of these developments, we are in close consultation with academics and suppliers alike about our choice of anti-parasitic products in our Preferred and Dedicated product listings. Please share your thoughts with us on this important topic by emailing [email protected].
Meanwhile, we’d like to draw your attention to the following web-resource http://www.cvbd.org/. Sponsored by Bayer the site is a great resource of information on canine vector-horned diseases gathered from independent key opinion leaders.
Love that you can just pick up the phone and speak to and friendly, helpful and knowledgeable person! It’s great!

Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!

Cheesy but true, I love that I can email a query over and it is dealt with straight away (or as soon as the office is open if I have emailed over the weekend). Everyone I speak to (and email) is so cheerful – just a pleasure to deal with – this certainly makes you stand head and shoulders above the rest.

The Vetsure approach demonstrates a clear understanding of modern veterinary practice from both a business and clinical perspective… I believe that this model will shape the future of pet insurance in the UK.
