APHA Surveillance Project for Exotic Worms

APHA and the European Scientific Counsel Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) UK & Ireland are collaborating to encourage diagnosis and reporting of exotic worms and worm-like parasites in imported and travelled dogs.

APHA will carry out free of charge, morphological identification of suspected cases of the eye worm T. callipaeda, skin worm D. repens and the nasal pentastomid L. serrata seen in veterinary practices in England and Wales.

Further information is available on the APHA Vet Gateway and samples should be posted using the Surveillance for exotic worms recording form and sent to the APHA Carmarthen Veterinary Investigation Centre.
