Dirofilaria immitis is being seen in the UK, not only in pets travelling abroad on the Pet Passport scheme but, more commonly, from dogs imported from countries where heartworm is endemic. This webinar explores the clinical signs that cats and dogs infected with D.immitis exhibit, the diagnostic tests used and your treatment/ preventative options. As veterinary professionals within the UK it is becoming more and more important for us to identify animals infected with these parasites.
