Please keep in mind, that some vector-borne transmitted pathogens are not only spread by vectorial transmission and infection does not necessarily require a vector as f.ex. ticks, fleas or mosquitoes. In some vector-borne infections as f.ex. hepatozoonosis and leishmaniosis, vertical transmission is another important route of transmission.

Vector-Borne Diseases (VBDs)

We would like to present you different vector-borne infectious agents. These bacterial, viral and parasitic pathogens may cause severe diseases in pets and many of them are known to be zoonotic. Blood-feeding arthropods as for example ticks, fleas and mosquitos are known to be potential vectors.

The distribution of the diseases is dependent on the regional habitats of the individual vectors and the establishment of pathogen reservoirs.

In Germany, vector-borne diseases are of rising interest due to import of dogs from abroad, national and international travelling and changes in climatic conditions influencing the distribution of the vectors.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you may have questions and/or are interested in a cooperation with focus on vector-borne diseases: vbd@laboklin.com.
