This is an article on the most common blood and tick-borne parasites found in dogs and cats in the United Kingdom. It will hopefully make veterinary nurses aware of the clinical signs and nursing care that is needed and also the methods of prevention of the different diseases that these parasites cause. There is also a small section on blood borne parasites which are less common because they are found outside the United Kingdom, but that are increasingly important as they may become more common in practice as a consequence of more pets travelling to and from different countries.
