Vector-borne diseases in dogs

Vector-borne diseases (VBDs) are diseases that are carried by vectors such as ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and sand-flies. A vector does not cause disease itself but can spread infection by passing on pathogens from one host to another. Due to climate change, increased pet travel, and imported (and rescued) dogs, these diseases are becoming more common.
