Canine Lungworm in the UK: Angiostrongylus vasorum and beyond

National media campaigns, increased geographic distribution and number of clinical
cases has put Angiostrongylus vasorum at the forefront of the minds of veterinary
professionals. This is essential, given the potential severity of disease in infected dogs
and its spread to parts of the country where it has not previously been routinely
diagnosed. The effects of other nematodes on the respiratory systems of UK dogs
however, should also be considered. Crenosoma vulpis, Eucoleus aerophilus and Oslerus
osleri are canine lungworms endemic in the UK and capable of causing respiratory
disease. This article considers the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of
lung disease caused by A.vasorum and other canine lungworms endemic in the UK.
