FECAVA on zoonosis

Sneeze, lick, scratch, bite – and other ways to transmit diseases to people will be discussed at the FECAVA symposium on zoonosis, on Friday 7 November, at the occasion of the EuroCongress in Munich.

The organisers have put together a star-studded programme on zoonosis in relation with companion animals, including Mike Lappin (Fort Collins, USA) who will give an update on toxoplasmosis, feline intestinal protozoa and bartonella (cat scratch disease). Thomas Vahlenkamp (Leipzig, Germany) will discuss influenza in cats and dogs and their zoonotic potential, while Jane Sykes will give a presentation on canine (and feline!) leptospirosis.

Other highlights include a presentation on selected vector-borne diseases and the Callisto project by Gad Baneth (Israel) and a discussion about the need for rabies vaccination in pets by Uwe Truyen (Germany).
