The incidence of infection with Angiostrongylus vasorum appears to be increasing in the UK, with cases increasing in the traditional problem areas of the Home Counties, South of Wales, and South West of England and moving northwards, with affected patients now being seen in northern England and Scotland. Most dogs develop signs of cardiorespiratory disease, however a significant proportion develop signs secondary to coagulopathy. Several methods of diagnosis are available including faecal analysis and a rapid patient side blood test with good sensitivity and specificity.
