(Bayer is a DiversityInc Noteworthy Company)


Bayer Animal Health has continuously invested in raising awareness about Companion Vector-Borne Diseases to protect dogs and cats around the world from harmful diseases. Each year, Bayer Animal Health brings together an international group of the most recognized scientists and veterinarians in the field to present and discuss the latest research findings. This year’s CVBD Symposium took place in Athens, Greece, from March 13 to 16.

“Bayer and the attending scientists share the common goal to translate the latest scientific findings into practitioner benefit,” said Dr. Markus Edingloh, Head of Veterinary Scientific Affairs at Bayer Animal Health. “We want to promote innovative communication concepts that will increase the motivation of practicing veterinarians to fight CVBDs for the benefit of pet owners and their pets.”

In scientific sessions the researchers exchanged cutting edge research on important pathogens, vectors and diseases in different species and areas. The discussions included data on prevalence, diagnostic methods and treatment options for CVBDs.

As one of the highlights of this years symposium the participants agreed on a consensus statement about Leishmaniosis. “This initiative was started during last year’s meeting with the objective to emphasize the importance of fighting Leishmaniosis through a joint recommendation,” explained Dr. Markus Edingloh. “We want to draw attention to the fact that prevention plays an essential role in keeping our animals healthy.

About Companion Vector-Borne Diseases (CVBD)

Companion vector-borne diseases (CVBD) are a growing international public health threat. These diseases are transmitted by blood-feeding ectoparasites, including ticks (Lyme disease, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and hemoplasmosis), fleas (canine bartonellosis and feline rickettsiosis), and sand flies (leishmaniosis). They are known to veterinarians and public health professionals throughout the world and in some cases have also shown zoonotic consequences.
