While COVID-19 is impacting all of us, the veterinary profession continue to do an amazing job of continuing pet health care while keeping risk to staff and clients to a minimum. During the crisis, parasite control remains a vital part of maintaining animal health, and ESCCAP UK and Ireland continues to help disseminate the latest evidence-based parasite control advice by email, phone, website and CPD platforms to keep pets healthy and to guard against zoonotic risk. This article will provide a brief overview of some of the current parasite hot topics and threats to the UK, taking information from the quarterly Parasite Forecast published on the ESCCAP UK and Ireland website: www.esccapuk.org.uk.
