I1 Posted December 4, 2004 Share Posted December 4, 2004 The idea of this topic is for people to post information about the risks to dogs in different areas of France.My personal experience is that whilst my local vets are excellent, they tend not to volunteer information – you have to ask them and to ask them you have to know about things. For example, I live in dept 37/72 and have been unable (so far) to find out if Heartworm is a significant risk or not. Sometimes, just knowing the French name for a disease can help people.Before leaving the UK I checked with my vet about anything my dogs should be vaccinated against (in addition to standard stuff and obviously rabies) or any precautions I should take and they said nothing additional.PIROPLASMOSE RISKS IN FRANCEFor example, the risk of Piroplasmose is published by Merial (the company that manufacturers the vaccine and can be found at http://fr.merial.com/pdfs/prevention/Leaflet_PIRODOG_tryp_ok_2_quest.pdf This link has a map of France and shows the risk in each department based on reported incidence.
