ESCCAP Guidelines

for treatment + control of parasites

  • The guidelines we provide will help veterinarians and pet owners across Europe make the right decisions in looking after their pets responsibly and keeping them parasite free.
  • As no consistent European approach to parasite control in pets currently exists ESCCAP was founded to address this need and to develop and promote control guidelines for cats and dogs in Europe. These guidelines are especially important since the increases in the movement and transportation of pets within Europe.

ESCCAP National Associations

expert guidance for vets + pet owners

The parasiticides available in Europe are not uniform from country to country.

ESCCAP and its National Associations provide information about the products available in a variety of European countries.
