This letter advises the imminent formation of the Companion Animal Parasites Council for the Tropics (CAPCT).
The CAPCT consists of region-specific (e.g., Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Caribbean, Africa) experts comprising
academics, veterinarians, parasitologists, physicians and allied industry partners that will work together to inform,
guide and develop best-practice recommendations for the optimal diagnosis, treatment and control of companion
animal parasites in the tropics, with the aim of protecting the health of pets and that of the public.
