All about Nick
The thought of parasites makes most pet owners shudder. Just in case we’ve forgotten what they are, a parasite is an organism that lives off another animal without benefit to that animal and without killing that animal. Parasites can be classified into external (ectoparasites) and internal (endoparasites). There are many different types of these critters, from roundworms to hookworms, tapeworms to fleas and ticks. Here is an overview of some of the drugs used to kill them, and a couple of pointers that you as a conscientious pet owner might want to be aware of.

My name is Nick, I'm an 8 year old German Shepherd male and my life changed in 2 ways in the last years. For one thing, I was adopted by Natasha who worked at the the shelter were I was abandonned FOR THE 4th time!!!!!! In 5 years. No one thought I would ever find a home because of my age and the fact that ,my previous owners had told the people who worked at the shelter that I was aggressive! Well, I guess Nat saw past the "beware of aggressive dog" signe on my cage and after weeks of caring for me at the shelter she saw the great dog I really was and decided to take me in as a roommate!!!!! I now had my own "little house" inside the big house,(some call it a cage), but I could go in and out and was never locked in!!!! And she put 2 comforters both folded in 4 so I would have something soft to lie on that was ALL MINE!!!!! I am always welcomed on the bed, but I prefer my little house. I know Nat wishes I would sleep next to her but my previous owners were so mean about it, I just can't get used to the idea that I'm allowed!!
The other thing that changed in my life is that 2 and a half months ago, I was hit by a car, and subsequently LOST MY RIGHT FRONT PAW.
Nat and her Mom tried EVERYTHING to save my paw, all to no avail. When I realized that I had been amputated, I went into a DEEP depression. I wouldn,t eat, drink or sleep. I was in pain from the operation and thought I would never have fun again.
Then ,one day Nat started taking me to the park like old times!!(she wasn't allowed to take me out long because of the injury for 2 months) I was no longer in pain and I saw another dog! WOW!! A FRIEND!! I thought because of this accident I would be locked in the house forever,yet, here I was, in my favourite dog park RUNNING with another dog!! Yes!! I could RUN!! Even with only 3 legs!!!! And I can,t TELL you the attention I get! Everyone thinks I'm a HERO!! People come up and pat me ALL THE TIME!! WEll, I am very Cute!!
