Drugs that fight parasites – Pet tip 256

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.

Smeagol was the cuddle monster.  Unfortunately he did have a congenital heart problem and was paralyzed after having a stroke.  We decided to euthanize him after seeing the fear in his eyes at being unable to move.  He is  very severely missed.
