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.

My crazy border collie!  We went looking for our "Bob the Dog", and did he ever find us.  Couch Potato of the litter - or as much as a border collie can be.  He loved us so well, and was so loved in return.  We'd expected to have him for so much longer, border collies live such a long time usually.  But kidney disease struck, and when he was hurting too much to play in spite of his best efforts, we knew it was time to let him go.  His ashes will be returned to the home he loved best in British Columbia, overlooking the yard that he played - and gardened - in.  Gone, but never, ever forgotten.
