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.

Nikko was a cat I picked up from a litter at my grandparents farm. She was tiny and didn't meow the whole drive home (3 days, with some stops). She soon adjusted to life as a house cat and rarely ventured outside into the grass. She found our dog to be too full of energy and often could be found curled up under the covers on a bed. Today that is where she died peacefully. My younger brother came home to find her curled up on my parents bed. She will be greatly missed.
