Pet Tip

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.

We adopted Homer from our local humane society exactly one month ago today as we had recently lost our wonderful cat Archie and we felt Homer needed us and we needed him.  Unfortunately it would not last long as he started feeling sick a week ago and after a visit and a ultra sound at the vet's

today we were told that he had FIP and there was nothing we could do to help him.  Losing 2 cats in a little more than 2 months is almost too much to bear, but I take comfort in the fact he did not spend his last days in a caged environment and that he was surrounded by loved ones at the end.
