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.

Mr. Band, an always beloved hamster just died. He got his name because of a white band around his tummy. I didn't know that he would just die yesterday. It was so sudden I thought. Although he is sick for a few weeks already, we did not bring him to the vet as Mr. Band has an illness that is not treatable called pneumonia. He live to an amazing age of 2 and a half years. Rest in peace Mr. Band.
