Resources - 

How important is parasite prevention and why is my veterinarian always pushing it? The websites below offer valuable information to help you understand your pet's risk of exposure to certain parasites based on your location. They also provide educational tools on the different diseases that are carried by parasites, how they can be transmitted to your pet as well as treatment and prevention, and potential risks parasites can present to people. We hope that these resources will help you make informed decisions in caring for your pet and preventing parasite infections.

 

The Companion Animal Parasite Council

The Companion Animal Parasite Council or 'CAPC,' is an independent council of health care professionals including veterinarians and veterinary parasitologists. This council was established to create guidelines for the optimal control of the parasites that pose health risks to pets and their people. A parasite prevalence map is listed on their website and can be used to view the incidence of certain parasites found in dogs and/or cats in your particular region. Check out this link to their website: http://www.capcvet.org

 

CAPC also has a special site dedicated to owner education and resources about pets and parasites. Visit their webpage for helpful information and frequently asked questions about common parasites, problems, and resolutions. http://www.petsandparasites.org
