Parasite infections are real and can be deadly to pets. Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) predicts that heartworm will be higher than average especially in areas of the Southeast United States; the forecast for Lyme disease is for a continued spread in the Atlantic Coast and Midwest.
CAPC, the leading source on parasitic diseases that threaten the health of pets and people, released its annual 2019 parasite forecast and corresponding 30-day forecast maps to alert pet owners of pending outbreaks. Veterinarians, Dr. Rick Marrinson and Dr. Karen Fling show us how you can use them to take precautions for your pet such as testing and year-round protection.
