Canine Tapeworm - Dipylidium caninum

There are a number of nasty little critters in in the world just waiting to hitch a ride on your beloved dog. Just thinking about it gives me the creeps. I'm sure you feel the same. As much as we might not want to imagine parasites on (or in) our dog, it's simply a fact of life. As a dog owner, it's vital that we understand the risks associated with various parasites. More important, however, is learning how to prevent them.

The simple truth is this: your dog will be exposed to parasites in his life. It could be fleas, intestinal worms or something else. Learn all about the common parasites seen in dogs and how you can protect your dog, yourself and your family. Yes, that's right - some parasites are a risk to humans, too. What are you doing to prevent to parasites from affecting your dog?
