Parsasite Council Hits the Road, Stopping at Wrigley Field


The Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC)) is hitting the road to zap one parasite at a time; watch them come to your community to chase fleas down the street, tackle ticks and round up roundworms.

The idea is to come to where pet owners are, to communicate parasite prevention to pet owners. CAPC members include some of the most celebrated parasitologists in the country.  It really important because most parasites are preventable, and some can also affect people.

So CAPC is getting some Northern Exposure, sharing the latest information about parasite prevention and control. Stop by to learn more about protecting your family and your pets from harmful parasites, and register to win an iPod! All events are free and open to the public. CAPC parasite experts are at Wrigley Field today (July 24), vets can offer a free basic pet check. Hmmm….parasites – maybe that’s what’s wrong with the Cubs.

So what happens when you attempt to herd heartworm or try to whack whipworm? Follow the CAPC roadshow adventure on Facebook and on twitter (@capcvet) where CAPC will be hosting contests and giving away prizes all summer long.

I will be offering photos and more updates here….for all those parasite fans.
