Publisher’s Note

September 2007

This issue of focuses on the effect parasites, both internal and external, can have on the lives of animal companions and their owners. While it is common knowledge that parasites such as fleas, ticks and mites can be annoying and bothersome, fewer people realize that these parasites are potentially dangerous transmitters of disease.

With proper care and the right medication, many of the problems associated with infestation can be avoided. The use of a topical flea and tick preventative provides a convenient and effective way to treat and prevent parasites.

With the help of our sponsor, Pfizer Animal Health, we have compiled information and tips about how to help keep pets, their homes and their owners free of parasites and the diseases they may carry.

Finally, the International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium 2007 will be held in New Orleans, La., September 26-30. The focus of this year’s symposium will be Critical Pharmacology and will feature of number of fascinating exhibits and lectures. We hope to see you there!

Best Regards,
