Pets and People - Parasites

martihopson web.jpgHere at Island Morning we're starting a monthly feature called "Pets and People". Many Islanders are pretty protective of their pets...often they just become one of the family. So, that's why it's best to make sure these furry loved ones are in the best of health...and to know the signs if they're sick.  Dr. Marti Hopson is vice-president of the PEI Veterinary Medical Association. She joined Matt in the studio to talk about parasites. And just a caution to our listeners, there are parts of this interview that may be hard on those with weak stomachs.

Thanks to the members of the Companion Animal Welfare Initiative on P-E-I for their help with our new series "Pets and People".
