Pets and People - Fleas
This is the time of year when fleas start hitching a ride indoors aboard your pets. So fleas are the perfect topic for our feature called "Pets and People". Last week, Dr. Marti Hopson grossed us out with her discussion of parasites. Now she's going to make us all itchy by talking about fleas. But it's all for a good cause...and that's keeping our furry friends safe...and flea-free. Dr. Marti Hopson is vice-president of the P.E.I. Veterinary Medical Association.
Thanks to the members of the Companion Animal Welfare Initiative on P.E.I. for their help with our new series "Pets and People". The group is made up of folks from different Island organizations including the P.E.I. Humane Society, the Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre and the Department of Agriculture.
