Pet owners to veterinarians: Tell us about parasite risks


CAPC study reveals that 90 percent of pet owners want to be alerted to high incidence of parasites in their area.

In 2014, in an effort called Connecting with Today's Clients, the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC), supported by Bayer HealthCare, surveyed U.S. veterinarians, veterinary team members and pet owners to gain some insight into whether all groups are on the same page when it comes to parasite control.

They interviewed 401 practicing veterinarians and 263 veterinary team members who work at least 30 hours a week in practices that see 75 percent or more small animals in a nonemergency setting. They also interviewed 2,000 dog or cat owners who had taken their pets to a veterinarian within the past two years.

Here are some highlights from the study, which signal a need for better communication with clients about parasite control and concerns in your area.
