The Companion Animal Parasite Council is a not-for-profit who's goal is to educate the public about parasite protection and control...So, each summer parasitologists hit the road - to go to the people - traveling in the parasite-mobile. Seriously, they do an amazing job of reaching professionals by bringing experts to lecture about the latest research, and similarly reach out to the public - appearing at events, from a Cubs' game in Chicago to city festivals and dog parks, as well as making media appearance. It's important because parasites can threaten pets' lives, and even affect people - making us pretty sick, especially kids. Thing is, mostly parasites are preventatable. Like CAPC on Facebook HERE.
