Here’s Kaylin with her dog, Widgeon. Kaylin wants to keep her Golden Retriever healthy, so we administer routine vaccinations (shots) to prevent him from getting sick. Kaylin also gives Widgeon a pill once a month to protect him from parasites (worms, fleas, heartworms). This medicine protects Kaylin, too, because some of these parasites infect people. Luckily, the shots don’t hurt very much and the pill tastes good so Widgeon doesn’t mind!
