Topic Pets, Parks, and Parasites

Over the last 10 years, there has been a 74% increase in dog parks across the United States. As popularity rises, the health risks to both pet dogs and their owners were largely unknown. A recent national study has provided insight into the prevalence of parasites at dog parks in 30 metropolitan areas. This presentation will go over the risk of parasite infections in dog parks with a focus on how transmission occurs and recommendations to support the safe use of these hubs of canine social activity.
