Small handbook gathering all the life cycles of the most common ectoparasites in dogs and cats. Similar parasites are grouped together based on their life cycle and, consequently, their sensitivity to parasiticides. The aim is to provide readers with key aspects of parasite control and prevention, highlighting those diseases that can be transmitted by them. Geographic distribution maps are also included.
