Hit online reality series gets up-close with veterinarians and the fleas and ticks they find on pets
OLD LYME, Conn., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new episode from the popular YouTube series "Veterinarians On Call" promises to make pet owners squirm as veterinarians find blood-feeding fleas and ticks on pet cats and dogs during actual appointments recorded for the series. That episode, one of six new videos released this season, shows the importance of regular check-ups to keep pets healthy and prevent serious illnesses.
Veterinarians On Call is one of YouTube's most popular animal video series, logging more than half a million views since its 2011 launch on channel www.YouTube.com/VetsOnCall or www.YouTube.com/VeterinariansOnCall. The series has posted 24 videos to date, with at least 16 more in production.
The video "Blood-feeding fleas and ticks a risk to pets and humans" features veterinarians from Countryside Vet Clinic in New York State examining pets suffering from flea and tick infestations. Fleas and ticks are more than "nuisance" insects that pets can bring into the home -- they can make pets ill with anemia, Lyme disease, and other illnesses. The video's key take-away is that pet owners should work with their veterinarian to prevent infestations before they happen.
