The Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC)

The Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) is an independent council of veterinarians and other animal health care professionals established to create guidelines for the optimal control of internal and external parasites that threaten the health of pets and people. It brings together broad expertise in parasitology, internal medicine, public health, veterinary law, private practice, and association leadership.

Initially convened in 2002, CAPC was formed with the express purpose of changing the way veterinary professionals and pet owners approach parasite management. The CAPC advocates best practices for protecting pets from parasitic infections and reducing the risk of zoonotic parasite transmission. The council has four major objectives:

  1. adoption of practices and procedures to protect pets from infections by parasites;
  2. adoption of practices and procedures to reduce the risk of transmission of zoonotic (transmittable from animals to humans) parasites from pets to people;
  3. collaboration among pet owners, veterinarians, and physicians to control infections by parasites; and
  4. collaboration with other groups that share the common interests of parasite control and animal and human health.

(CAPC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting your family and your pets from parasites and zoonotic disease. For more information, visit
