LARGO - A Paws Rescue Group volunteer happened to be at the right place at the right time recently when a puppy was thrown from a pickup onto the side of the road in Anona Heights in Largo.

Karen Altieri of Largo said she immediately stopped and the dazed dog ran into her arms, but there was no time to get the license-plate number of the truck.

“To have witnessed this horrific act by a human was shocking. I’ve read about these things before but to see it right in front of me was incredible,” Altieri said about the terrier-Italian greyhound mix who is nearly 1 year old and about 14 pounds.

“My cat never leaves the house, but he sure does love an afternoon nap in the sunshine on the lanai. He seems fine. Does he really need a vet visit every year? Does he need shots? Why does he need a fecal or flea/heartworm prevention if he is an indoor cat?”

Does my indoor cat need flea and heartworm prevention?

There are some exposure risks you may not think about even if your cat is indoor only. For example, many families have cats and dogs. In this instance, it is important to have both pets on flea preventative. The same fleas that can jump on the dog while it is using the bathroom outside can easily come inside the house and jump onto the cat.
