Required vaccinations: Distemper combination (DHPP), Rabies and Bordetella. If your pet has expired Bordetella, or just vaccinated with Bordetella, it must be given at minimum 3 days prior to a visit if intranasal and 10 days prior to visit if injectable. Canine Influenza vaccination is highly recommended, and is a 2 series injection so talk with your Vet about the appropriate time frame to be given before boarding.
No observations or reports of symptoms of contagious illness.
Due to the nature of upper respiratory infections, we cannot take in dogs that are exhibiting coughing and will need an Owner or caregiver to come and pick up and dog that is coughing. We know this is an inconvenience to the Parent, but a necessary part of keeping our other guests healthy. http://www.oscarspetresort.com/policies.asp Once or twice a year we see strains of coughing/colds pass around Lancaster. We do our best to keep our clients educated if we hear or see any dogs becoming ill with coughing symptoms. Dogs can be carriers and not show symptoms, therefore passing the illness to other dogs unknowingly.
Daycare: All dogs have been healthy this month.
PLEASE parents be diligent to keep your dog home if experiencing any eye or nose discharge or coughing/clearing of their throat. If ill with any of these symptoms parents must keep their dog home from daycare for two weeks.
