Required Vaccinations: Distemper combination (DHPP), Rabies and Bordetella. ALL vaccines must be given 2 weeks before arriving! 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. Please discuss with your Vet of the risks, effectiveness, and side effects of vaccines.
ALL dogs MUST have a annual fecal check (Daycampers required twice a year). ALL dogs MUST be on an intestinal parasite control as well flea & tick control.
We have a few guests this past week having symptoms of diarrhea, no fever, good appetite while boarding.
~ If your dog is sensitive to change and prone to having change of bowels, please consider speaking to your Vet about preventative care for your pet.
Due to the nature of upper respiratory infections, we cannot take in pets that are exhibiting coughing, sneezing, and/or eye discharge and will need an Owner or caregiver to come and pick up any pet that is coughing or showing signs of upper respiratory congestion. 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 Boarding & Daycare 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. If you visit any pet care facility, vet office, dog park, local dog events, and any pet store, your dog is at risk. No vet bill will be reimbursed for any contagious illness due to the nature of contagious dog illnesses.
All guests have been healthy.
Reminder to make sure your daycamper has had his/her bi-annual fecal check completed. Make sure your daycamper is on intestinal parasite control program by your Vet. Thank you!
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.
