Canine Influenza Vaccine (Dog Flu)

Kennel Cough Vaccine may not be enough
to protect our precious pets

Click to read

Gastroenteritis is just a fancy way to say “stomach and Bowel” Pain.  Pets may be nauseous, observed as drooling, vomiting, or just not eating.  They may also exhibit abdominal pain observed as groaning, crying out, diarrhea, constipation or straining with blood or mucous present in their stool. 

When treating your pets, we are always looking for a cause in order to treat successfully and prevent another episode. Fecal material helps to rule out parasites or bacteria, but we are cautious of diet changes, additional new treats, traveling to new areas, or exposure to new routines, people, or other animals.  Allergies to a food substance are actually quite common.  Usually it is a protein (beef, pork, chicken) or a carbohydrate source (rice, wheat, oat).  These pets may also exhibit skin irritation and itches or recurrent ear infections.  Sometimes the problem is seasonal and may be associated with pollen.  Be ware of patterns! 

Water sources can be especially incriminating (i.e. ponds, birdbaths, rain water down spouts).  If you own a bird, also be aware of its fecal droppings or seed materials.  Wild animals’ fecal material may be a factor with some dogs. 

We also consider foreign bodies like string, pieces of toys or clothing, especially with cats or new puppies. 

Lastly, as pets’ age, we must consider metabolic conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, liver problems and cancer.

Precious Pets is an open and free environment.  We encourage the dogs to play and socialize together. During these activities it is possible that the dogs may sustain minor nicks, cuts, scrapes or abrasions. Also your dog’s stay it may come in contact with animal feces in the suite or the playground. If in “direct” contact with animal feces, it’s possible that some dogs may have a reaction to the parasite.   Even though every effort is made to insure that your dog eats the provided food or treats, it is possible to eat its’ roommates food.  Many dogs share the same water bowls.  The bowls are cleaned multiple times a day but there is still a chance that bacteria can be transferred through the water. Precious Pets is not responsible for kennel cough, diarrhea, fleas or ticks.  Nor are we responsible for any medical expenses.
