Say your goodbyes at home, and allow your pet to settle in as quickly as possible. Our friendly kennel staff will look after your pet as if he/she was their own, and help them quickly accustomise to their new quarters.
Advise the staff on any special characteristics your pet may have. For example:
Canine Cough, also known as infectious tracheobronchitis, is one of the most common respiratory diseases in dogs and is highly contagious, due to being an airborne virus. Dogs can become infected with Canine Cough wherever they gather, such as in parks, dog runs, obedience classes, dog shows or kennels. Even if your dog is vaccinated there is still some risk of infection.
The only sign should be a harsh hacking cough, which often finishes with gagging. “Tracheobronchitis should be suspected whenever the characteristic cough suddenly develops about 10 days after exposure to other susceptible or affected dogs. Usually severity diminishes during the first 5 days, but the disease persists for 10-20 days.” (The Merck Veterinary Manual, 8th Edition, 1998. Merck & Co Inc. p, 1125.)
It is recommended that your dog be kept as quiet as possible, as undue stress or excitement can cause these symptoms to become worse. More urgent treatment is required if signs such as lethargy, loss of appetite, or greenish nasal discharge occurs and the cough persists. If these symptoms appear, phone for a time to see your vet as soon as possible.
No amount of supervision, sanitation, or personalized care can prevent a dog from “catching” an airborne virus. All that a good boarding kennel can do is to strongly recommend immunisation against tracheobronchitis, refuse to board any obviously sick dog, listen and watch for any signs of sickness, and make sure that any dog requiring veterinary attention receives it as quickly as possible. (Strangely, the dog with parainfluenza alone may not appear ill, yet is contagious). Professional boarding kennels would justifiably expect owners to accept the financial responsibility for such care. Your PIAA member is devoted to your pet’s well being.
