Boarding Requirements and Helpful Information
Parasite Prevention and Requirements
*If your dog is being treated monthly, an annual negative Heartworm Test and an annual negative Fecal Screen is required in addition to documentation from a veterinarian or online receipt showing purchase of monthly Heartworm and Gastrointestinal worm medications.
*If your dog is NOT being treated monthly, an annual negative Heartworm Test is required. In addition, a negative fecal screen must be run within 2 weeks of arrival every time the dog is boarded.
*All dogs require a negative Giardia (flotation and antigen) Fecal Screening every 6 months. (As a precaution: if this test is positive, it takes at least 5-7 days to treat and then retest, so please plan accordingly)
Documentation from a veterinarian or purchase receipt stating participation in monthly or every 3 month flea and tick control program is preferred
Within the US, it is recommended that every dog receive a monthly parasite prevention medication in order to protect them from common gastrointestinal (GI) worms and heartworm (HW) infections (which have been diagnosed in Oregon). In addition, it is necessary to perform an annual HW and fecal exam to ensure that the treatment is working. This is often performed during your pet's annual exam.
