Flea Prevention We require that all guests are CURRENT on their flea prevention and can only accept flea prevention brands APPROVED by our veterinarian. If you selected 'none,' or 'other' or it is determined that your pet is not current on his/her flea prevention, The Retreat staff will require your pet to have current prevention applied upon arrival. Parasite control We require that your pet has received a fecal analysis (centrifuged with giardia testing) within the past 6 months to ensure that he/she is free of internal parasites which could be potentially contagious to other guests and staff. THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL BOARDING GUESTS AND PLAY CARE GUESTS. If a fecal test determines that your pet is positive for intestinal parasites one of our doctors can prescribe either a dewormer or antibiotic for treatment. Any dog exhibiting signs of GI disease must be immediately removed from playcare and cannot resume playcare until symptoms have been treated/resolved, whether medically or on their own. In order to help accommodate boarding needs for your pet, we will allow for guests that are NON-ELIGIBLE for Playcare (within the guidelines of this giardia policy) to board in our Retreat Rooms only, they will however not be allowed to participate in Playcare during their boarding stay and will be walked in designated relief rooms to allow for proper isolation of parasite.
