At Pawderosa Ranch, the safety and health of our furry friends is of utmost importance to us. You have probably heard that there is a respiratory illness affecting dogs in different parts of the country, and we want our clients to know that we have measures in place to monitor and maintain the health of our Ranchers.
Each morning, 365 days a year, every bunk is thoroughly cleaned with a safe and effective disinfectant to ensure a healthy living environment. Our bunks and facilities are then cleaned continuously throughout the day and all water bowls and dishes are a cleaned and sanitized after use. Upon check-in, our Canine Care Specialists conduct a comprehensive evaluation of each pup’s overall health. If a dog shows signs of coughing/sneezing or has watery eyes, we immediately isolate them, and the pup’s parent or emergency contact is contacted to retrieve the pup. In addition to our daily cleaning protocols and health evaluations, we also require all pups to be up-to-date on their vaccinations. This helps to prevent the spread of illnesses and keeps all our furry friends safe and healthy. Our team consists of trained professionals who are always on the lookout for any signs of illness or distress in our Ranchers. If a pup is not feeling well, they are given the necessary care and attention to ensure a speedy recovery.
We want to continue providing quality care to your pets, and we appreciate your support in keeping all our Ranchers healthy. If you notice your pup acting ill, has goopy eyes or is sneezing/coughing, please keep them home and isolated from other dogs. If they stop eating or have difficulty breathing, a vet visit is warranted. Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) has so far not seen an increase in canine respiratory cases however, please remain alert and act quickly if you believe your dog might have contracted an upper respiratory illness. Current information (https://tinyurl.com/3wy8n85a) states that this wave of illness has been in the U.S. and Canada for at least a year and it’s most likely more severe than usual for a couple of reasons: 1) it may be due to a combination of multiple pathogens, 2) many dogs have a lower level of resistance due to not attending daycare or boarding where they typically acquire an exposure immunity over time, and 3) there has been a decrease in canine vaccination rates.
We understand that our clients trust us with their beloved pets, and we take that responsibility very seriously. By working together, we can ensure that our furry guests stay happy and healthy for years to come. Come and experience the caring Pawderosa Ranch difference for yourself!
