We Protect Your Pets

What it is

Canine Influenza is spread by an infected dog through the air and through contaminated surfaces.  While it can cause death, it rarely does among otherwise healthy dogs.

Do you need to worry?

Four Seasons is taking precautions to ensure that your dog is safe while boarding with us.

What we are doing

  1. Our dog enclosures are cleaned every day with a pet-safe chemical solution that kills the flu virus. All feeding and water bowls are cleaned with the same solution and thoroughly rinsed.
     
  2. Employees wash their hands after handling pets or bowls. In addition, all air handling units are equipped with ultra-violet lights that destroy any airborne virus or bacteria, including the Canine Flu virus.
     
  3. And finally, all Four Seasons employees have been trained to look for obvious symptoms of the flu virus in arriving dogs.  Dogs that are obviously sick will not be boarded.

the bottom line

While the spread of disease is possible in any environment where dogs are in a group, the risk of your pet contracting Canine Influenza at Four Seasons is exceptionally small.

WE RESERVE  THE RIGHT TO DO A BRIEF PHYSICAL EXAM OF YOUR PET UPON ARRIVAL.  PLEASE NOTE THAT PETS THAT APPEAR TO BE UNHEALTHY OR SICK WILL NOT BE ADMITTED.
