We ask owners to take responsibility for their dog’s actions. The release of liability document signed at registration provides more detail.
Dogs are animals, and despite the best training, their behavior cannot be 100% predicted.
Incidents of injury are extremely low.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
You bring a small (tbsp.) and fresh sample of your dog’s poo to the vet. The vet performs 1 of 3 types of tests, or sends the sample to a lab.
Worms are intestinal parasites. The most common are roundworm, whipworm, hookworm, coccidian, and giardia. Heartworm is a different parasite impacting the heart and is much more serious than intestinal parasites.
Microscopic worm larvae can be anywhere. Dogs pick them up by eating contaminated soil, drinking from puddles and, yes, eating an infected dog’s poo.
You can see some worms in your dog’s poo with your naked eye. If worms are not treated, they can lead to diarrhea, bloating, and emaciation in your dog.
Your veterinarian prescribes a medicinal powder to sprinkle on your dog’s food. You must test again at the end of the treatment to ensure that it worked.
