SEASONAL NOTES: Coughs and Colds
We are entering that time of year when Kennel Cough sometimes rears its head. Make sure your dog has an up-to-date Bordetella shot. Should you notice any symptoms, see attached, please contact us so we can advise other dog owner’s a.s.a.p. and try to keep the pesky bug from spreading. This is also the time when dog’s paws start drying out from cooler temperatures. We recommend that your use “pawstick” (which we carry) or another pad crème to keep your dog’s pads from splitting.
GROOMING: We’re booking 4-weeks out
A reminder to book your next grooming appointment well in advance, especially for the holidays. For the month of December we will ensure maximum space availability for our regular clients by not taking any new clients until January 2015.

OTHER DOGS SERVICES: Need a walker or home visit?
