If your dog is already scheduled to be at Good Dog for daycare or boarding on June 27, they can be seen by the BoosterPet team during their stay.

HOT TIP from BoosterPet's veterinarian, Dr. Kobi Johnson
I love a dog that gets out and plays, whether at a daycare, on the trail, or in their own backyard! Parasite prevention and yearly fecal exams are more important than ever; however, and our pets need protection to make playtime safe. The most problematic parasites West of the Cascades are fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites such as roundworm, hookworm, and giardia. Living in a moist, temperate area with dense pet and wildlife populations creates a hospitable environment where these parasites can flourish. Even Heartworm Disease is gaining traction here. Historically considered a disease endemic to Southern parts of the country, global climate shifts, natural disasters, and canine migration though rescue efforts have pushed this problem farther North and West. In 2020, Washington State reported 733 positives cases of Heartworm in dogs, up from 466 cases in 2019. As of April 2021, 183 cases have already been reported. Yikes!
Because parasites live partially in the environment and partially in or on our pets, it is important to consider both the environmental and societal conditions that allow certain parasites to thrive, such as climate, moisture, migration, population density, pet density, and presence of rodents and wildlife. BoosterPet makes obtaining parasite prevention and testing easy and affordable; pets can leave our mobile clinics with complete protection.
