ATTENTION ALL DAYCARE CLIENTS! We have had 6 dogs come down with a mild cough over the past two weeks and two dogs from same family have Pneumonia:( If your dog is experiencing any signs of a cough, sneezing or runny nose, please keep your dog at home and consult your vet if symptoms worsen. We are vigilant about keeping our daycare clean and disinfect surfaces regularly but we haven't figured out a way to actually disinfect the dogs yet ;(
