Vaccines, Flea Control and General Health

 Vaccinations

Parkland requires verification of current vaccination from a veterinarian for rabies, distemper/parvo, bordatella (canine cough) and Canine Influenza 8 prior to check-in. Feline guests must have current vaccinations for rabies and respiratory/distemper.

Please make sure your vaccinations are up to date when making a reservation.

Flea and Tick Control

Because so many of our guests are on monthly flea and tick control, we do not have a blanket entry bath/dip requirement. All of our guests are fully inspected at check-in. If fleas, flea eggs or ticks are found, an entry bath will be required and additional charges will be incurred. We use all natural products for this purpose. They take a little longer in the application phase than chemical dips, but are just as effective and far safer to use.

The health and happiness of our guests is of primary importance to us! As such, it is monitored daily and any concerns are addressed and discussed with the owners. It is not unusual for us to be the first to notice an ear infection, or a lump or growth that needs to be attended to. And, it is not unusual for us to be the first outsider to bring out the playful spirit in a very shy one. This is not only our job…it is our passion.
