Disease Prevention (Dog Parks)

You can often tell if a shelter is good if it provides all animals with proper vaccinations, but did you know that diseases can come in everyday places that your pet ventures?


Have you ever brought your dog to a dog park? If you have, you probably have seen how some dogs are the opposite of friendly. If your dog has gotten into a dog fight, here are some things you should know:

  1. Always bring your dogs medical records.
  2. Ask for the other dogs’ shot records to make sure that the dog is fully vaccinated.
  3. Check your dog for wounds.
    1. If there are wounds, bring your dog to the veterinarian.

If you follow these steps, you can make sure that your dog is safe. The last thing that you want is for your dog to be infected by a disease.
