Dogs with contagious diseases or parasites are not allowed at the Cheddar’s Pets. We are happy to provide care for injured dogs or those with special medical or health needs, but for the safety and health of other dogs at Cheddar’s, we cannot accommodate dogs with contagious disease or parasites.
Common diseases or parasites include, but are not limited to: bordatella (kennel cough), conjunctivitus, and intestinal parasites/worms. Symptoms of disease include: coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, discharge from the eyes, nose, mouth, and/or visible parasites in the stool.
If a dog shows signs of disease or parasites while in our care, we will isolate him from the other dogs and the owner will be asked to bring him to the vet for a check up. The dog is welcome to come back to Cheddar’s Pets only after the vet declares him healthy and free of disease or parasites.
If a dog arrives at Cheddar’s Pets showing signs of disease or parasites, or if a dog is actively being treated for disease or parasites, the dog is not allowed to stay. This is for the comfort, health, and safety of your dog and the other dogs at Cheddar’s Pets. Please call for more information about this policy.
