We highly recommend all our patients to remain on flea and tick preventative year round, especially due to the unpredictability of flea population rates due to climate change. If your pet is not current on their flea and tick preventative it is possible they may not be permitted to board. Under any circumstances, Sanatoga Animal Hospital is not to be held responsible in the rare occasion that your pet may contract ticks and or fleas during their boarding stay with us. In the rare event that your pet is found to have ticks or fleas during their stay, they will be treated promptly at the owner's expense.
