What’s New at Applebrook?

Our facility is proud to be Heroes for Healthy PetsTM Certified! This means we are trained in best practices to help prevent and manage infectious diseases to help keep your pet healthy.

Over the past few years, the incidence of infectious disease outbreaks in dogs in the United States has increased, especially with Dog Flu. Dog Flu has been reported in 46 states and as of February 22nd, there have been more than 490 positive cases of Dog Flu in California and Nevada alone.*

Experts agree that the best way to combat this growing risk is through education and proactive healthcare for dogs. A better understanding of infectious diseases and preventative care, including strategic vaccination, and cleaning and disinfection protocols can help.

We have pledged to uphold the Heroes for Healthy PetsTM Disease Management Certification Program’s standards. Our first priority will always be the health and safety of pets, and our certified status is an example of our strong commitment to clients.
