Vacation!

Wow! Next Sunday is the official first day of summer, but around our resort, we can tell vacation season is already here.

The last two weeks have seen quite a few area schools get out for summer or even graduate. By the end of next week, all area schools will be on vacation. That means, you better be planning a vacation for your family, including your furry members. Whether you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World, New York, or even Europe, we know your furry friend will love their summer vacation at their favorite resort–VCA Kennel Club Resort & Spa!

Remember, we have everything they need to have a fun-filled vacation. For our canine guests, our warm water pool is always the perfect temperature–cozy during cooler morning or refreshingly cool on warmer afternoons. Your cat will purr with delight during Cuddle Time each afternoon. Afterwards, she'll return to her sunny Window apartment and day dream the rest of the day.

All of our staff is looking forward to an exciting summer and can't wait to see you and your pets.

Flea Control Application

It’s still summer! Does your furry friend have flea and other parasite protection? This is the time of year it is needed the most. Fleas especially love warm and humid weather and an infestation can easily get out of control. Almost all flea control products, whether they are topical or oral, are to be administered monthly.

Don’t forget to apply topical products properly. Products such as our SimpleGuard, or Advantage and Frontline need to applied on the skin for it to work best. We love the fine tipped applicator of SimpleGuard–it allows you to really cut through your pet’s coat and apply it to the skin.

Remember, all flea control products work best when applied correctly and regularly.
