Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 23, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4A The Cedar Rapids Gazettr: San., June 23, 1974 it's the Humane Thing To Do By Susan Welsh Humane Society If you are planning to leave your dog or cat in a boardint; kennc! while on ho sure to select one wisely. Check the classified section of your telephone directory and if pos- sible, talk with other people who have had their pets hoarded. Then, visit the ken- nels prior to leaving your pet to see what services are offered and to look over the facilities. 1. Look for cleanliness. Let your nose he your guide. In a well run kennel, you won't find offensive odors, accumulated debris, leftover food, dirty water dishes or pens and runs that obviously haven't been "picked 2. The outside exercise runs should be of concrete or a good bed of gravel. The concrete is easily hospd down and the chemicals contained in the gravel itself are sanitizing. 3. The inside runs or pens should also be constructed of a material which is easy to scrub daily. Wood, dirt or sand flooring are not materials which can be sanitized effec- tively or easily. Are the inside facilities well ventilated and free from drafts? 4. Find out if there is always someone on the premises and if the kennel is staffed with ma- ture and responsible people. 5. Check on the security of the kennel. The runs and pens should be strong enough to keep the animals from chewing through, digging out or jump- ing and climbing over. The gates need to have good strong latches as some dogs and cats are masters at escaping. 6. A boarding kennel can't possibly offer all the comforts of home, but your pet should have comfortable and healthful accommodations. Each animal should have his own individual pen or run outside for daily exercise and fresh air. The in- side area should be large enough for him to stand up and to move around in. 7. Although a cat does not require as much space and exercise as a dog, his Jiving quarters need to be large enough for his own individual litter box and feeding dishes, as well as plenty of space left to stretch and to sleep. 8. A well run kennel takes precautions to -protect the health of all the animals boarded. They should require that each pet has been inoculated for the infectious diseases. Find out how the kennel operator handles an emergency or an illness. There are also details which the pet owner should be res- ponsible for when he is leaving his pet at a boarding kennel. 1. A standard menu is fed to all the boarders in a kennel or a cattery. If your pet is on a special diet or you wish him to have some other type of feed, you will need to supply it for his stay. 2. The same rule applies for medications. If a pet is on a routine medication be sure and provide the medication for his entire stay as well as written instructions on how it is to be given. Leave the name and phone number of your veterinarian with the kennel operator for any emergency situation that could arise. 3. If your pet likes to jump or climb or fight, be sure to warn the kennel personnel so they can take the necessary precau- tions. 4. Don't be shocked if the kennel operator checks your pet thoroughly for fleas or other external parasites after all, you don't want him to come home with this type of problem. 5. Understand what is and what is not included in the hoarding fee. Food, shelter, cleanliness and a little in- dividual attention for your pet is considered standard service. Extra fees are charged for grooming, clipping, training, pick up and delivery to and from your home, as well as any special care or treatment a pet may need. 6. During the vacation season and holiday weekends, you must plan ahead as the kennels arc very busy during these times. Make your reservation well in advance to assure the availability of space for your pet. 7. Don't ask that your dog and cat he kept together. This is very impractical, and the dog and cat facilities should not be in the same area. Ostrich Roar The male ostrich gives a deep roar like that of a lion, but with a strange hissing sound.
