*** ATTENTION ***

 

As of July 2017, Sonoma Valley and the surrounding areas have been experiencing a high volume of cases of Tracheal Mycoplasma commonly known as Kennel Cough.

 

It is a contagious cough among dogs which, like the human flu, cannot always be covered by a vaccine.

 

Please take this into consideration when planning on boarding your pet and consult your local veterinarian for more information and precautionary measures.

 

Here at Maranda Ranch, we are taking every precaution necessary as your pet's health is very important to us. As always, we strive to maintain a safe and healthy environment for your pet.

 

Thank you!
