Update About Giardia in the area

We'd like to inform our clients about the recent cases of Giardia in the area.  We want to ensure that you all remain up to date on what is going on at Hero K9 & Wellness Centre and to ensure everyone is having a positive experience while using our services.

There is currently an outbreak of Giardia in the area - as of February 2021.

As you should all know, we encourage that while your dog(s) are attending our facility that you attempt to avoid visiting the dog parks on a regular basis.

This is due to concerns with young puppies and senior dogs who either do not have a fully developed immune system or a weakened immune system due to age.


We have been informed of contaction of Giardia at the Kemptville dog park, and would ask that you avoid that area until we can be sure it is safe. 

We have had our facility, indoors and outdoors, as well as our pool thoroughly cleaned as per the guidelines provided to us.

For our clients, please check your Pawfinity account to sign your updated liability waiver that must be signed to continue to allow your pup and/or dog to attend our facility.

Please understand that our highest priority is to ensure a safe and clean environment for your pups and/or dogs to enjoy!

We appreciate everyone’s continued efforts to ensure their pups and/or dogs are healthy and free of all communicable diseases when attending our facility.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
