Animal Safety Tips

Kennel Cough

 

If you know your dog has kennel cough, please cease entering the dog park until your vet clears your dog for socializing. 

 

Signs of Kennel Cough:   If your dog is hacking or constantly making noises that make it sound like they are choking on something, they may have case of kennel cough, or canine infectious tracheobronchitis.  Although kennel cough can sound terrible, most of the time it is not a serious condition, and most dogs will recover without treatment.  Dogs "catch" Kennel Cough when they inhale bacteria or virus particles into their respiratory tract.  This tract is normally lined with a coating of mucus that traps infectious particles, bu there are a number of factors that can weaken this protection and make dogs prone to kennel cough infection, which results in inflammation of the larynx, (voice box) and trachea (windpipe).

Please be thoughtful of the other dogs enjoying the park and don't pass Kennel Cough

 

 

Conflicts Among Dogs

 

Sometimes, aggression between dogs occurs.  In the event of such an incident, please immediately separate the dogs into separate play areas.

If an injury occurs or persistent conflicts take place, the Gering Police Department can be contacted at:

308.436.6666 or 308.436.5088.

Thank you for helping us keep the park incident free.
