FORT MYERS, Fla.- A Nationwide pet epidemic is forcing a Fort Myers dog resort to temporarily close up and clean up. The business ''The Dog Resort' sent letters to clients notifying of the flu-like virus passing through pups at their facility.
Christina Bryan spends most days with our four legged friends at her business 'I let your dogs out.' She said a sickly situation with her own pup inspired her to enter the animal field.
"Years ago I had my dog in boarding and I came back and he had diarrhea and he had some of these symptoms like this whole virus." Bryan said.
It was those symptoms that workers at 'The Dog Resort' on Metro Parkway said have been showing on their pets too. A letter was sent to clients notifying of the virus and that the business would be closed from November 7th-20th while the facility is deep cleaned and sanitized. Owners didn't want to comment on camera but Collier County Domestic Animal Services Sr. Shelter Technician Tammy Wolny said it is pretty common.
