Notes: Each dealer shall maintain programs of adequate veterinary care that include the use of appropriate methods to prevent, control, diagnose, and treat diseases and injuries. There were two expired medical materials at the facility during this inspection. These included one bottle of Tylosin (expiration date 4/03) and one container of Corona Virus Vaccines (expiration date 7/03). Expired medical materials must not be used as this could affect the health of the dogs and may not be effective in controlling and/or treating diseases and injuries. These items must be disposed of to ensure that expired products are not used and to ensure that adequate veterinary care is being administered. This item was corrected during the inspection.

Each dealer shall maintain records that contain all required information concerning all dogs in his or her possession, which includes the official USDA number for each dog and the vehicle and driver's license number of the person to whom dogs are acquired, if non-USDA licensed. There was one adult Boxer acquired on 4/11/03 and two female Dalmatians acquired on 12/14/03 for which the driver's and vehicle license numbers were not obtained and recorded. The facility needs to obtain this information for any dog acquired from an unlicensed source. The driver's and vehicle license numbers need to be recorded on future dogs acquired to allow for proper tracking of the dogs.

In addition, the facility has approval to use microchipping as a means of identifying the dogs; however, the microchip numbers are not recorded on the Record of Dogs on Hand (APHIS Form 7005). The official USDA dog number needs to be recorded on the inventory records to ensure for proper identification. All required information needs to be maintained on the facility records to ensure that they are complete and accurate. Correct by 2/21/04.

Supplies of bedding must be stored off the floor and away from the walls, to allow cleaning underneath and around the supplies. All open supplies of bedding must be kept in leakproof containers with tightly fitting lids to prevent contamination. The unopened bags of bedding in the Red Barn whelping building were being stored on the floor at the time of this inspection.

In addition, the two barrels of bedding (shavings) in the Big Dog Puppy building do not have lids on the containers. Unopened supplies of bedding needs to be stored off the floor and away from the wall to allow for cleaning around the supplies and to protect the supplies from contamination. Opened supplies of bedding need to be stored in containers with lids to protect from contamination by vermin and other pests. The unopened bags of bedding need to be moved off the floor and the opened supplies need to have lids covering the supplies. This item was corrected during the inspection.
