BBF Pet Policy
Fecal Exams and Prevention Programs
The only worm prevention programs accepted by BBF in lieu of annual fecal tests or de-worming are medications that are LABELED to prevent roundworms and hookworms. Some examples are Heartgard Plus, Iverhart Plus, Sentinel, Trifexis, Advantage Multi, and Revolution (cats only).
However, annual fecal tests are still encouraged by BBF (even if your pet is on one of these programs) because there are other health problems that can be detected from these tests. A positive result for non-contagious parasites may not disqualify the animal.
Flea prevention programs such as Revolution, Advantage, Program, Front Line, Biospot, etc., do not prevent or kill roundworms and hookworms. These types of worms can lie dormant in fecal for weeks or even months. Note that regular Heartgard kills only heartworm larvae and will not be accepted.
Distemper/Parvo or FVRCP
Every dog or cat must be either vaccinated for this, or, if deemed appropriate by the animal's veterinarian, protective titers will be accepted.
State law requires dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies, regardless of whether they are an indoor or outdoor pet. Titers will not be accepted for rabies.
