Why Vaccinations Matter

Vaccinations are a crucial aspect of responsible pet ownership. They help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and protect your pet from serious illnesses that can be costly to treat and, in some cases, fatal. By staying up-to-date on your pet’s vaccinations, you not only safeguard their health but also contribute to the overall well-being of the pet community.

Canine Vaccination Requirements

For dogs staying at our facility, the following vaccinations are required:

  • DAPP/DAPP+L: Protects against Distemper, Leptospirosis, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus
  • Bordetella: Guards against Kennel Cough, a highly contagious respiratory infection
  • Rabies: Required by law and protects against this deadly virus

If your pet is not up to date on any of the required vaccines, they will need to be brought up to date at the owner’s expense, unless our Veterinarian decides otherwise.
