Vaccinating Your Dog to Keep Them Safe

Vaccinating Your Dog to Keep Them Safe

It is imperative that your canine companion maintains current vaccination records, regardless of whether you plan to lodge them for a prolonged vacation or simply during the day while you are at work. Ensuring that all canine visitors have current vaccinations guarantees a more secure environment for all individuals involved. A red flag is typically raised when researching doggy daycares and encountering a facility that does not mandate immunizations. Due to the high volume of canines entering and exiting these facilities, it is of the utmost importance that clients do not introduce diseases that are frequently preventable and transmissible.

Required Vaccinations

There are three primary vaccinations that are required for your pet to complete in order for them to be allowed to board at our facility or attend any dog daycare.

Bordetella: Your puppy should receive its vaccination by the time it reaches ten weeks of age. This one should be updated annually; however, you will frequently need to request it from your veterinarian due to the fact that it is not always standard. Bordetella offers preventive protection against kennel cough, a highly contagious disease commonly transmitted within canine daycare facilities.

Distemper: It is mandatory for canines to receive the distemper vaccination by the tenth week of age; entry into boarding facilities is typically denied for canines shorter than ten weeks. Distemper shots are given either annually or every three years, according to your veterinarian's recommended routine.

Rabies: Like distemper, the third vaccination should be given either annually or every three years to prevent rabies. All dogs must be vaccinated against rabies, regardless of whether they are staying at a dog hotel. It makes sense to administer all three of these shots once a year if the time is right. These shots are typically given at the same visit.

It is recommended that the mandatory vaccinations be administered ten to two weeks prior to their arrival, although early administration is acceptable up to forty-eight hours before boarding. It will be mandatory for dog owners to provide veterinary records at the check-in counter as verification that their companion has been administered all prescribed vaccinations. While not required, a number of lodging establishments prefer that their canine guests be vaccinated against Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza. Whenever possible, it is critical to prevent ill canines from being boarded. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to ensure that every canine that enters our facility is devoid of parasites and fleas. If you have any questions concerning our requirements, we cordially invite you to reach out to our friendly staff via telephone.
