VACCINATIONS All dogs must have current vaccinations. An up-to-date record from your veterinarian must be on record before your dog can start doggie day care or boarding. All vaccinations must be completed a minimum of 48 hours before daycare or boarding. Vaccinations required include: *Rabies *Parvo/distemper, *Bordatella or kennel cough (please note that the bordatella shot is only given by your veterinarian upon request and must be administered a minimum of 48 hours before coming into our facility). *Flu Vaccine (recommended but not required) Kennel cough and the flu virus are fairly common ailments in dogs. People tend to associate it with dogs who have recently been boarded (or "kenneled"). However, your dog could contract kennel cough or the flu anywhere they come into contact with other dogs; such as, the groomer, the veterinarian's office, in dog obedience class, at a dog show or any other dog related event. Any time your dog is in the vicinity of an infected dog, the potential exists for infection. Kennel cough and the flu are airborne viruses, which are highly contagious. The incubation period is about 7-10 days, meaning your dog will not display symptoms of illness for about 7-10 days following exposure to the virus.
