In addition to the shots below, we ask that you get your pet vaccinated for canine influenza and Leptospirosis. OR - Quarantine your pet 10 days prior to dropping off - no walks, dog parks, other boarding facilities, visits with friends' pets, contact with neighbors' pets.
Dogs - Bordetella, Distemper, Parvo and Rabies Certificate
Cats - FVRCP, FeLV for outdoor cats, Rabies Certificate
1) Bordetella helps prevent canine cough most commonly known as kennel cough. While the vaccine does not guarantee your dog won't contract it, it decreases their chances. Dogs who board regularly are less likely to get sick if exposed.
2) Distemper and Parvo come in a 5 in 1 shot also shown as DAPP, DA2P and DHLPP.
3) Rabies Certificate - not just a line showing that they received their rabies vaccine and when it expires. The county is requiring an actual Rabies Certification for our file and here's what your veterinarian is required to provide you:
- Certificate of Vaccination—Information to Be Shown.
A licensed veterinarian in the Department's jurisdiction who vaccinates a dog or cat against rabies must immediately issue a certificate of vaccination
signed by the veterinarian to the owner or custodian of the dog or cat,
and a duplicate certificate to the Director, stating:
A. The name and address of the owner or custodian of the vaccinated dog or cat;
B. The type of vaccine used, the name of the manufacturer, the manufacturer's serial
or lot number, and the date of the vaccination; and
C. The breed, age, color, and sex of the vaccinated dog or cat.
