Does my dog need to be vaccinated?
Yes. Your dog must be up to date with all it’s annual vaccinations and copies provided prior to your dog’s stay. Kennel Cough vaccine is not insisted upon. It is also essential that your is up to date with worm and flea treatment before being placed with us. ‘Frontline Spot on Dog’ for flea treatment and prevention is recommended (available from your vet). If there is any medical reason or your dog is not vaccinated by choice then it must be Titre tested and a certificate of proof given. Please discuss with us by calling 0800 2300 266.
In the United Kingdom, for most dogs, the recommendation is to be a once yearly vaccine against Leptospirosis, with a booster against Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus every three years. Other vaccines, such as Kennel Cough and Rabies, may also need to be given, depending on the dog’s activities. We do not insist on Kennel Cough and do not need Rabies jabs.
