Important Message for the Pet-Parents of Our Boarding and Grooming Dogs
Recent outbreaks of Canine Influenza near our area have prompted us to change our vaccination requirements for the dogs who board and groom in our hospital. Canine Influenza is highly contagious respiratory disease, which can cause serious illness and even death. An outbreak of Canine Influenza in our hospital would be serious enough that we would have to temporarily close our facility – rendering us unable to serve you and your pets for a time.
In order to protect your dog from this disease, we now require that any dogs who stay in our kennel for boarding or grooming must be vaccinated for Canine Influenza. This vaccine must now be kept up to date along with rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella (kennel cough).
Given the highly contagious nature of this disease, if your dog boards at another facility or visits another groomer, we still highly recommend that he/she be vaccinated for Canine Influenza.
