Vaccination Policy

There are many reason why we are strict with our vaccination policy including the health and safety of the dogs, insurance requirements and general best practices.  You must provide veterinary proof of your full and current vaccinations as listed below prior to your dog entering the dog centre at any time:

  • Dogs over 5 months old must have their annual Distemper/Parvo vaccination.  All other puppies must have their second set of Distemper/Parvo vaccinations
  • All dogs must have their Bordetella vaccination (kennel cough)
  • Dogs over 1 year old must have their Rabies vaccination
  • There must be a 10 day period between the time of the Bordetella  vaccinations and the visit
  • There must be a 4 day period between the time of the Distemper/Parvo and/or Rabies vaccination and the visit
  • Any dog showing signs of fleas or ticks will be immediately turned away
  • Refunds will not be given for any dog refused due to vaccinations, fleas, ticks, etc.

Why we require the buffer period

We have spoken to several vets throughout the mainland (including the specialized animal emergency hospital) and found that opinions differ about the amount of time required after vaccinations with different logic behind each opinion (i.e. age, type of shot, administration method, time between vaccinations, etc.).  We’ve elected to go with a standard 10 day buffer period after the Bordetella vaccination and 4 day period for all other shots for the following reasons: to ensure that the immune system is back up to where it should be, to ensure that there are no adverse side effects of the shots and to ensure that anything that may be contagious (either prior to the shots or from the shot itself) has had a chance to pass.  We’ve made this policy after much homework and with the health and safety of all dogs in mind.
