We require documented proof of the following vaccinations on file prior to any dog visiting the hotel.
DHLPP - This is a vaccination that covers a group of diseases, including Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Para influena. You may see this vaccine listed as “DAPP, DHPP, DHLPP, DAP-2,” or other variants. Whatever combination your veterinarian uses, it must include Distemper and Parvovirus. These vaccines are usually good for 1 year at a time.
Rabies – Protects against the Rabies virus. First rabies shot for puppies is usually good for one year, and after that it is usually good for 3 years at a time.
Canine Influenza or dog flu-H3N2 Is a virus that is easily spread from infected dogs to other dogs by direct contact, nasal secretions (barking, coughing, sneezing), contaminated objects (kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collar or leashes) and by people moving between infected and uninfected dogs. The symptoms of canine influenza resemble Kennel Cough-Infectious tracheobronchitis in dogs. Symptoms of influenza include persistent coughing, fever, lethargy, eye discharge, and reduced appetite. It can cause mild to serve illness in some dogs also some dogs can be contagious and show no symptoms.
Bordetella – This is the “Kennel or Dog Cough” vaccine. Can be given orally, nasally, or via injection. If your dog receives the oral or nasal version of the vaccine, you must wait 7 days after administration before your dog can participate in boarding. Some dogs develop mild lethargy or soreness in the day or so after vaccination. In the case of killed vaccines containing an adjuvant, some thickening or lump formation may occur at the vaccination site. If this is painful or persists for more than a week or so with no decrease in size, consult your veterinarian. A few dogs will develop more severe reactions that are forms of hypersensitivity (allergy). These will usually occur within minutes, but may be delayed for a few hours. The dog may salivate, vomit, develop diarrhea or have difficulty breathing. Should this occur, consult your veterinarian immediately.
