Main Content

We use the most technologically up-to-date vaccine protocols. All reputable boarding facilities will require proof of current vaccines for the safety of all pets boarding with them.

We recommend your pet be vaccinated even if it does not leave your home. Some diseases and infections can be passed by casual contact through a fence, screen door, window or even brought home on your shoes or clothes. Some are transmitted by wildlife common to many neighborhoods such as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, rodents and deer. A few of these diseases can be spread to humans.

  • Kitten Series
    • KITTEN 1 - FRCP 
    • KITTEN 2 – FRCP, Leukemia #1*
    • KITTEN 3 – FRCP, Leukemia #2*, Rabies

*Only if the cat is indoor/outdoor, or comes in contact with other cats.

  • Annual Wellness Exam for Felines
    • HCP3 (3yr)
    • Rabies (1yr)
    • Leukemia*

  • Cat without a current vaccine history
    • Because the cat does not have a current vaccine history, we will vaccinate in what we call a modified kitten series.
    • The FRCP and Leukemia* will need a booster 3-4 weeks after receiving its first set of vaccinations.

Vaccines Descriptions

  • FRCP/HCP (3yr)
    • Feline viral rhinotracheitis and calicivirus - Diseases of the respiratory tract of cats. Highly contagious to other cats. Transmitted through direct contact, through the air by sneezing or coughing, or by contact with you if you’ve been close to any infected cats
    • Panleukopenia – (Feline distemper) Highly contagious viral disease transmitted through contact with humans, infected cats, clothing, hair paws, food bowls and even cat carriers
  • Rabies - (Always a 1 year in cats) - A fatal viral disease that can affect all warm blooded animals including humans
  • Leukemia* – Only if the cat is indoor/outdoor, or comes in contact with other cats. This is a 2 year vaccine only if the client has been current with the vaccine OR gets a booster in 3-4wks. Otherwise, it will be considered a 1 year

Dog Vaccines

  • Puppy Series
    • PUP 1 (6-9 weeks) – DHPP & Bordetella Intranasal
    • PUP 2 (9-12 weeks) – DHPP & Bordetella Injectable
    • PUP 3 (12-15 weeks) – DHPP+L4 #1**, CIV H3N8/H3N2 #1
    • PUP 4 (16+ weeks) – DHPP+L4 #2**,  CIV H3N8/H3N2 #2 & Rabies (1yr)

**DHPP & Leptospirosis individual vaccines can be given in place of DHPP+L4 depending on doctor discretion

  • 6 Month Booster (6 month technician)
    • BORDETELLA (Injectable)
  • Annual Wellness Exam
    • BORDETELLA (Intranasal)
    • Leptospirosis
      • Leptospirosis should be given yearly. If DHPP & Lepto are due, then we will give DHPP+L4
    • DHPP 3 year
      • If DHPP is not due, then we will give Lepto only. If DHPP and Lepto are due, then we will give DHPP+L4
    • Rabies 3 year
    • CIV H3N8 & H3N2
    • HWC *tests for Heartworm, Anaplasma, Lyme, and Ehrlichia
      • Anaplasma, Lyme and Ehrlichia are transmitted by ticks
      • Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes, the worm lives in the heart and associated blood vessels of dogs
    • FECAL
      • Screens for intestinal parasites; we recommend testing every 6 months.

  • Dog without a current vaccine history
    • Because the dog does not have a current vaccine history, we will vaccinate in what we call a modified puppy series.
    • The DHPP+L4 & Bordetella will need a booster 3-4 weeks after receiving its first set of vaccinations.
      • If a client does not come back for 2 months to get these boosters we have to start the series over again. There is too much of a time gap between shots for the full immunity to still be in the system.

Vaccine Descriptions

  • DHPP(1yr)/(3yr)
    • Canine Distemper –  A widespread, often fatal viral infection of dogs
    • Canine Hepatitis – Death, Chronic hepatitis (Liver disease) and severe illness may occur
    • Canine Parainfluenza
    • Canine Parvovirus (only in DHPP) – A viral disease caused by a virus which is widespread worldwide and often fatal in untreated animals, this disease is easily spread. Infected dogs shed the virus in their stool and it remains very hardy in the environment. Parvoviral infection results in severe vomiting, diarrhea, and can lead to death due to complications. Puppies are the most susceptible to this disease because their immune system isn’t developed enough to fight off the infection. There is no cure for this viral infection, therefore vaccination is critical to prevent this disease
  • BORDETELLA
    • Canine “Kennel” Cough- A common respiratory disease of dogs caused by the bacteria Bordetella, Parainfluenza virus, and Adenovirus-2. It is easily transmitted from pet to pet on clothing and other objects
    • Canine “Kennel” Cough – Is not for dogs that just board at a facility, all dogs are susceptible to this disease if they come in contact with another dog
    • We use an intranasal and injectable form to help with immunity
  • LEPTOSPIROSIS
    • A bacterial infection resulting from contact with wildlife, the urine of wildlife, or contaminated water/food. Infection typically involves liver/kidneys and can be fatal
      • ZOONOTIC – Can be spread to humans
  • RABIES
    • A fatal viral disease that can affect all warm blooded animals including humans
      • ZOONOTIC – Can be spread to humans
  • CANINE INFLUENZA VIRUS (H3N8 & H3N2)
    •  A recognized type-A flu virus that affects dogs. Can lead to severe pneumonia, permanent lung damage, and possible death
    • It is rapidly spreading. We require both strains for all animals in boarding, grooming, & daycare.
  • LYME DISEASE (Optional)
  • A bacterial disease transmitted by ticks

There is a vaccine for Lyme Disease. Not all dogs are at risk for the disease. If you live in an area of heavy tick population, your dog hunts or does field trials, you camp, have a cottage or are traveling to Pennsylvania, the northeast or Wisconsin we suggest your dog receive the Lyme vaccine. The first time the dog receives the vaccine it is boostered 2-3 weeks later then followed by yearly boosters.
