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.

We routinely vaccinate dogs, cats and ferrets. Avian vaccines are available by special request and must be ordered in advance.


First visit:

  • 6-9 weeks old
  • feline viral rhinotracheitis/calici/panleukopenia/chlamydophilia (FVRCPC commonly known as feline distemper vaccine or 4-way vaccine)

Second visit:

  • 9-12 weeks old
  • FVRCPC booster
  • feline leukemia (testing is done before the vaccine is given.)

Third visit:

  • 13-16 weeks old
  • FVRCPC booster
  • feline leukemia booster

There is a vaccine for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). We do not recommend it because most pet cats are not at risk for FIV, there are questions about the vaccine’s efficacy and once the vaccine is given the test for FIV is no longer valid.

There is currently no vaccine for Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP).

  • 12-15 weeks old
  • DHPPC booster
  • leptospirosis booster

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.
