Due to the recent outbreaks of CIV in MD, we are being proactive and will start requiring all boarders, daycampers and grooming patients to have the canine influenza vaccine (CIV). Unfortunately, waivers will not be accepted unless your pet has a medical reason to not vaccinate. We have started notifying clients already scheduled for these services. Please be aware that this is a very safe and effective vaccine!
We are also now requiring all boarding and day camp pets to have a negative fecal test result within the year.
Ideally, the vaccine should be given at least 1 week prior to their arrival date but can be given the vaccine while they are here if needed.
Please note – this new protocol is to protect all pets in our care, including the care for our clients.
Thank you so much for your understanding and please feel free to reach out to us with any questions!
