Health and Safety Requirements for Daycare and Boarding

143 (2)For the protection of your pet, the requirements below are non-negotiable and no exceptions can be made. If you have any doubt, or do not have a copy of your current vaccinations, contact your vet and ask them to send a copy to you well in advance of your scheduled stay. These records MUST be presented during or prior to check-in.

At Wag-On-Inn, people and pets always have a great time! One of the issues that we take very seriously, however, is our vaccination policy. No amount of precaution and care can guarantee the prevention of communicable diseases, but in order to minimize the risk of your pet being exposed to anything contagious any pet that visits the Inn, whether for an hour or a month must be current on the following vaccinations.

Required Vaccinations

RABIES – Written vet documentation must include expiration date as well as date administered.

BORDETELLA – This vaccination against Canine Cough might not normally be given unless your vet knows that your pet will be boarding, so please be sure that you request this vaccination. It is a requirement of Wag-On-Inn to have this shot administered every six months. Since pets are at greater risk of contracting bordetella or having a reaction immediately after receiving the vaccination, it must be administered at least ONE WEEK PRIOR to your scheduled stay at the Inn. This vaccination can be administered via injected shot, or as an intranasal spray.

DHLPP – This combination shot is generally good for one year although some manufacturers are producing three year vaccinations. If your DHLPP is for three years, the documentation from your vet must explicitly indicate that fact.

FECAL TEST – In addition to the above vaccinations, all pets staying at the Inn must have a recent fecal test. A negative stool sample check is acceptable if it occurred in the six months prior to checking in. Documentation from your vet must indicate the results of the test. If the test was positive for parasites – your pet must be treated and another fecal test performed (with a negative result) at the completion of treatment.

FLEA AND TICK PREVENTION – Since your pet will be playing outdoors, we SRONGLY recommend that your pet be on a flea and tick preventative when staying at the Inn.
