ALL DOGS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED with a Canine Cough  C5 and C2i (C7) (Lepto) vaccination is highly recommended as it will be a requirement 2023 understanding there is a current shortage so may not be possible until early 2024

**Please note a booking is not secured until the deposit has shown in our account, enquiries are recorded for reference only***

This year we have been informing our clients of the Lepto vaccination and getting them to vaccinate against it when their furbabies are due for their next vaccination as in 2023 this vaccination will be required to board or train dogs. We are questioned daily as to why we have made this decision and as you can see from the below news clip, this is a real and present danger which we have been aware of for a long time.

Just because your dog comes from a “safe” area doesn’t mean it will be safe, vets, dog parks and boarding kennels have dogs come from all over Australia which could be carriers.

It is very sad to hear from some clients, that many vets in  NSW and ACT either refuse to vaccinate against Lepto stating it is not an issue here or we hear clients have to really sell the fact that they require this vaccination!

This is a serious disease which we take very seriously, which can kill your loved ones!

Mice, rats and other rodents can carry infections that can spread to humans and our pets, and with a mouse plague currently occurring we’re reminding pet owners of the risk of leptospirosis – and infectious disease which can be carried by rodents.Please allow 14 days if you are getting your first C5/C7 vaccination needle done for your furbaby prior to dropping off for boarding or training.

It can be stressful to board your pet. If you have any questions or concerns about how we make your pet’s home away from home, please reach out. We will get back to you soon!
