on kennel cough
Kennel cough is a highly contagious airborne
infection similar to the common cold that kids can pick up
while at human daycare. No vaccine is 100% effective as new
strains of Kennel Cough continually develop and some dogs
can be more susceptible to the infection than others.
All Creatures Pet Lodge takes
all possible precautions to eliminate the possible spread
of this infection in our facilities. We strictly monitor
maintain proper ventilation at all times and follow a rigorous
cleaning schedule. In addition to requiring a current Bordatella
vaccination we highly recommend that owners get this vaccination
two weeks prior to their first boarding or daycare visit.
The vaccine can take up to two weeks to become fully effective.
There is also some current debate about how
long the various vaccines will protect your dog. Ask your
veterinarian for more information and make sure they know
when your dog will be staying with us.
