VACCINATION POLICY

Announcement for all dog owners who have been clients or are new to our Inn.

Our vaccine policy is different from all other boarding facilities.

Our requirements are as follows:

1. WE WILL NOT TAKE A DOG THAT HAS BEEN VACCINATED FOR BORDETELLA/KENNEL COUGH WITHIN 3 WEEKS OF THEIR SCHEDULED VISIT IF IT IS A LIVE/ORAL OR MODIFIED LIVE VIRUS/INTRANASAL VACCINATION .

2. VACCINATING AGAINST KENNEL COUGH DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR DOG WILL NOT GET KENNEL COUGH. THE EFFICACY OF THE VACCINE IS IN QUESTION, HENCE WHY SOME VETERINARIANS ARE FORCED TO VACCINATE EVERY 6 MONTHS AND SOME VACCINATE ANNUALLY.

    3. WE DO NOT REQUIRE ANNUAL VACCINES DUE TO DECADE LONG STUDIES SHOWING SIGNIFICANT HEALTH ISSUES FROM OVER VACCINATING SUCH AS AUTO IMMUNE DEFICIENCIES.

4. THE ONLY VACCINE MANDATED BY LAW FOR A KENNEL TO REQUIRE IS THE RABIES VACCINE WHICH IS EVERY 3 YEARS.

5. PLEASE READ OUR VACCINE PAGE ON THE WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON OUR POLICY AND WHY.

6.THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD NOT VACCINATE YOUR DOGS. IT IS ANOTHER VIEW OF VACCINATIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT VACCINES ENABLING YOU TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS REGARDING YOUR DOG’S HEALTH BASED ON RISK FACTORS.

7. PLEASE MAIL, EMAIL, OR FAX VACCINATION INFORMATION TO US PRIOR TO YOUR DOG’S VISIT AT “WAG” SIDE INN.     PHONE/FAX # 607-842-6990

8. MOST VETERINARY HOSPITALS ARE CHANGING TO 3 AND 5 YEAR VACCINE REGIMENS INSTEAD OF ANNUAL. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN TO FIND OUT ABOUT  THEIR CURRENT POLICY . IF IT IS STILL ANNUALLY, ASK WHY?
