Vaccination Information and Requirements.

Age (weeks old) 6-8 12-14 16-18 Yearly
Dogs & Puppies C3 C3/C4 C3/C4 Annual Boosters are required for the duration of the dog’s life

There are various categories of vaccinations for dogs. Some are as follows:

C3 Vaccination: protection against distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus. Contains NO immunity against kennel cough and therefore will not be suitable for a dog entering a kennel facility.

C5 Vaccination (or C4 + BB): protection against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza and the bacterial component that causes kennel cough known as Bordetella. This vaccination provides the greatest protection against kennel cough and therefore is the preferred vaccination for dogs entering boarding.

Here at Canning Vale Boarding Kennels & Cattery we require all dogs to be vaccinated with their C5 vaccines (or equivalent). When you arrive with your pet you will be asked to show written proof of vaccination. Incorrectly marked cards won’t be accepted.

Puppies must be at least 20 weeks of age on entry to our boarding kennel, which will ensure maximum disease protection from his/her puppy vaccination schedule.

Vaccination will provide effective protection in the majority of animals but there is no 100% guarantee. All possible hygiene, health and safety procedures are carried out here at Canning Vale Boarding Kennels & Cattery. It is therefore unreasonable to expect that the costs of treating any case of Canine Cough of a dog boarding with us be borne by this establishment. Please see our section on Canine Cough for more information.

Please do not ask for your pet to be boarded with us if they are not up to date with their vaccinations as refusal may offend. If you don’t have a copy of your pet’s vaccination certificate please contact your vet to organise one before you bring your pet to board with us. Your preparation prior to booking will ensure your plans are not spoiled. Thank you.
