Barnside Veterinary Hospital
Boarding Health and Vaccination Requirements
Clientele and Health Requirements
All guests must be patients of Barnside Veterinary Hospital. This is a service for our clients and their pets who may require a little more attention than a kennel can offer.
All boarding pets must have been examined by a Barnside Veterinary Hospital veterinarian within the previous 12 months. All pets must have had a negative fecal analysis within the previous 12 months. If a pet does not have a negative fecal test result, a stool sample will be obtained while the pet is boarding. You will be charged for the test and any necessary treatments.
All clients must provide proof that their pet is up-to-date on the following vaccines:
Feline Distemper (FVRCP)
Distemper/Parvo and Leptospirosis (DHLPP)
Kennel Cough (Bordetella)
Canine Influenza H3N2/H3N8
DHLPP, FVRCP, Bordetella, and Canine Influenza vaccines MUST have been administered by a licensed veterinarian within the 12-month period prior to boarding. The Rabies vaccine must have been administered within the 36-month period prior to boarding.
** Vaccine titres are not acceptable in lieu of vaccines **
It is the client's responsibility to make sure that their pet's vaccines are up-to-date through the boarding dates. You can check your pet's vaccine status anytime through your Petly Pet Portal account.
Vaccines need time to take effect. If your pet is overdue, the Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Influenza vaccines must be administered at least 2 weeks before boarding. The Bordetella vaccine must be given 2 weeks prior [if given SQ (injection) or Oral] or 2 days (if given Intranasal).
