We require all dogs to have the Influenza vaccine. This is a 2 shot series that requires a booster 2-3 weeks after the initial vaccination. After receiving the initial vaccine (as well as the booster) dogs must wait a minimum of 5 days before returning to Paws & Claws for grooming. They are not completely ‘covered’ until 10 days after the booster. Please have your vet send us a copy of your pet’s updated vaccine records before arriving.

***All other vaccines must be updated a minimum of 2 weeks prior to arrival, including a negative fecal test from within the past 6 months.***




Bordetella (canine cough) – Best if given within the past 6 months, but not more than 11 months. Kennel cough virus vaccine is required by most boarding kennels and is recommended for dogs who are in contact with other dogs.  It is an upper respiratory disease that causes severe coughing and is highly contagious.
