Kennel cough is a highly infectious condition which is actually picked up most commonly in everyday environments rather than, as the name implies, in the kennels! Because of its infectious nature, it is required that your dog is protected against kennel cough at least 30 days before your booking and that you can provide confirmation of protection.
It is essential that all pets are fully vaccinated (with boosters up to date) for before we can accept them as guests in The Pet Hotel. For Cats, you will need the annual vaccination for Flu, Enteritis & Leukaemia and for Dogs, the annual Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis and Kennel Cough vaccinations are required. It is essential that any new vaccination courses have been completed at least ten days before your booking and you must bring your vaccination certificate with you in order that we can keep our records updated.
We are happy to accommodate pets on medication. Just let us know when you make your booking so we can discuss any specific requirements which may be needed. Otherwise, simply bring enough of your pet’s medication with you to cover the length of stay and we will ensure that the medication is administered exactly as prescribed.
