At Partners, your dog’s safety is our highest priority. Our protocols are strict. Some say too strict, but we believe that when it comes to protecting our furry friends, no precaution is too much. To maintain that commitment to your dog’s health, we require the following vaccinations (issued by your veterinarian).
ALL DOGS ATTENDING TRAINING, DAYCARE, BOARDING OR DOG SPORTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE CURRENT RECORDS ON FILE.
These records can be faxed to 480.595.6885 or emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Also known as “Kennel Cough”, Bordetella bronchiseptica is a bacterium that causes respiratory disease in dogs. It is one of the most common bacterial causes of canine infectious tracheobronchitis
- Bordetella can be highly contagious, and is transmitted through direct contact or the air.
- Our kennels are disinfected every day, but bordatella can be resistant to destruction in certain kennel enviroments
- Bordatella can also be affected by stress or other immune issues
- Bordatella must be given at least a week before check-in, and needs to updated every 6 months to keep your pups safe during their stay
- The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommends that canine and feline vaccinations begin at 6 weeks and be given every 3-4 weeks until the age of 16 weeks.
- Dogs need to vaccinated annually with a booster (Every three years for DA-2P)
- Distemper (D) is a virus which attacks the respiratory, digestive, and brain/nervous systems of dogs
- Canine Adenviros-2 (A2) can cause respiratory disease in dogs
- Parvo Virus (P) is an infectious virus that is highly contagious with a 90% fatality rate in untreated dogs. This virus attacks the digestive and immune systems of unvaccinated animals, causing debilitating diarrhea and vomiting. Parvo is most common in puppies and can present in vaccinated dogs.
- Rabies is a 100% fatal disease in mammals. There is no effective treatment and the disease can infect humans.
- Vaccination against the rabies virus is required by law in most states. Typically, the rabies vaccine is administered to pets in a seperate injection at the same time as the canine distemper combination vaccine
- A booster vaccine should then be given every 3 years
- Rabies is not very common in the Phoenix Valley
- This bacterial disease attacks the kidneys and liver of infected dogs and can be transmitted to humans.
- Vaccination against this disease is generally considered non-essential but may be recommended in areas where leptospirosis is common.
- The Leptospirosis vaccine should be done every 6 months to a year with your Bordetella shot.
