Your pet needs to be fully vaccinated before acceptance to our boarding facility. A copy of the vaccination certificate must be presented on arrival. If you are in any doubt then please confirm your pet’s vaccination status with one of our friendly staff well in advance of your pet’s intended stay.
Your dog needs to have a current C5 vaccination administered in the past 12 months to be accepted into the facility and you need to show proof of this vaccination on arrival.
If you have a puppy that is requiring boarding they must have had two C5 vaccinations before entering the facility and it must be two weeks after the 2nd C5 vaccination to allow their immune system to respond to this vaccine.
Your cat needs to have a current F3 vaccination in the past 12 months to be accepted into the facility and you need to show proof of this vaccination on arrival.
If you have a kitten that is requiring boarding they must have had two F3 vaccinations before entering the facility and it must be two weeks after the 2nd F3 vaccination was administered to allow their immune system to respond to this vaccine.
Our facility is extremely vigilant in only boarding vaccinated animals to ensure the health and well-being of all animals staying at ICPB. Vaccinating your pet ensures their immune system is well equip to fight diseases in the off chance they encounter them.
In spite of strict vaccination and hygiene protocols it is possible that an individual pet may enter our facility whilst incubating a disease and hence put other boarding patients at risk. Once identified your pet will be quarantined in our veterinary hospital but this may be too late to avoid other boarders being exposed to the germs and subsequently falling ill.
If your pet is showing any visible signs of an infectious disease at time of admission then they will be refused entry and other care arrangements will need to be made. This is best both for their sake and the sake of other boarders.
