How To Become A Part of Our Canine Family
It’s easy to become a part of our family. In fact, we even schedule a FREE daycare day for your dog’s first day with us. We consider this an evaluation day. We like to meet your dog, get to know them, watch them carefully that first day so we can see how they get along with other dogs, what they like to do and more. But, first things first. We need all your dog’s vaccination records and for you to fill out our FORMS Have your vet office email or fax over your dog’s vaccine certificate. You will need the following BEFORE your first day:
- NEGATIVE fecal within a year
- Bordtella- We require this every SIX months
- Flu H3N2 (This is a two-part vaccine, the first must be completed before your first day and the second within 2-4 weeks after the first)
Once you have done all these things call to schedule your FREE first day. We can’t wait to meet you and your dog(s)!
WHY DO WE REQUIRE THE H3N2 FLU VACCINE?
The dog flu is still endemic in Northern Illinois. You probably remember a few years ago when there was a big outbreak that shut down animal hospitals, vet offices, daycare centers and dog parks throughout the area. It was a big story. And we minimal issues because we keep our facility so clean and because we voluntarily shut down for a few days to avoid the potential for trouble. That’s when we made the decision… As a preventative measure, Paws In Time requires the current flu vaccine H3N2. This is a two-part vaccine. Vets should fax the record of these vaccines, each as they are given, to us at Paws In Time.
For any new clients this flu vaccine is one of the requirements on our FORMS. Thank you for your cooperation, together let’s help keep our dogs happy and healthy!
