Vaccination, Microchip & De-sexed Requirements

  1. All dogs must have at least a C5 vaccination, all cats to have at least a F3 vaccination.
  2. If your pet is not properly vaccinated, they cannot be accepted for boarding, therefore your pets stay with us will be cancelled. If a booking fee has been paid and your booking is to be cancelled due to lack of vaccination, no refund will be granted unless your booking meets the requirements of our cancellation policy below.
  3. To ensure that we offer your pet the best possible care, a current vaccination certificate must be produced for each pet on admission to the resort, showing that the vaccination was done within the preceding 12 months and that the due date for the next vaccination has not been passed.  Vaccinations MUST be given a minimum of two weeks (14 days) prior to boarding, to ensure full immunisation is guaranteed before entry to The Pets Hotel. To avoid disappointment, it is advisable that you check all vaccinations as soon as possible.
  4. All pets are required to have up to date vaccinations including complete puppy and kitten shots. See below for more information.
  5. We have to verify that the vaccinations are current, and we need you to present the current vaccination certificate either before or at the time of boarding.

Pet Vaccinations continued

All puppies or kittens must have had their full course of vaccinations and be 2 weeks after their 3rd and final vaccination before they can board with us (generally they are about 18 weeks old). If vaccination has lapsed then these pets must undergo a vaccination program like that of an unvaccinated animal, i.e., 2 vaccinations (C5 or F3) a month apart. 2 weeks after the 2nd shot, they are then able to board with us. Note: If vaccination is overdue, but less than 30 days from due date, exceptions can be made at the Resort Managers discretion only in accordance with the following – (injectable vaccination, 14-day isolation period), (intranasal vaccination, 48hrs isolation period), (Oral vaccination, 24hr isolation period).
