Why are up-to-date vaccinations required?

Vaccinating your puppy and dog is protecting your dog from various diseases. Some diseases are highly contagious and can be spread through the air or when a dog comes in contact with a sick dog or with an environment contaminated by that dog. Please make sure that your dog or puppy is fully vaccinated, including kennel cough vaccination, before bringing your dog for assessment or classes. The kennel cough vaccination is to be administered a minimum of 7 days before the puppy or dog can attend classes.

Kennel cough is a respiratory illness and is highly contagious. You can find further information on kennel cough on the Limerick City Vet’s blog post here: http://www.cityvet.ie/canine-cough/.

Proof of vaccinations are required.

Please make sure that your dog or puppy is also free of parasites and that they are healthy when they come to class, so please no coughing, vomiting or diarrhea for 48 hours prior to classes.
