Vaccine Dog

Dogs are individuals and their vaccination protocols should be discussed and agreed upon for each pet with your veterinarian. We believe in working with each family pet to keep them healthy. We must adhere to Rabies as it is state and federal law. Requirements are listed below.

Our passion and goal, as Pine Creek Pet Resort, is to keep your – and our part-time – furry family healthy and happy during their visit with us.

We all know that viruses and bacteria can cause cold symptoms, such as coughing and sneezing, in our children and in our “furry kids”.

At Pine Creek we believe – since all dogs don’t come in a box – that it is in the best interest of our pets to encourage you, the pet-parents, to make informed decisions on the choice of vaccines for your particular, individual, pets.

20+ years of experience (and research) boarding various breeds and personalities have taught much valuable insight, hence the “Common Sense Boarding & Vaccination Policies” explained below.

In order to treat each pet that graces our doors as an individual our vaccination is different than most, we can be flexible with some individual lead times. Give us a call, we will be happy to discuss your unique family pet before vaccinating. 570 864 3189

Common Sense Boarding & Vaccination Policies

Live, Modified Live and Attenuated Vaccines can carry a viral load that is capable of mutating and/or shedding for 45 days after administration, increasing the possibility of passing a contagious cold. Boosters also are vaccines that carry a viral load.
Common Sense says that if a vaccine has the capability of shedding for 45 days after administration, then the dogs should not be boarded within 45 days of said vaccination

IN ADDITION – Dogs that board elsewhere and dogs that go to daycare can pick up a cold and not show symptoms for two weeks.
Common Sense says because contagious “colds” incubate, we are asking for a 14-day lead period between boarding elsewhere, going to daycare or frequenting dog parks, in order to stay with us.

Our Common Sense Boarding and Vaccination Policies are designed to offer level best to protect your family members from contagions. It is impossible to completely prevent canine colds, though we believe our protocols will help to “stack the deck” in your dogs favor.

DEPOSITS: We will be asking for a non-refundable deposit* of $100 for the months of June thru September. Deposit will be credited on your invoice. Cancellations can be made up to 14 days previous to reservation without charges.

*This new deposit requirement does not apply to our frequent flyers and to those of you who have been bringing your furry family members for years. We appreciate your trust in us, and know that you care about the struggles small businesses go through to keep your family safe and to remain here for you.

Please call with any questions.

Thank you for keeping all of our boarding pets safe!
