Your dog needs to be current on their vaccinations. We strongly recommend that dogs have an extra vaccination against Bordetella (the vaccine for kennel cough), especially in the autumn and winter. We also request that all dogs be on some type of flea preventative.
Please pack all your dogs medications in their overnight bags. Its also a good idea to add a few extras to cover for travel delays and emergencies. Add detailed information regarding how you administer all medications and contact information to your regular vet.
