Dogs

Boarding Requirements

Welcome to Alrona Pet Motel,  a dog and cat boarding kennel.

We love dogs, small and large, social and non-social and we endeavour to make your dogs’ boarding experience,  the best it can be.

We are an Asurequality Approved kennel.  This is essential for establishments who are dedicated to companion animals and their welfare, as set out in the Animal Welfare Act 1999.

We also live by our Mission Statement, and believe that every animal deserves respect.

All boarding dogs are required to be enrolled on a  vaccination programme, for parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, as well as a separate vaccination to assist in the prevention of canine cough.

Vaccinations required are: Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis, with a separate vaccination against canine cough.

Suitable vaccines are: Nobivac DHPPI, Canvac 4,  Vanguard 5, Vanguard Plus 5, Canigen DHA2PPI.

Bordetella vaccines are: Canvac BB,  Coughguard CCi, Nobivac KC

Alrona Pet Motel,  prefers the Bronchishield type, that is combined with the annual booster, as opposed to the intranasal vaccine. This is because the intranasal is a live vaccine, and may shed the virus for up to six weeks.

If you are unsure with regard to any facet of the dog vaccination components, please ring the office to confirm our requirements.

There may be a need for a visit to your veterinarian.

For more information about canine cough, visit our Did My Dog Just Cough?  page.

These requirements protect all dogs in our care, which is of paramount importance.

Intranasal vaccines: Nobivac KC, Ontavac KC.

No vaccinations, no boarding, no exceptions

Your dog is also required to have a flea and worm treatment, fourteen days prior to boarding.

Written confirmation of this is required.

Alrona Pet Motel, also reserves the right to exclude entire male dogs, if this is deemed necessary.
