I do require proof of vaccinations for every pet I groom. These include:
These vaccines are required to be given at least one week prior to your appointment.
Not many groomers require them to be done. However, after eighteen years working in an animal hospital setting I have seen the result of not having a pet properly vaccinated. I have seen pets euthanized because a human has been bitten by an unvaccinated pet with rabies. I have heard the racking, dry cough of kennel cough.
These protocols are in place for your pet’s protection! If your groomer doesn’t require proof then your pet is at risk. Please understand that if I turn you away it’s not because I don’t want to groom your dog.
