FAQs

What are your vaccination requirements?

The Lake County, Ohio Health Department requires rabies inoculations to be current for all dogs and cats that are over 4 months of age.

In addition to rabies, dogs must be current on their DHPP and Bordetella inoculations.  A current Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) inoculation for dogs is recommended.

In addition to rabies, cats must be current on their FVRCP.  A current Leukemia and Feline Infectious Virus (FIV) vaccination for cats is recommended.

Remember, your veterinarian is the final judge of what vaccinations are in the best interest of your pet. If your veterinarian believes that any or all of the required vaccinations would not be in your pet’s best interest, please have them provide a letter for our files.

We recommend that if your pet is receiving vaccinations for the first time that they are completed two weeks before lodging.

What is your policy on fleas?

A flea inspection will be performed upon arrival.  If fleas are present, a Capstar pill will be administered at the owner's expense.
