Vaccine Requirements

The Erlanger Pet Resort and Day Spa formulated our vaccine protocol based on the Vaccine Guidelines established by American Animal Hospital Association.

We want nothing more than to protect your pet from preventable diseases they may encounter in their community or while in our care, through exposure to other animals. Please carefully review the vaccine requirements below with your veterinarian to ensure your pet is properly protected. We will require proof of all vaccines given to your pet from a licensed veterinarian before any services are performed.
