Frequently Asked Questions
What vaccinations are required for dogs ?
protects against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Canine Cough and Bordetella
Based on recent scientific information provided to Kismet Pet Resort by one of Australia’s leading veterinary pharmaceutical companies, Boehringer-Ingelheim, there is strong scientific evidence to support the use of intranasal vaccines for dogs, to assist in reducing Bordetella and Parainfluenza, (Canine Cough).
According to World Small Animal Veterinary Association;
‘Numerous published studies have demonstrated superior protection with intranasal canine cough vaccines compared to injectable products’
To enhance the health and well being of your pet in our care we recommend intranasal over injectable vaccines.
Intranasal 2 days or greater from check-in OR injectable 14 days or greater prior to check-in.
Please note; the further away from check in you vaccinate your pet the stronger protection they will have.
We would very much appreciate it if you could aim to be here AT LEAST 30 mins BEFORE our posted closing times instead of AT closing; this will make for a much more relaxed and pleasant check in for all involved.
We do realise that sometimes things happen, traffic delays occur etc and we will help where we can in emergencies but if you could make sure you leave enough time to account for a possible delay and still get here well before closing it would be greatly appreciated.
I notice you are closed across the holidays and in the middle of the day - who is looking after the pets on these days and times?
Staff attend to the guests every day of the year. We do close the office in the middle of the day, which allows us to do all those other things that we need to get done. It also creates some quiet time and stability for the guests. If you can imagine if we had guests arriving and departing every day, all day this can be quite unsettling for some of our guests. It also helps our team to care for all the guests more efficiently and give our guest undivided attention, which is critical during the very busiest of times.
