If anything should happen to your best friend we will call you first. If we can or can not reach you we will still in emergency circumstances call the nearest Veterinary Hospital.
We refer after-hours emergencies to:
CARE Frederick Emergency Services
1080 W. Patrick Street (Rte. 40)
Frederick, MD 21703 (P)
To ensure the safety of all pets in our care and the staff, we require all guests to be up to date on their vaccinations. This is to include Distemper-Parvo (DHLPP) and Rabies. While most kennels require Bordetella The Dog House does not. Upon research, we at The Dog House just don't find it necessary to put more vaccines into your pet. Bordetella is a virus and like the flu shot, there is no guarantee that the Bordetella shot you give your dog actually has the strain of kennel cough that is going around. So if the shot offers no guarantee we see no need in requiring the vaccine. If you want to get the vaccine that is fine but please make sure that it is gotten 2 months prior to boarding. If your dog is a senior or your dog is immune-compromised please contact us so we can discuss a vaccination alternative.
When it comes to veterinarian care, they get two paws up. Damascus Veterinary Hospital is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical, and dental care.
Their job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
