If you agree with the terms, print this two page form.

#3 Health Record Requirements:

Pets must have two distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza and parvo (DHPP) vaccines, a clear fecal check ideally dated within thirty days prior to class and a rabies vaccine if s/he is six months or older per MI law.
Titers documented on veterinary letterhead are accepted!
Other vaccines may be recommended by your veterinarian. Bordetella is recommended if your pet will be boarded, at a groomer salon, in public parks or at day care facilities due to the higher percentage of possible infection.
Note vaccinations are not 100% effective. If your pet displays any health concerns, please do not bring it to class and risk passing infection to other pets. You may attend and see the new lessons to practice at home as your pet is able.

New Pet? To help avoid possible parvo or kennel cough at class, pets that are acquired within two weeks prior to class start should not attend class until the two week incubation period is over. If this applies to you and you do not want to wait for a future session, do register and attend the second class if necessary without your pet. You can observe the lessons and practice at home, your pet will be missed, but will do alright starting at class #3 if you have practiced at home. Thank you!
