FAQs: Preparing for Their Stay

At Femmes & Fidos, we understand that your pups are more than just pets — they’re family! In an effort to help you feel at ease before their stay with us, here are some of the most common questions we hear about how to prepare your pet for boarding or daycare.

What Vaccines Does My Pup Need?

All boarding and daycare guests are required to have all core vaccines and all vaccines must be current, including:

  • Bordetella

  • Rabies Inoculation

  • Leptospirosis

  • Distemper

  • Parvovirus

  • Parainfluenza

How Do I Provide Proof of Their Vaccinations?

Owners must provide proof of their pup’s vaccinations by either bringing a copy of their vaccination record with them to their pup’s drop off or by emailing them ahead of time to femmesfidos@yahoo.com. Please include your pup’s first and last name in the subject line along with VAC DOCS.
