Since we have lots of furry buddies & can't call each vet, we appreciate your help making sure documents are sent our way in a timely manner :)


​Bringing in a dog with expired or missing vaccines poses a health risk to our other guests, our human staff, & your best friend!


Please be aware that we will need to cancel and reschedule your dog's  appointment if any of these accines/tests are expired or proof of vaccination is not provided.

​​Kindly provide your dog's paperwork at least 5 days PRIOR to your pet's appointment (if time allows). 


Paperwork submitted should include the expiration dates for your dog's rabies & distemper/parvo vaccines and/or the date each vaccine was given.


If your dog only needs an updated fecal test to visit, this typically does not require an appointment with your vet. Just collect a stool sample after they do their business and bring it to your vet in a plastic baggie.


Please note that fecal test results typically take 1-2 business days to process. Paperwork submitted must include the actual results of the test indicating no ova/parasites were detected in order to be validated by our staff.


If you don't have access to the lab results, ask your vet's office how to get a copy and they should be able to help!

Health  Requirements For Grooming

Need Help?

How to send your dog's records.


There's only one thing more important to us than having fun here, and that's ensuring the cleanliness of our facility and the well-being of our guests.


In short, we take our health requirements seriously!  


Please review our required vaccines & testing for grooming reservations below.


As always, we truly appreciate your assistance in keeping Passage East a safe and happy environment for our human staff & furry customers.


Requirements for Grooming-Only Appointments​​


 VACCINATIONS: If your dog is receiving a salon service ONLY, they must be fully vaccinated & up-to-date on the following for their appointment:


  • Rabies


  • Canine distemper/ parvovirus **


The bordetella vaccine is not required but is strongly recommended for our grooming guests. 


While your dog won't participate in group playtime or interact directly with other dogs, they may occasionally cross paths in the lobby or while entering / exiting the building. Please consult with your vet regarding your dog's individual needs.


PARASITE SCREENING: All dogs must have a fecal exam to screen for intestinal parasites (including Giardia) within 12 MONTHS of their planned visit. 


Test results MUST be negative for all ova & parasites to receive grooming services.

 


Have everything you need? Nice! 


  • Log in to the customer booking portal& upload a photo or PDF of the documents. Once you've logged in, click "My Pet" & then "Vaccinations" to upload, OR
  • Emaila photo or PDF of the records to dogsrunfree@passageeastkennels.com, OR

Not sure where everything is? No judgment!

** For puppies, the distemper/parvo vaccine is a 3-part series that is first given at age 6-8 weeks and then followed by two booster shots, each done 3 weeks apart. Puppies must have received the full series in order to visit The Salon.

For adult dogs, proof of a positive distemper titer test within your vet's recommended time frame will be accepted.
