Based on the recent outbreak of Canine Influenza, it is suggested by the director of Veterinary Public Health for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health that all animal care facilities require Canine Influenza Vaccine.

Vaccine Protocol:

  • Leptospirosis (Lepto) (per vet advice)
  • Rabies (Annually or 3 years per vet advice)

So please get you pet vaccinated as soon as possible.
