Vaccination Requirements

Pittsburgh Pet Concierge values the health and safety of all our guests.  For any service in which your dog or cat is to enter our resort or be under our care, the below vaccination requirements must be met.   All vaccinations are to be provided from your veterinarian's office or a copy can be provided from the client.  If your pet is not up to date on the vaccinations listed, we reserve the right to refuse all services.  All vaccinations must be current through the end of the stay, and may not expire while under our care.  Our system tracks all of our guest's vaccinations and expiration dates.  You will receive an email notification alerting you to a vaccination that is to expire soon.

We strongly recommend dropping off a sample at your vet as soon as you know you need to board. 
To avoid getting the wrong stool test done it is imperative to instruct the front desk of the following when you hand your stool sample over:
“I want this sample sent out to either Idexx or Antec labs to receive a parasite/ova antigen test and to please fax the results to 412.856.8505.”
