Kennel Cough Waiver

While at Wags and Whisker’s Pet Rescue, your newly adopted dog may have been exposed to OR has recovered from an episode of Infectious Respiratory Disease (more commonly referred to as Kennel Cough or IRD).

This condition is the equivalent of a “dog cold”. We recommend all newly adopted dogs be seen by a veterinarian within a few days of adoption for a routine health check. IF your dog develops a hacking cough, discharge from the eyes and/or nose, lethargy, or loss of appetite, you should make an appointment with a veterinarian. Please be aware that some dogs may have later occurrences of these infections.

IRD is normally very successfully treated with a combination of antibiotics and supportive care of a minimum of 10-14 days. Severe, untreated cases of IRD can develop into pneumonia, so it is important to discuss IRD with your veterinarian. We suggest you limit or prevent contact with other dogs for a minimum of 14 days after taking your new dog home. If your new dog happens to become sick, please consult with your regular veterinarian for further advice. If you own another dog and it becomes infected, you will be responsible for any veterinary care needed.

If symptoms occur within 14 days of adoptions, applicant may use Wags and Whisker’s veterinary staff services free of charge for treatment of kennel cough, but agrees to let the dog be seen as a rescue animal by Wags and Whisker’s veterinary staff without direct veterinarian supervision. Any symptoms shown after 14 days of adoption will be at the applicant’s own expense.

Wags and Whisker’s Pet rescue has informed me of known or observed medical issues with the animal I am adopting. I agree to care for this animal for the rest of its life in a manner that is necessary with these conditions.

Puppy Parvo Vaccination and Care Agreement

Vaccinations
Canine Parvovirus (Parvo) is a highly contagious and potentially deadly disease. Even with treatment, parvo survival rates are 50%-70%. Preventative care in the form of vaccinations is the best way to protect your new family member from catching this deadly disease. Your dog’s first year of parvo/distemper vaccinations are covered through your adoption fee. Please look at your puppy’s medical sheet to find the due date for his or her next vaccination. You can walk in weekdays 1-5pm to get the vaccination done. 

General Precautions until Fully Vaccinated

Do not let your puppy on dirt and grass, that’s where parvo lives.
Use indoor potty training with potty pads.
Carry your puppy if bringing it outside. 
Do not bring your puppy to the dog park until it is fully vaccinated.  
Do not bring your puppy around dogs that are not fully vaccinated.
Make sure all your personal dogs at home are fully vaccinated.

What is considered fully vaccinated?

Puppies under 5 months of age need vaccinations every 3 weeks. After they reach 5 months of age, they need one more vaccination and another 5 days before they are considered fully vaccinated.

Signs of Parvo

Vomiting ∙ Diarrhea ∙ Lethargy ∙ No appetite or major decrease in appetite

If you notice any of these signs, call us immediately at (530) 895-8888. 
Don’t wait, time is of the essence. 

If symptoms occur within 14 days of adoptions and the applicant has followed the recommended vaccination schedule and puppy care steps as listed above, applicant may use Wags and Whisker’s veterinary staff services free of charge for treatment of parvovirus, but agrees to let the dog be seen as a rescue animal by a Wags and Whisker’s Registered Veterinary Technician with protocols established by our Chief Medical Officer. Any symptoms shown after 14 days of adoption will be at the applicant’s own expense.

If symptoms appear after 14 days of adoption or you have not followed the proper vaccination schedule and care instructions, you will be charged $1,500 up front for our services. The longer you wait for your puppy to receive treatment, the less likely your puppy will survive.
