Teams not vaccinated against kennel cough (Bordetella bronchiseptica) will be required to receive a mandatory pre-race vet check.  Alternatively such teams can provide a health certificate, issued by a veterinarian after Jan 20th.

The pre-race vet check is also available for those who have vaccinated against kennel cough. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and have your team checked by an experienced race vet and to build-up a good relationship with the vet team. In addition the service is free of charge!

 

In order for us to be able to organize the pre-race vet checks we need to know what teams require a vet check.

If you answer yes, to one of the questions hereunder then you have to participate in the pre-race vet check:

  • My dog team is not vaccinated against kennel cough and I will not be able to provide a heath certificate.
  • Some of the dogs on my team are vaccinated, but not all.
  • My dogs are vaccinated, but I would like to have a race veterinarian check my team before the start of the race.

 

Please indicate in the link “doodle poll” when you would like the pre-race vet check.

We will confirm to you in January the date and time for your vet check.

 

If you answer yes to one of the questions hereunder then you DO NOT need to participate at the pre-race vet check:

  • My dog team is vaccinated against kennel cough.
  • My dogs are not vaccinated against kennel cough, but I will provide a health certificate issued by a veterinarian after 20th January 2014.
