Is the Lyme Vaccine Required in Wisconsin?

Lyme Vaccine

Essentially 8 different vaccinations in one, the DHLPP vaccine must be started around 8 weeks of age and boost every 3-4 weeks until 4 months age, then once on a yearly basis. This vaccine protects against:

  • Distemper: A paramyxovirus similar to human measles. 
  • Hepatitis: An adenovirus causing liver, eye or kidney failure.
  • Parainfluenza: A potentially deadly virus known, also known as the tracheobronchitis disease or “Kennel Cough”. 
  • Parvovirus: A virus that can kill dogs in less than 72 hours.
  • Leptospirosis: A bacteria capable of causing kidney failure & death.

It is recommended, but not required, you also vaccinate your dog for Lyme disease since our outdoor area does pose the risk of harboring ticks.

By keeping your dogs up to date on their Lyme disease vaccinations, you can sign them up for outdoor play time stress-free!

  • Lyme Disease: Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria is transmitted by ticks & can lead to kidney failure & death.

From Bordetella to Rabies and Lyme Disease, dogs are at constant risk of contracting deadly illnesses when they are not vaccinated. For this reason, pet owners cannot schedule a spot for their dogs without having state requried shots. It is the personal responsibility of the owner to vaccinate their pets and the responsibility of a pet boarding facility to protect the health of all dogs and cats present.
