“Canine” HIPAA

As we have stated, here at Hacker’s Creek Kennel we like to keep all of our boarding patrons: happy, secure, safe and healthy! In order to do so making sure their vaccines are up to date is a MUST.

All veterinary clinics require their customers to sign a waiver stating the office is allowed to provide certain people and places with the pets’ medical history. This includes vaccines! This is a form of HIPAA, protecting YOUR right as a individual to have your (dogs) medical records kept private.

This “canine” HIPAA prevents business like Hacker’s Creek Kennel from calling and obtaining your dog’s vaccine information.

Please be aware of this when boarding your dog with us. We ask that you provide us with a copy of your dog’s vaccines by fax or email.  

If you have any additional questions please call the office.
