Boarding is available seven days a week. While services are primarily for dogs and cats, we do board some exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs and turtles.
What to Expect When Boarding Your Pet
When your pet is dropped off for boarding, he will receive a quick exam prior to being placed in our boarding facility. This helps us to maintain the healthiest, cleanest, and safest environment for our guests.
We feed our guests a prescription gastrointestinal diet called Purina EN. Feeding time typically occurs once daily at 8am although twice-a-day feedings are available at no additional cost. Owner-provided meals must be pre-measured and pre-bagged per meal to ensure proper feeding.
All blankets and food/water bowls are provided by our clinic.
Any required medications must be brought in their original containers and be accompanied by current prescription dosage.
We require specific vaccines and tests be up to date. If necessary, we can update at check-in. Mandatory vaccinations include: Dogs • 1 or 3 year rabies • 1 year distemper/lepto combo OR current 3 year distemper plus current 1 year lepto • 6 month bordetella • negative stool check within the past 12 months • Canine Influenza H3N2 and Canine Influenza H3N8
Cats • 1 year rabies • 1 year distemper • negative feline leukemia test (for indoor-only cats) • 1 year feline leukemia vaccine (for outdoor cats) • negative stool test within the past 12 months
If your pet is seen by a different veterinarian, we will require documentation of vaccinations.
