Boarding

General Boarding Information

Boarding is available 7 days a week. While services are primarily for dogs and cats, we do board some exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs and turtles. We are proud of our boarding facility and welcome visitors. Dogs reside indoors in climate controlled kennels, and can also play outdoors in our spacious exercise areas. Don’t forget we welcome exotics!

What to Expect When Boarding Your Pet

When your dog is dropped off for boarding, he will receive a quick exam prior to being placed in our kennel. This helps us to maintain the healthiest, cleanest, and safest environment for our guests.

We feed our boarders a prescription gastrointestinal diet called Purina EN. Feeding time typically occurs twice daily, once at 8am and again at 3pm. While owner diets are accepted for at no additional charge, they are not preferred unless medically necessary. 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.

Boarding Requirements

We require specific vaccines and tests be up to date. If necessary, we can update at check-in. Mandatory vaccinations include:
Dogs
