Boarding

General Boarding Information

Boarding of your pet is available 7 days a week and over holidays. While services are primarily for dogs and cats, we do board some exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and turtles. We are proud of our boarding facility and welcome visitors to tour. Dogs reside indoors in climate controlled kennels, and can also play outdoors in our spacious exercise areas. We have numerous additional services that can be added on to help your pet feel comfortable and enjoy their stay.

What to Expect When Boarding Your Pet

When your pet is dropped off for boarding, he/she will receive an examination prior to being placed in our kennel. This helps us maintain the healthiest, cleanest, and safest environment for all of our guests. If any concerns are noted on this examination a staff member will contact you.

We feed our boarders a prescription gastrointestinal friendly diet called Purina EN. Feeding times typically occur around 8am and 5pm. While owner diets are accepted 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
• 1 or 3 year rabies
• 1 year distemper/lepto combination OR current 2 year distemper plus current 1 year lepto

• Bivalent canine influenza (H3N8 & H3N2)

• negative fecal within the past 12 months

Cats

If your pet has been under the care of another veterinarian we will require documentation of vaccinations and negative fecal results.

Accommodations

Housing for our boarders varies depending on species and size. Feel free to tour our facility if you are interested in boarding your pet with us.

Boarders remain in their assigned accommodations, but have access to our spacious exercise areas as well as doggie daycare, if signed up for this. Cleanings occur 3-4 times daily for 10-15 minute stretches.
