BOARDING INSTRUCTIONS

FOR OUR CANINE FRIENDS:
  1. Dogs must be current on ALL vaccinations. That is, they must have had their distemper/parvo vaccination within the last year; and they must be current on their rabies vaccination. We also require they be vaccinated against kennel cough. Kennel cough is caused by Bordetella sp. and results in infectious bronchitis that is highly contagious. If your dog did not get its vaccinations at our clinic you MUST bring proof of vaccination. This includes a rabies certificate and other vaccinations certificate from your veterinarian.
  2. Your dog must have had a negative stool sample within the last year. He/she must be tested free from intestinal parasites.

FOR OUR FELINE FRIENDS:

  1. Cats must be current on ALL vaccinations. They must have had their distemper/rhinotracheitis vaccination within the last year; and they must be current on their rabies vaccination. If your cat did not get its vaccinations at our clinic you MUST bring proof of vaccination. This includes a rabies certificate and other vaccinations certificate from your veterinarian.
  2. Your cat must have had a negative stool sample within the last year. He/she must be tested free from intestinal parasites.
FOR ALL BOARDERS:
  1. We run a flea free motel. Your animal will be checked for fleas before it is allowed into the guest rooms. If we find fleas, we will decline boarding. You may want to give your animal flea treatment before it comes in to avoid this possibility. Our strict requirements are for the health and protection of all our guests.
MAKING SURE THAT YOUR PET HAS EVERYTHING IT NEEDS BEFORE IT COMES IN IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! PLEASE CALL OUR CLINIC IF YOU NEED TO VERIFY THAT ALL IS IN ORDER. YOUR PET WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BOARD IF IT DOES NOT MEET OUR REQUIREMENTS...NO EXCEPTIONS! Please don't leave this for the last minute.
  • While your pet is here you can expect us to feed according to your schedule. You are welcome to bring your own food, but we do provide both canned and dry Purina Proplan brand food.
  • Pets are monitored 24 hours a day through an intercom system.
  • There is music playing all day long to keep our guests company.
  • Their quarters are scrubbed and disinfected every day and the linens are changed daily.
  • Dogs are walked a minimum of three times a day.
  • PLEASE make us aware if your pet has a medical problem that we need to monitor closely. If it needs special food (eg: urinary tract in cats) or if your animal has seizures, etc. We will give any medications to your pet as required.
  • We will love them, pet them, and play with them as if they were our own.
The hours when your animals may be admitted or discharged are very specific. It you are dropping off or picking up your pet over the weekend, we must also know the exact time you will be doing so. Pets will not be released to anyone other than their owners. If you would like a relative or friend to pick up your pet, please notify us at the time of drop-off.
