We provide pet boarding of all types of animals including dogs, cats, rabbit, birds, pocket pets and reptiles as a service to our clients. As a benefit of being boarded at the hospital, a physical exam during check in is included in your boarding cost. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during our regular business hours Monday through Saturday. For those pets that board with us for more than 3 nights, we offer bathing at a discounted rate.
Cages are cleaned and sanitized on a daily basis. Our boarders are closely monitored daily for appetites, demeanor and elimination habits. We encourage owners to bring their pet's regular food, however we have an easily digestible hospital diet that we can provide. All medications are dispensed as requested by our trained staff. Should a health problem arise while your pet is in our care, a veterinarian will perform a physical exam. If the issue is serious or requires medication, we will reach out to you at your emergency contact number.
As part of our Fear Free mission, we pride ourselves on doing everything we can do reduce stress for all our boarders. Having a certified dog trainer on staff gives us added ability to monitor your dog for kennel stress. Stress reduction techniques include enrichment activities such as stuffed Kongs, thundershirts, dog-appeasing pheromone plug ins and sprays, increased exercise, cage covers and calming music. All dogs are taken for walks outside around our property several times a day. In order to keep stress lower, we do not let dogs interact with other boarders. Siblings might be boarded together, but unlike the home environment, increased stress in a new environment may change the way they act toward each so they are monitored very closely and may be separated for safety and comfort. You will be asked ahead of time if we may implement pharmaceutical stress reduction if we feel your pet is over their anxiety threshold.
Cats are housed in a separate area and also monitored for stress. Stress reduction techniques for our feline boarders includes hiding boxes, kitty curtains, feline pheromone spray and increased time out of the cage. Sibling cats might be boarded together but unlike the home environment, increased stress in a new environment may change the way they act toward each so they are monitored very closely and may be separated for safety and comfort.
We aim to incorporate as much as your pet's "home" as possible. We provide litterboxes for cats. We also provide food bowls and blankets/beds for both dogs and cats, but are happy to accommodate any special requests...including using the only mug that your pet might drink out of!
