Thank You…

Medical Services

Many pet owners find that while their pet is boarding, it is a convenient and logical time to have medical services performed.  Teeth cleaning, lump removal, nail trims, etc., can be arranged.  We take care of all the post-operative care!

We will also administer medication your pet requires while boarding for an additional fee.

Bathing Services

We recommend your pet be bathed prior to going home.

Medical Care During Boarding

Although we do everything possible to make your pet comfortable, boarding can be somewhat stressful, especially for excitable and high-strung pets.  While most pets sail through this event, others may not eat or eliminate as regularly as in their home setting; others bark or meow more.  Some pets have diarrhea from all the excitement.  While most of these symptoms require little or no treatment, occasionally a pet does require medical care.  Our doctors will attempt to contact you or your emergency contact.  If we are unable to reach you, we will proceed with the care as deemed appropriate for your pet, and you will be charged for these services unless you specifically request otherwise in your instruction sheet.

Diet / Feeding Time

We feed Royal Canin and Purina premium digestive diets to the pets in our care.  Fresh water is provided continuously.  If your pet requires a special diet while staying with us, we will be happy to feed the special diet which you provide. 

Personal Belongings

We provide blankets, bedding and even toys for your pet during their stay. No need to bring any of these items from home.  Any personal    belongings which must be brought should be clearly labeled and placed into a bag which has your name and pet’s name marked on the front in large letters.

Doggie Daycare & Daycamp

Enroll your best friend in Doggie Daycamp. Your pooch will enjoy romping and playing in our large   playroom complete with agility equipment, loads of safe toys and an outside area for fresh air. Day campers receive tons of personal attention from our playland leaders as they get to know their fellow

doggie playmates and you will have peace of mind knowing they are having a good time. Your dog must be a non-aggressive good playmate to be enrolled. Each 4 hour block is $12.50, and $20.50 for all day.
