What to Expect
When you drop off your pet, a team member will ask questions regarding an emergency contact number, food, feeding schedule, medication, bathing, special commands, and any problems that need to be addressed by a doctor during their stay.
You are encouraged to bring your pet's normal food while boarding. A sudden change in your pet's food could result in diarrhea or constipation. We do carry Science Diet Growth and Maintenance dry dog and cat food in case a pet runs out or you forget to bring food. This food is available at no extra charge. You can bring 1 item of bedding, 1 toy, and treats for your pet. It is very helpful to have all items labeled with the pet's first and last name.
