|WHAT CAN WE BRING FOR OUR DOG?
We encourage you to bring
anything to make your pet feel more at home. Blankets, toys, crate,
bed and their favorite treats, of course. Since we cannot keep a
constant watch over your pet, we will decline any rawhide treats. We provide Bil-Jac
® dog food or a dry kibble for our customers, but we prefer you bring your
own food so they don't get upset stomachs from a food change.
|WHAT CAN WE BRING FOR OUR CAT?
We have wonderful cat
condos for housing your cat. And as with the dogs, we encourage
you to bring in anything the cat is used to or comfortable with.
Since cats can be finicky eaters, we do not provide food for them.
But we do provide the kitty litter at no charge.
DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE YOU WITH ANY SHOT
Yes. For your dog, proof of current vaccinations
Bordetella (kennel cough)
Kennel Cough vaccination is only given when requested by most vets.
Very few vets automatically give this vaccination. Please check your
records and make sure all three vaccinations are listed. For the
safety of your pets and others boarding with us, your pets will be turned
away if they are not current on their shots. The vaccination booklets
given out by the vets are not accepted as valid shot records, please bring a
printout from the vet.
Give your own shots?? The following must be

The bottles, labels or packaging that shows name of

Only! Rabies, by law, must be given by a licensed vet.)
For your cat,
proof of current vaccinations for Rabies and FVRCP are required all year.
*No animal will be
accepted for boarding without proof from a licensed veterinarian.
