Do I need to bring my dogs food when they are Boarding?
We typically recommend bringing your dog’s food from home, as a lot of dogs do better staying on their regular diet from home and have less trouble with upset stomachs from switching foods. If your pet has any food allergies or dietary concerns, we definitely recommend supplying your own food. If you do decide to bring your own food, we recommend bringing it in pre-portioned resealable baggies. This ensures that we have plenty of food for your dog’s stay. If you do not pre-portion the food, it does need to be in a resealable container or bag. We also have a refrigerator and microwave to prepare special diets. If you dog is boarding with us for five days or more, you may want to consider increasing the amount of food your dog eats, due to their increased activity level. Food can be provided at an extra cost.
My dog takes medication, are you able to give it to them?
Yes, we will gladly administer up to five medications to your dog while they are in our care for no additional charge. (We do have a small charge for more than five medications.) All medications must be in the original prescription container so that we will have detailed information about the medication, and you must sign a consent form giving us permission to administer the medication. We do not administer injections.
