7. The pet’s regular diet should be supplied by the owner to help prevent chances of diarrhea from dietary changes. All pets are fed individually twice daily.

8. Be aware that any time your pet is kept away from its normal environment, STRESS can occur that can limit appetite and or cause vomiting/diarrhea. Additionally, the temperature and humidity may be slightly different than your home, and your pet may get excited and bark at other pets which can result in sore throats, tonsillitis and/or tracheobronchitis, so please understand that these problems can occur beyond the control of the facility. Our facility is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter and dogs are walked by our caring kennel technicians at least 3-4 times daily.

We will discuss future boarding options for your pet upon your return, but may not, at doctor’s discretion, be permitted to board at our facility in the future.

12. In order to provide the best service for you and your pet we ask that you please call and inform us if your pick-up day changes in any way. Any pet left 5 days past the dismissal date with no client notification are designated as abandoned pets and will be handled according to clinic policy for abandoned pets.
