Pet Wellness

We have established relationships with several veterinarians that offer 24-hour emergency services. If your pet should require medical attention while in our care our protocol is to first contact your veterinarian. Should the nature of your pet’s illness require an office visit we reserve the right to utilize our on-call veterinarian (this decision depends on the illness and the travel time to your veterinarian). Our caring staff can administer any oral or topical medications your dog may require during their visit.

We do not accept pets for boarding who have a serious or debilitating illness, or those whose age or physical condition requires veterinary monitoring. In such instances, we recommend board and care with a veterinarian of your choice.
