Can I bring food or toys for my dog if he/she is staying for daycare?

Please bring your pets own food to avoid tummy issues and stress during their stay with us.   You are also more than welcome to bring any bedding and your pets favorite toy.

What if my dog/cat needs medication while boarding? 

We enjoy having your pet stay with us and are happy to administer medications. However, we want you to be aware of limitations and conflicts that can occur when boarding and your pet may not take their medication the same way that they do at home. Please do not put medication in your baggies of food, keep them separate and labeled accordingly. We prefer to administer them individually to ensure they are consumed.
