Reservations should be made in advance whenever possible. All pets arriving or departing from the Pet Lodge must be on a leash or in a carrier. Please allow a few extra minutes for checking in so that we can review your pet's vaccination records and collect your contact information. We appreciate having as much information as possible about your pet along with any present or past medical conditions. Please provide us with current documentation of the following vaccinations:
Dogs: Distemper Complex, Bordetella(annual) and Rabies
Cats: Distemper Complex and Rabies
Upon your pet's arrival to the Lodge, your pet will be given access to the bathroom facilities. For your dog's safety, please bring your dog on a properly fitted nylon or leather collar with a name tag attached. Please help us keep your pet happier by making sure the ears are free of infection and debris and that the coat is brushed and mats removed prior to boarding. We recommend that dogs be on a preventative for fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites and that cats be on a preventative for fleas.
If there is a change in your pet's arrival or departure time, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible. If you plan to pick up your pet outside of your scheduled departure time, please call ahead so that we can have your pet and belongings ready. Payment is due in full at the time of departure and we accept cash, checks, debit cards, Visa, Mastercard and Discover. A $25 fee will be charged for all returned checks. We appreciate your understanding of our policies, hours and lodging rates.
In the unlikely event that your pet should require veterinary care, reasonable efforts will be made to contact you and your veterinarian first. Depending on the nature of the illness and the travel required to access your veterinarian, we reserve the right to use a veterinarian of our choice. Any transporting fees or veterinary bills shall be paid by the owner.
We are able to accommodate special need pets requiring more extensive care or special handling. This includes and may be mandatory for pets that are blind, diabetic, geriatric, incontinent, immoble, etc. An additional fee of $5-$15 per night will be charged depending on the extra care required. Please contact us to discuss the specific needs of your pet.
Owners are asked to provide their pet's regular food and snacks from home to avoid any sudden dietary changes that could lead to digestive upset or pets refusing to eat. We also recommend that owners bring a supply of longer lasting edible types of chewies like Busy Bones or rawhides because the pets do enjoy chewing on something familiar during their spare time and we want them to be happy and entertained.
Our full kitchen allows us to monitor diets closely, provide warm meals and store food and medications that require refrigeration or freezing. Please inform us of any dietary restrictions your pet may have. We are able to administer oral, topical and injectable medications as prescribed by your veterinarian.
