Proof of the above listed requirements must be obtained prior to your dog’s admittance into the daycare program. Let one of our Client Service Specialists take care of obtaining that information for you! Just provide us with your primary veterinarian’s information. If your pet is not current on any of the requirements listed above, we will notify you prior to drop off whenever possible. As a full-service medical facility, we can also update any requirements during your pet’s visit with us.
All guests will be screened for fleas and ticks upon arrival. If external parasites are noted, treatment will be administered and charges will apply (rates are based on weight of the pet).
If your pet has not been picked up from daycare by 5pm, your pet can stay with us overnight. Nightly boarding rates will apply. Our staff will provide your pet with a suite, fresh bedding, water and food before walking them and tucking them in for the night. We understand that unforeseeable circumstances may cause you to run behind. If you think you may be late picking up, just give us a call so that we can be prepared.
All dogs over the age of twelve months must be spayed or neutered in order to participate in daycare.
Until fully vaccinated against Distemper, Rabies and Bordetella, puppies under the age of 16 weeks will not be allowed to participate in daycare.
Dogwood Veterinary Hospital & Pet Resort will practice diligence to ensure the safety, well being, and happiness of every dog in our Daycare program. However, there are certain risks associated with allowing the freedom of dogs interacting with other dogs. Even with constant supervision, nips, scratches, muscle soreness, disease, and dog fights may occur. We encourage your awareness and understanding of the risks involved.
Please note that we provide food and water bowls for all pets during their stay with us. We also offer pet cots and fresh bedding. You are welcome to bring some of the comforts of home and we will gladly place these items in your pet’s suite with them. We sometimes have to remove bedding and toys if they become soiled. Although we use care in handling your pet’s belongings, we cannot guarantee that personal items will not be lost or damaged during your pet’s stay.
