Pet Boarding & Daycare
Going on vacations? Spending the day at the ski hill and don’t want to leave puppy home alone? We are here for your pets when you can't be! Call us and book into our pet boarding facility.
Dogs are housed in their very own large, indoor runs complete with an outdoor kennel attached by a doggie door. They are walked twice daily (minimum of 20 minutes per walk) and allowed to run and play in a large, fence-enclosed exercise area. Dogs can be matched with compatible friends, for walks and play or can have their own solo time!
Cats are housed in sunny, roomy two room-sectioned condos. They are allowed free roam of an enclosed play area, complete with a tower scratching post, for daily exercise. As cats tend to be private animals, we only allow play time with family members (if any are boarding). Fresh litter is provided by the clinic and maintained throughout the day.
Cuddles and brushing are free perks!
Requirements for Booking
Pets must be fully up to date on all vaccinations to ensure that their stay is safe and healthy. We require proof of these vaccines BEFORE your pet comes to stay with us in order to hold your reservation.
Cats are required to be up-to-date on:
- Feline Leukemia
Dogs are required to be up-to-date on:
- DA2PP (distemper, parvo, parainfluenza)
- Kennel Cough (otherwise known as Bordetella)
Please be aware that Bordetella is NOT a required vaccine at regular yearly check-ups, so it is important to check with your regular vet to make sure this vaccine has been done.
If any vaccines are overdue or missing they MUST be done at least 7 days before boarding. (Oral/intranasal kennel cough can be done at least 3 days (72 hours) before boarding). This time lapse is essential for an immunity to be built-up within your pet’s system, and therefore for your pet to be fully protected.
Drop-off and Pick-up Hours
Please call our office at 403-678-4425 to book boarding or daycare. Reservations are required.
When you call to schedule your pet’s stay, we will ask you what time you will be planning on dropping-off and picking-up your pet, so that we know when to expect you.
The following is our schedule for boarding drop-off’s and pick-up’s:
Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 5:30pm
Saturday: 9:00am to 3:30pm
Sundays and Stat holidays: drop-off and pick-up times are by pre-arranged appointment only as the office is closed.
Daycare is not available on Sundays.
What do I Need to Bring for my Pet's Stay?
We ask that at the very minimum you bring your dog on a leash and collar, and your cat in a carrier. You are more than welcome to bring any toys, bedding or treats to make it feel like home! We are able to supply bedding, and we do have plenty of feeding and water bowls, so we ask that you leave those at home. We do not want to get them mixed up!
You are also welcome to bring any dry/canned food should you not want to use our in-clinic food. The only food we are unable to accept are raw diets or treats, or any combo diets that may contain these. If your pet is currently on a raw diet (or combo diet) and you are planning a stay at our boarding facility, we do require that your pet is switched to a cooked kibble or wet food diet, a week before their stay. This is to ensure that any potential bacteria is out of their system before they come to board.
If you do not wish to bring your pet’s food, we are able to supply limited selections of Royal Canin Veterinary dry kibble during their stay. These are easy-on-the-tummy life-stage diets that are provided at no extra cost to you.
