Do you board diabetic pets?
Yes, however our diabetic boarders are charged a fee of $40. This includes two playtimes, the daily administration of insulin and daily weight checks by our veterinary technicians from Redstone Animal Hospital. We ask that you provide the insulin and needles.
What happens in the winter?
During the winter we make sure that your pets are kept comfortable. We have heaters to keep them toasty and lock them inside at night to keep the kennel warm.
What should I bring for my pet’s stay?
This can vary from client to client. We have some that provide us with blankets, toys, bowls, food and treats. We prefer that you leave bowls and small toys at home as we cannot guarantee the return of any personal items. Blankets and beds that are not of high value are welcomed with the note that if they are chewed up or soiled we throw these items away. All of our runs are furnished with a Kuranda bed, which is a cot-like bed that is a few inches off the ground.
Can I bring my pet’s own food?
Yes you may. We do ask that you portion your pet’s food into individual serving sizes. This ensures that we feed your pet the exact way you do at home and that enough food has been provided for their entire stay. We always recommend if your pet has food allergies or sensitive stomach to bring your own food and to inform the front desk at drop off of those allergies. My Pet’s Place can provide food at no additional cost if preferred.
I am thinking about signing my dog up for group play. Do dogs ever get hurt?
Although we do our best to minimize any injury to your dog, during normal play a dog may get small scratches, nicks, and lose small patches of fur. Although rare, it is possible for more serious injuries to occur.
My dog doesn’t like other dogs. Can they still come?
Yes, unlike some other kennels that require all pets to socialize together, we do have packages that cater to older dogs, or dogs that prefer the affection of humans rather than other dogs. If this describes your pet, please look at the sniff and stretch or active dog packages.
How many dogs are allowed in Group Play at one time?
To keep a safe play environment, we maintain staffing ratios of one staff member for every 15 dogs. Our maximum allowed out in the dog park at one time is 15 dogs. In the event that we have more than 15 dogs, we will rotate dogs into several groups until all have received the amount of play they have been signed up for.
Why is my pet required to be vaccinated prior to boarding?
We take our vaccination requirements very seriously at My Pet’s Place. We are not only concerned with the health of your pet but also with the health of all the other animals your pet may come in contact with while boarding with us. When making a reservation, the front desk will let you know what vaccination information, if any, we have on file for your pet, and when we show those vaccinations are due to expire. However, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that My Pet’s Place has the required proof of vaccinations prior to boarding. We cannot allow an animal into our boarding facility that is not in compliance with our vaccination requirements.
