Bookings

Bookings are required to ensure we have space for your pet. Out of holiday periods we are usually able to take short notice bookings, however book early to secure a place during holidays, especially Christmas and Easter.

It is always appreciated that where a booking is no longer needed, we are contacted so that we can free the booking space for another pet.

Boarding Rates

Rates are calculated per animal, per night.

Cats:

$25pn*

Dogs:

Small dogs (weigh less than 10kgs) $25pn*

Medium dogs (weigh between 10 & 20kgs) $30pn*

Large dogs (weigh more than 20kgs) $35pn*

Food

Boarding rates include food for your pet, however if your pet is on a prescription or special diet, we request that you bring along enough of their food for the duration of the stay.

Although we do our best to provide high quality food for your pet following their usual feeding schedule, sudden diet changes can cause tummy upsets. 

Vaccinations

All pets boarding with us are required to be fully vaccinated, with their last vaccination being in the last 12 months. If your pet becomes due for their vaccination whilst boarding, we are more than happy to vaccinate your pet during this time.

Dogs require a minimum C5 vaccination and cats require a minimum F5 vaccination. Vaccination Certificates must be sighted by staff when the pet comes in for boarding.

Parasite Control

Pets which come in for boarding must be parasite free, this means being up to date with their intestinal worming, heartworm prevention as well as flea and tick protection.

Upon arrival, our staff will check your pet for fleas and if fleas are found your pet will be given flea treatment at the owner’s expense.

Personal Items

If you would like to bring along any of your dog’s personal items for them during their stay, please do. Whilst all care is taken, we cannot be held responsible for damage to these items (for example if you bring in a dog bed and the dog tears it up).

Who will be looking after my pet?

Our kennels and cattery are mainly looked after by our qualified vet nurse and a vet nurse undertaking work experience. Pets are monitored regularly and records are kept on how they are eating, drinking, toileting etc. If any concerns arise, the vet is notified immediately.

On weekends our dedicated Vet and the Practice Manager comes into the clinic to care for your pet.
