Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring with my dog?
At Abbott's, we provide everything your pet needs including food, bedding, and bowls; however we do recommend you bring your dogs' food (in a sealed plastic container or ziplock bag) to avoid an upset stomach from changing their diet. You are welcome to bring toys for your pet as long as they will not eat them.
If your dog needs medication, please bring it in the original prescription bottle.
Please label everything with your last name and/or your dogs' name.
What vaccines does my pet need?
For dogs: Bordetella, Rabies, & DHPPC (Distemper/Parvo)
For cats: Rabies & FVRCP (Rhinotracheitis/Calicivirus/Panleukopenia)
Please have your vet fax us your vaccine records at 336-370-8498.
What comes with nightly boarding?
While your dog is staying with us, they will receive two daily walks in the morning and evening, two feedings (unless otherwise requested), constant access to water, and lots of love and attention.
Will my dog be interacting with other dogs?
We do not co-mingle dogs at Abbott's. Your dog will have their own kennel and have their own walk time.
Your dog will have non-contact interactions, while seeing other dogs from a distance.
What if my dog has a medical emergency?
If there is ever an emergency with your pet, you will be contacted immediately. We will discuss further action with you, the owner, and make decisions based on the situation. If we can't get in touch with you we will take your pet to your preferred veterinarian or if after hours, an emergency vet.
Can I pay for additional services for my dog?
Yes. We offer extra walks, an extra playtime and a clean up bath before departure.
Baths depend on coat, size and breed.
We don't give baths or nail trims on 1st boarding visits in an effort to not overwhelm your dog.
Can I have someone else drop off/pick up my dog for me?
For first time clients, you must drop off your own pet in order to fill out our contract and paperwork. After that, yes someone else may drop off/pick up your pet.
We must be notified in advance who will be dropping off/picking up. Payment should also be arranged in advance.
How far in advance do I need to make my appointment?
Please contact us as soon as possible with your reservation dates. Our kennel could possibly fill up two months before a big holiday.
Can I tour the Facility?
Everyone is welcome to come see our facility. Please give us a call to schedule a time. Tours are given Tuesday-Friday.
Can my dogs stay together?
Yes. Dogs from the same family can stay in the same run. Please let us know if they need to be fed separately.
