Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring with my pet?
At Abbott's we provide everything your pet will need including food, bedding, bowls, litter boxes, etc; however we do recommend you bring your pets' food (in a sealed plastic container or baggie) to avoid an upset stomach from an abrupt change in diet. You're welcome to bring your pets' chew toys as long as they will not eat them. Please do not bring dog beds, dog crates, soft plushies, or rawhide.
What vaccinations does my pet need?
For Dogs: Bordetella, Rabies, and DHPPC.
For Cats: Rabies and FVRCP.
All vaccines must be given by a licensed veterinarian!
While it is not required, we greatly encourage you to keep your pet on regular flea, tick, and heartworm prevention!
Please have your vet fax us your vaccine records at 336-370-8498.
What is included with overnight boarding?
While your dog is staying with us they will be in their own indoor-outdoor kennel, receive two individual walk times in the morning and evening, two daily feedings (unless otherwise requested), constant access to clean water, and lots of love and attention.
Will my pet be interacting with other animals?
No. We do not co-mingle here at Abbott's. Your pet will be able to see other animals and socialize from a distance. Dogs from the same family are welcome to stay together. Please let us know if they need to be fed separately.
What if my pet has a medical emergency?
You will be contacted immediately and we will discuss further action with you 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.
Are there additional services to add to my pet's boarding stay?
We offer an extra walk time, solo play, and a clean up bath before departure.
Bath prices will depend on the dog's size and coat.
Extra walks are $3/day.
Solo play is $5/day.
Please give us a call if you have any other questions!
