Countryview Kennels
We have boarded our cats when we traveled for 25 years. They are the BEST! The individual kennels are larger than other places. When one of my cats became ill while we were gone, they took him immediately to our vet.
Tips & Advices
Most kennels can provide basic care such as administering medications, but owners of pets with serious medical issues should choose a facility with a veterinarian on call.
Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough, is highly contagious, and most dogs catch it at least once in their lifetimes. As such, all dogs should be vaccinated at least 7 days before boarding.
Vaccination requirements vary between facilities, but a good rule of thumb is to give dogs the rabies, Bordetella (kennel cough), and DAPP (canine distemper, canine adenovirus type 1, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza) or DA2PP (distemper, adenovirus type 2, parvovirus, and parainfluenza) vaccines. Cats should get the FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) and rabies vaccines
Kennels and pet boarding facilities generally incorporate exercise or play time into the cost of a night's stay. Dogs often get one or two walks per day as well as access to a solitary or group play area. Cats also get a large room to play in filled with toys, scratching posts, and climbing towers.
Basic accommodations include a sleeping area and scheduled food and water. The average kennel or pet boarding facility also offers ample play areas and toys to keep pets entertained. Some also provide simple grooming services like baths and nail trimmings.
