To protect your pet as well as the others staying with us, your pet must be current on all vaccinations prior to boarding. If vaccinations are not current, we will be happy to arrange an exam and have vaccines administered prior to the time of boarding. If vaccinations are done with another veterinarian, you can either bring the written pet record with you at the time of boarding or have your veterinarian's office fax a copy to 207-647-5199.

Our staff Veterinarian is available during business hours to provide treatment for any health problems that you are aware of while your pet is staying with us. Please notify our staff of any problems you would like examined, or anything you might like updated.
We will take all due care, but we are not responsible for any personal belongings left with your pet.
When your pet returns home, please do not let him/her eat or drink excessively. This is because of over excitement and often causes vomiting and diarrhea. Wait at least one hour before giving a small portion of food or water. Please call if you have any questions.
