Pet boarding is a helpful service for anyone with pets when going on vacation, and there are many benefits to it. It is great to know you are leaving your pet in a comfortable facility with people who will give them lots of attention and love, as well as take care of their daily needs and have fun.

When leaving your best friend at a pet boarding facility like All Star Pet Resort, it’s helpful to know what you’ll need to bring to ensure that they have a great stay, and you can have peace of mind during your entire vacation. Review this list of essentials to get prepped for your pet boarding stay.

Essentials For Pet Boarding

Required Documents

As with all pet boarding facilities, All Star requires proof of vaccinations. For dogs, you’ll need a current vaccination certificate from your vet, including proof of:

  • Current Rabies (within 12 months or 36 months)
  • Bordetella within the last 6 months
  • Current Distemper/Parvo (DHLPP)
  • Tick prevention

For cats, you’ll also need a current vaccination certificate from your vet, including proof of:

  • Current Rabies (within 12 months or 36 months)
  • Current Feline Distemper (FVRCP)
  • Tick prevention

Preferably, all vaccinations need to be done two weeks prior to boarding. Additionally, please write down your contact phone number(s) and email(s), in case of an emergency or for any questions.

Food

While All Star provides complimentary food and water for any pets who are boarding here, you are welcome to bring your pet’s food, especially if they have specific dietary needs. If you do decide to bring your own food, please label it with your pet’s name and instructions for feeding.

Medications

If your pet requires medication, All Star is happy to administer it to them at no extra charge, as long as the medication is in the original labeled container. Unfortunately, All Star does not offer injections. If you are bringing medication, please also bring along treats to dispense the medication with.

Favorite Bedding

Even though All Star’s condos are comfortable and spacious, your pet may feel more comfortable having their favorite blanket or bedding during their boarding stay. If so, please be sure to pack it.

Favorite Toys

Feel free to bring one or more of your pet’s favorite toys, so they will play and enjoy themselves to the fullest during their pet boarding experience.

List Of Special Needs

If your pet has any special needs, it is helpful to know about them. For example, your pet may be afraid of storms, they may be prone to biting, or they may be a persistent barker. Additionally, please inform the staff about any behavioral problems that your cat or dog may show during their stay.

Get Ready For An Awesome Pet Boarding Experience

Once you’ve checked off everything on this list of packing essentials, your pet will be ready for the best pet boarding experience possible, and you can have a great time while you are out of town.
