We will provide all the necessary items to administer medications such as hot dogs, cheese, pill pockets, etc. For those pets who will not easily take their medications, we use various methods/food items to entice them. However, we will not jeopardize the safety of our staff to force a pet to take their medication and/or cooperate with giving eye/ear drops. If your pet‘s health is dependent upon receiving medications, and they are shy/skittish or aggressive, we suggest boarding them in a veterinary office where you can be assured they receive the necessary medical attention.
Pills and ear/eye drops for cooperative animals are administered at no additional charge.
If your pet needs more extensive attention to administer medications (i.e. bandage changing, daily maintenance for chronic conditions, etc.) please contact us to discuss your pet's needs and determine if there will be an additional charge.
Additional fees may be applied if an animal is uncooperative and manual coercion is needed.
Many pets who are on several medications or need special attention while boarding with us may benefit from staying in our Senior Studios.
We are able to administer medications between 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily. If your pet must have their medications outside of these time frames, you may want to seek alternative boarding options.
We enjoy having your pet stay with us and are happy to administer medications. However, we want you to be aware of limitations and conflicts that can occur when boarding and your pet may not take their medication the same way that they do at home. Due to this, please do not put medication in your baggies of food. We prefer to administer them individually to ensure they are consumed.
If you have any questions about your pet being given medications during these hours or any other health concerns, please contact our office (317-351-0511) prior to making a reservation to discuss in more detail.
