Medications, Serious Illness and Special Care

We do not accept medications that are considered controlled substances, dogs with history of seizures, or dogs diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. We highly recommend boarding with veterinary care for pets with these special needs.

If your pet has active symptoms of illness such as coughing, sneezing, vomiting or loose stool we ask that you refrain from using our services until they are symptom free for 48 hours.

External Parasites

We strive to be a facility free of any parasites. Suite Life Pet Resort and Spa requires all dogs to be on some form of flea and tick control. The staff will perform a once-over of each pet at check-in to ensure they aren't bringing any unwelcome guests into our facility. Should we find any fleas or flea dust on your pet, we will administer a Capstar pill. Capstar is a pill that when ingested, kills fleas within 30 minutes. It is not a preventative against fleas; it only kills the fleas that are currently on your dog. It does not interfere with any current monthly preventative you administer to your dog, nor will it cause any complications with any other medications your dog is currently taking. Capstar does not kill ticks.

We highly recommend all dogs be on Heartworm Preventative. For safety reasons, dogs diagnosed with Heartworms are not permitted in group play. Dogs undergoing Heartworm treatment are not permitted for any services.

Vaccine Requirements

Every dog who comes for Daycare, Boarding, or Grooming must be up to date on their Rabies, Distemper-Parvovirus and Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccines, and must have a clean fecal exam. Rattlesnake and Canine Influenza vaccines are highly recommended but are not required. All vaccines and exams must be documented and have been given by a licensed professional. We do not accept home vaccinations, hand written records or titer tests.

Spayed/Neutering

While it is not a requirement here at Suite Life, it is recommended your dog be Spayed/Neutered before they come for boarding or daycare. It helps provide a safer environment for all dogs. Any dog who is not fixed will have extra supervision and may be limited in their play groups. However we do require all cats to be Spayed/Neutered before coming for boarding

In-Heat or Pregnant

We will NOT accept any dog who is pregnant or in heat when they arrive for their boarding We reserve the right to turn away a dog who is pregnant or in heat at the time of check-in. If a dog comes into heat during her stay, she will not be allowed in any playgroups. We may require her to be picked up by the owner or emergency contact. If you require boarding services for a pet who is pregnant or in heat, it is recommended to stay with a Veterinarian, so they can receive the proper medical attention they may require

Returned Checks and Payments

Returned checks are subject to a $35.00 fee. After receiving a returned check all future payments are to be in the form of cash or credit/debit card only. All payments are due in full at check out. Any nonpayment of services will result in the termination of all future services and you may incur additional charges.

Report cards

Report cards are an email update sent Monday-Fridays of a pets boarding. This services is provided free of charge and is only done when we have the extra time for them to be filled out and sent. We do our best to get them sent out Monday-Friday, but at times when we have a high volume of pets at our facility we are unable to get to them. As always, our primary goal must be the care for your pet. If you do not receive a report card for the day, feel free to give us a call anytime during business hours for an update
