Dogs need to be updated on DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
Cats need to be updated on FVRCP and Rabies
We recommend that all vaccines be given at least 2 weeks prior to boarding to insure adequate protection.
Each dog has their own individual indoor and outdoor pen. These pens have a door that connects to their own outside area. The double pens are anywhere from 40 to 56 square feet (4 by 10 or 4 by 14 feet) and comes complete with bedding. They have heat, central air conditioning and the kennel is climate controlled year round. In conjunction with the climate control, we also have air-exchange units which are constantly circulating and changing the inside air with outside air to help eliminate air born contagions and odors. We follow a strict sanitation policy by pressure washing and disinfecting the inside and outside areas 3 times a day.
We have separate facilities for cats. Each cat has a pen with a shelf and bedding. The cats are kept in their own private area. They are even kept on a separate floor from the dogs. That way, they can have a peaceful, relaxing stay with little stress and minimal noise. They are individually handled and get plenty of attention.
The advantage of boarding your pet at an animal hospital is if your pet gets sick or has any physical problems, there is a veterinarian on the premise that can perform treatment. The disadvantage is that your pet may be exposed to other pets that are sick. At Brian's Kennels we have a better solution. We are structurally connected to an animal hospital, but they are in a separate building. This way we can offer full veterinary services and keep the animal hospital patients in a completely separate area.
HANCOCK ANIMAL HOSPITAL HAS LIMITED HOURS. IF AN EMERGENCY HAPPENS TO ONE OF OUR FOUR LEGGED GUEST DURING THEIR STAY WE MAY HAVE TO SEEK OTHER ANIMAL HOSPITALS IN THE AREA FOR VETERINARY MEDICAL CARE.
