Food: We prefer you bring your own food from home to prevent upsetting your pet’s stomach. We feed our pets with a standard measuring cup or you may bring your own scoop. All our pets are fed twice a day or according to their schedule at home. We also have a refrigerator, microwave and freezer for any special dietary requirements.
Past Health Problems or Behavioral Problems: It is important for us to be aware of any past health issues, or behavioral problems. Our staff need to know if your dog has experienced any of the following: bloating, seizures, heart murmurs, eye or ear infections, constipation, diarrhea, tumors, urinary tract infections, arthritis, allergies, etc. Please let our staff be aware of any aggressive tendencies towards people, food, dogs, etc.
Emergency Contact Numbers: We will require an emergency contact number regarding the care of your pet, as well as your vets name and number. In the event of an emergency, we will always attempt to contact you prior to contacting your emergency contact. If we cannot reach you, your emergency contact will be responsible for any decisions that need to be made regarding your pet’s health.
Bedding & Bowls: Both bedding and bowls are provided by us fresh daily and we do accept your pet’s personal bedding and bowls from home.
Leashes and Toys: Our staff does all of our walks on a leash and collar. If you use a Gentle Leader or harness, please leave it with us for your pet. You may bring toys from home, however, we do not recommend small toys that may roll out under the gate and become lost. We are not responsible for lost leashes, toys, etc.
*Please bring your pet into the office on a leash or in a carrier for the safety of your pet and other people’s pets.
Departure: On The Day Your Pet Goes Home
You need to bring your leash, we usually send them back home with you at the time of arrival.
The bill must be paid in full at the time of departure. For your convenience, Homestead Pet Resort & Spa accepts: Cash, Checks, Visa, Discover, and MasterCard. You may pay ahead of time if your friend is picking up your pet for you, but we do not release a pet without payment. (If there are any persons you do not wish us to release your pet to, please make sure we are aware of this.)
If your departure date changes, please notify us 24 hours in advance. If you plan to pick your pet up earlier than the scheduled departure, we need to be notified so we may bathe your pet if needed and we can make arrangements to fill your pre-arranged spot with another customer.
Please do not give your pet a lot of water or food when they arrive home. It is natural for your pet to be excitable and appear thirsty. Your dog needs to settle at home for awhile before you give him water and food. We provide fresh water all day long. If you give your dog a lot of water and food, you are running the risk of diarrhea and vomiting, due to nerves and excitement.
You may find your cat sheds a great deal when it comes to car rides and changes in surroundings. A pet carrier is a good way of transporting your cat around.
If you experience any problems or have any questions concerning your pet’s stay with us please call and talk to us at 785.872.3200.
