Sunday: NO drop-offs. Pick-up time is between 4:00pm-5:00pm.
- Can I bring my pet's bedding and toys?
Due to safety and sanitary limitations, we cannot accept any personal belongings (i.e. beds, blankets, stuffed toys etc.). SportsVet will provide all the necessary bedding to keep your pet cozy and comfortable. Rawhides, bully sticks, and other consumable bones are not permitted as they pose a choking hazard, Nylabones or similar indestructible chews are permitted.
- What kind of food do you provide?
Guests can bring their own food with them, we will happily serve it them as directed. If you prefer to not supply your pet's regular food, we will provide Purina EN for them. Purina EN is a prescription diet that is specially formulated to be gentle and easy to digest. It helps to prevent GI troubles when switching foods. We cannot accept large containers and bags of food due to storage space.
- My pet has medications, will you administer these during their stay?
We will provide a qualified staff member to administer oral and/or topical medications for an additional fee. Guests requiring specialized care are handled on a case-by-case basis - some pets may require Hospitalized Boarding depending on their individual needs. If your pet has special needs, please bring it up when scheduling so we can be sure to meet his/her needs. All medications must be provided by the owner and clearly labeled with written instructions, the pet's name, type of medication, reason for medication, dosage, and administration schedule.
- How far in advance should I book my pet's stay?
Boarding reservations are first come, first serve. We recommend that you book your reservation as soon as you know the dates you will need for your pet's stay. Especially during holidays and long breaks, it's always best to book your reservation well in advance to secure your spot.
- What is Capstar and why is this necessary?
Checking each pet for live fleas is not a sure way to know there aren't any fleas present, we do our best but cannot always find them. To protect all pets coming into our facility, we administer Capstar to everyone. This is a safe, fast-acting oral flea medication. It can be used in both dogs and cats, and is safe for both puppies and kittens. Any live fleas on a pet will be killed in as little as 30 minutes after administration. It does not provide long term flea prevention, but is a reliable way to be certain that none of our guests are at risk during their time here.
- What does a playtime entail?
For dogs staying with us over the weekend, we offer individualized play sessions on Saturday and Sundays. A trained staff member will spend quality one-on-one exercise time with your pet in the climate-controlled indoor play area or outside in the securely-fenced, specially designed canine environment. We provide interactive toys to enhance your pet's play time. There is an additional fee of $20/day for this service.
- When is payment due?
Boarding fees are collected upon pickup. Failure to pay entire balance will results in your pet(s) no longer being welcome at our facility. During holidays and events, we require a credit card number to hold your reservation. Your card will be charged a set rate per reserved day if you cancel less than 48 hours in advance.
- What are the boarding fees at SportsVet's Pet Resort?
Standard Runs are $26.00 per night.
Luxury Suites are $40.00 per night.
We offer a 30% discount for additional pets from the same household staying in the same run or suite (maximum of 2 dogs in standard runs, maximum of 3 dogs in luxury suites).

Our fees follow a similar schedule to a human hotel. After check-in, you are charged for each night your pet stays with us. If a pet is not picked up by the designated check-out time, additional fees will apply.
