Your Pet’s Home Away from Home
We promise to care for all Eno pets as if they were our own. We will love your fur baby almost as much as you do! Our kennel assistants are highly trained to give the best in care, cleanliness, attention, play, exercise, snuggles, and spoiling.
We provide soft blankets and cozy bedding. We use our own food and water bowls. We do all we can to make sure your pet feels safe and comfortable.
Your pet may eat his or her exact diet, if you supply that food, or our easily digestible in-house dry food for $2 per day.
We check on pets at least three times a day—and often many more just because we love them! We meticulously track eating, drinking, and elimination habits. If we ever notice anything even slightly amiss, we immediately alert a member of the medical team.
We’re happy to give lots of love. Or if your pet prefers peace and quiet, that’s OK, too. We can usually make special accommodations and go above and beyond to do what’s best for each unique boarding fur baby.
Yes! To join the Eno family, call our team or book a visit online. We need to meet your pet and establish care before a boarding reservation. Remember you get $40 off your first visit.
Just like in human medicine, veterinarians must legally and ethically establish a doctor/patient relationship with all pets in our care. (We’re a private hospital, not a doggy daycare or public boarding facility.) Your vet will perform a full physical exam and update any core vaccines required to keep all boarding pets safe. See our Boarding Policies below for details.
Please book boarding as far in advance as possible. We want to put a two-week cushion between your pet’s first visit and boarding stay.
Why? #1: We want to make sure your fur baby is comfortable with us! Our Fear Free pros will assess your pet’s emotional health score and determine if boarding is the best option. Pets with high fear, anxiety, and stress do much better at home with a sitter.
In fact, pets with a high FAS (“fear, anxiety, and stress”) score can suffer trauma being boarded: refusing to eat, shaking and whimpering, showing fear aggression, and worse. This is awful for your fur baby and dangerous to our team.
We only accept boarding pets with FAS scores of 3 or below and require our “chill protocol” for any pets with medium FAS scores. We welcome and encourage you to book a trial boarding period for your pet! Even a night or two can help us see what’s best for your unique fur baby.
#2. A pet who needs core vaccines will have two weeks of protection on board when coming to stay in our boarding facilities. The health and safety of all pets in our care is always our top priority.
We must ensure the health and safety of every pet in our hospital. Boarding pets must have a current Eno wellness exam (within the last year) and be current on core vaccinations.
For dogs, core vaccines are rabies, distemper/parvo, Bordetella, and canine influenza. Boarding dogs must also have an intestinal parasite screen to ensure they are free of contagious worms. For cats, core vaccines are rabies and feline distemper. Exceptions may be granted by your Eno veterinarian only for medical (not financial or personal) reasons.
If fleas or ticks are found on your pet, we must provide appropriate treatment immediately, at additional cost, both to help your pet and prevent the spread of external parasites in our hospital.
If your pet requires a wellness exam, vaccines, or any other care, please call us to schedule a vet visit. Make sure to book your pet’s visit well in advance of the intended boarding stay! Demand is quite high, and we book up fast.
Eno is a full-service animal hospital, but we are not open 24/7 and are not an emergency facility. Your boarding pet will be given our utmost care and attention, but he or she will not be supervised overnight.
We practice the best safety. No harnesses or leashes are ever left on boarding pets. Towels, blankets, bedding, toys, and the like will never be left in your pet’s room or run if there is any chance he or she may ingest them.
There is a daily fee for administering medications and monitoring pets on medication. When you check-in, you must provide a list of your pet’s medications and indicate dosage, frequency, and when last given. Medications must be in their original containers with original prescription labels.
We require an emergency contact name and number: someone you authorize to make medical decisions for and/or pick up your pet. We will make every attempt to reach you in the rare event your pet requires urgent care or unexpected treatment.
Boarding pets may take a day or two to settle in at Eno. This is normal! If your pet is too stressed to eat at first, we will offer various foods to entice him or her. If a stressed pet has not eaten for 72 hours, our urgent care protocol kicks in, and we will make every attempt to reach you and then your emergency contact.
We charge by the night and by weight.
- Up to 25 pounds: $32 per night
- 26 to 50 pounds: $34 per night
- 51+ pounds: $36 per night
Our boarding charge is simply $25 per night per room. If you choose to reserve two connecting rooms, the charge is $50 per night.
In our fenced-in walking area, your pup will safely have three walks a day. We love to walk dogs; we love the fresh air, exercise, play—and kisses!
