Our lives frequently require that we spend time away from home, and it isn’t always practical to take our pets with us, nor is it possible to find a reliable pet sitter. The other option that pet owners consider is pet boarding in Park City.
Pet Lodging in Park City
One of the concerns many pet owners have about boarding their pet is that many boarders leave their pet in a confining kennel during much of their stay. At White Pine Pet Lodge, we offer something different in dog boarding and cat boarding. Rather than keeping your pets in kennels, they are furnished with spacious 3′ X 6′ cabins, individualized for your pet that include an elevated Karunda bed. Pets are also fed high quality dog food which is appropriate for their age and size, or they may be fed their regular food that their owner furnishes. One of the best things about White Pine Pet Lodge is that it is an extension of White Pine Pet Clinic, which gives your pet access to a veterinarian in Park City UT and provides you with extra assurance that your pet not only has a place to stay, but is cared for as well.
Your Pet’s Stay
Many pet owners have found that having their pet stay at their Park City vet is fitting for a variety of situations, both for daytime stays and overnight stays.
If your pet is only coming for day camp, they can be dropped off between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. If it is your dog boarding at White Pine, they will have outdoor time twice each day with dogs of similar size and temperament to play and socialize with other dogs. They will also be allowed to have their own special toys and blanket in their cabin. If it is your cat boarding, they will also have a great time, and will be given a chance to play on our cat trees and gaze out the window. for a single day is $25.
If your pet’s stay includes one or more overnights, we at White Pine do our best to make sure that your pet remains happy and healthy throughout their stay. Dogs will be provided with a comfortable bed inside their cabin, a specialized toy, such as a Kong or Nylabone and a blanket. All of the dogs get twice daily time in our spacious outdoor area to play with other dogs in small groups (we also have an indoor space for the days when the weather does not cooperate)
Staying overnight costs $38 for dogs and $25 for cats. Pets who are taking medication can have it administered and tracked for an extra $2 per day.
Complete Medical Procedures
One of the best parts about boarding your pet at White Pine is that we are also your veterinarian, which means any medical concerns that arise while you are away can be taken care of. Part of our staff’s training includes knowing how to interpret signs of possible illness in pets and alert the on duty veterinarian if needed. Many standard medical procedures, including routine surgery, dental care, exams, vaccinations, and laboratory work may also be scheduled during your pet’s stay.
For the most part, our boarding policies for pet lodging in Park City are similar to other boarders. Our cabins, although spacious, are for just one pet, and stays are limited to 21 days, unless an exception has been made. All campers, both cats and dogs are required to be up to date on all vaccinations (Distemper, Parvo, Rabies, Bordetella and Canine Influenza) as well as have negative intestinal parasite check in the past year.
