Medications and Vaccinations
  • The Family & MWR Pet Kennels require that all pets have the required vaccinations. Proofs of vaccinations are required with each reservation. Dogs and puppies must have adequate vaccinations Distemper (can be an annual or a three year vaccination depending on the pet’s age) and Bordetella also known as the kennel cough vaccination (required every six months). Since we are an outdoor facility, we highly recommend that your pet also be vaccinated against Leptospirosis. Cats and kittens must have adequate vaccinations for feline Distemper, FVRCP. We recommend additionally vaccinating your cat for FeLV.
  • All pets must be free of fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites.
  • Pets must be medicated to control external parasites with some kind of prescription strength product. Some acceptable products include: Frontline, Advantix, Revolution, Trifexis, NEX, Comboguard, sentinel, etc. Please ask your doctor what is right for your pet in this environment. If your pet is not already on a flea and tick preventative, the product must have been applied 3 days before boarding your pet.
  • Pets are required to be on a monthly heartworm preventive (for example: Heartgard). Please ask your doctor what is right for your pet in this environment.
  • Pets must also be free from internal parasites. Please bring evidence of an annual fecal test.
  • If your animal requires medication, we can administer medications with the exception of injections.
    • $1 per medicine
    • $2 per dosage per pet


  • IMPORTANT: Any medication must be accompanied by the original packaging or container with proper label. We cannot accept a zip lock bag full of pills, vitamins, or anything else. If your pet is on a regiment of multiple medications and you normally use a “seven-day pill organizer “ of some kind, feel free to provide that for us. Please also include the prescription bottles on the side so that if any questions arise, we can identify the medication as needed.
