How is Redgum Vet & Pet Boarding different?
At Redgum Vet & Pet Boarding, your treasured four legged, best friend will be treated to quality care. Our trained staff and on-site Vet perform daily inspections to ensure your pet's health is maintained. Any chages are reported immediately to you, or your nominated representative.
We offer a variety of quality food choices, however, if your dog has specific dietary requirements you may choose to provide their own food. In this way any changes to diet are minimised. At Redgum Vet & Pet Boarding, we promote the highest standards of health and safety for your dog, within the daily cleaning, feeding, and exercising regimes.
Like any good hotel, our pet hotel provides accommodation for singles and doubles. Your pet can have a private bedroom with a very comfortable and freshly cleaned bed to itself. We can also provide twin share accommodation for those pets who like to snuggle up and play together.
We aim to let your dogs have as much time outside as possible, weather permitting. We have a number of generous areas for dogs to play with carers or to run around on their own. If you nominate, your dog can be socialised wth other dogs of the same size or sex. Female dogs will always be kept separate from male dogs that still have the ability to father puppies. Our fences and grounds are safe and secure, with several checks between the kennels and the front of the premises.
Cats are housed in generous indoor areas with full access to an outdoor run. Your cat will be secure in airconditioned comfort with a variety of play options. Cats are not socialised, except within the same family.
Our point of difference is that we allow dogs to act like dogs. We encourage play and socialisation. For example during the warmer months, we use many wading pools, which the dogs love to play in. Of course, this means they may get dirty as they run and play, however, we believe exercise and play are important to the general well-being and health of all dogs. Of course, if you would prefer you pet not be included in these activities, we will respect your wishes.
What do I need to do if I want to board my pet?
All cats and dogs need to have current vaccination records (F3 for cats and C5 for dogs). If your vaccination is out of date, your pet can be booked in to see Dr. Absalom for an update. The Vet Nursing staff cand iscuss this with you when you make your booking.
Cats also need to have been flea treated, and dogs need to be flea and tick treated. Don't worry if you don't have access to these products; our Vet Nurses can discuss this with you and recommend an appropriate product for your pet at the point of entry.
If you wish, you can bring some items to help make your dog feel even more at home. We will talk to you about approved items when making your booking.
There is some more information which the team will collect when you book in; this is just so that we can take the best care possible of your treasured pet. From time to time, the staff will review this information, in case there have been any changes in your pet's needs.
You can rest assured knowing your pet is cared for by trained staff, with Vet Nurses and a practicing Vet on-site.
