What you need to know about your Boarding Visit

As pet pawrents ourselves, we know that leaving your pet for the first time can be stressful! Every trip to Kip Mornington includes a comfortable room, 1-on-1 playtime with our staff, daily photo and video updates, and premium kibble meals, and we encourage pet parents to come visit the accommodation before the trip.

FAQs

Does my pet need to be vaccinated?

All pets must be up to date with their vaccinations and present a current certificate to the team. We are able to care for pets if they’re not desexed. Our vaccination requirements are as follows: 

  • Puppies may board 10 days after their final puppy vaccines as long as they are C5 or equivalent.

  • Kittens may board 10 days after their final kitten vaccines as long as they are F3 or equivalent.

  • Dogs must have an up-to-date C3 or better vaccine and an annual Canine Cough vaccination.

  • Cats must have an up-to-date F3 vaccination.

Does my pet need to be desexed?

We are able to care for pets if they’re not desexed. We do not take dogs in heat across our centres. To the extent your dog comes into heat whilst in our care, we will require an emergency contact to pick them up within 24 hours of being notified. We will not accommodate entire males in the same room as undesexed females.

Can you pick up my pet? When will the pet van come?

Absolutely! Simply contact us at [email protected] so our team can organise the best time for you to tour the premises. 

My pet needs medication! Can you administer it?

Absolutely! For an extra $5/pet/day, we can administer medication to your pets. Please provide all medication in a marked vet bag and provide enough medication for the entire duration of their stay.
