Food, Vet & Medication

We do not charge extra to properly care for your dog 🙂

Feeding Your Pet

To minimize disruption to your pet’s schedule, we recommend you use food your pet is familiar with. However, Wye River Kennel can provide food, at no additional cost.

When providing your own food, please ensure each meal is separately portioned. Additional charges may apply if kennel staff must portion food for you.

All guests receive treats daily. If your pet has food allergies, please notify us at check in. We are happy to give your pet special treats, that you supply, if requested.


If your pet is on any medication, we require the pills be portioned out in a pill container for the duration of their stay. Please provide specific instructions upon check-in for your pet’s medication. A $1 per meal charge is added for medication in pill form. A $3 per dosage is added per injectable administered. We recommend you provide a little extra medication in the event your pet’s stay is unexpectedly extended.

Vet Information

To ensure the health and safety of your pet and others, Wye River Kennel must have proof of the following current vaccinations:

  • Required for Dogs: Rabies, Bordatella, Distemper and Parvo.
  • Recommended, but not required for Dogs: Flu, Lepto, Lyme

Note: Bordatella must have been administered at least 72 hours before boarding to be effective. If you are unable to get an appointment with your veterinarian in time, we can administer the vaccination if you bring your pet(s) by at least 3 days prior to their stay for a $30 fee.

Please note it is the owner’s responsibility to obtain vet records and email to

Required for cats: Rabies, Feline Distemper

SHOT RECORDS: It is the owner's responsibility to obtain their pet's shots records and provide them to Wye River Kennel.

The Return Home

Expect your pet to take a day or two to get back to normal. It is not unusual for your pet’s bathroom, eating and drinking habits to be a little off the mark.

Also, don’t be surprised if your pet is tired when he or she gets home. As play time is encouraged, most pets are very active here at Wye River Kennel.
