General Information

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.

  • Owner supplied food that is not properly proportioned will be subject to an added charge of $1.00 per day for each day your pet is with us.
  • All guests receive treats on a daily basis. If you pet has any food allergies or digestive disorder, please inform us of such and feel free to bring one small bag of treats for your pet’s stay.


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.
