Your Pet’s Safety & Health is Our #1 Priority
Serving St. Louis Pet Parents since 1974, we certainly understand that finding a trusted pet care provider for your dog or cat can be an emotional and difficult decision.
At Kennelwood Pet Resorts, we’re committed to treating all our guests to the highest level of care. The health and safety of your pet is our number one priority, and we’re firm believers in transparency when it comes to communicating with Pet Parents.
Healthy Paws Program:
In keeping with our goal to maintain a safe and healthy environment for pets, Kennelwood is introducing our Healthy Paws Program. The Healthy Paws Program makes it easy for the Pet Parent and Kennelwood to take care of the veterinarian’s expenses.
For $10 per pet per boarding visit, the Healthy Paws Program covers the cost of unexpected illness or injury while the pet is boarding with us, up to $500.
The program does exclude pre-existing conditions, breed-specific conditions, and bloat.
Additionally, the Healthy Paws Program includes administering any medication or supplements for your pet during their stay, complimentary meals from our resort’s in-house food options, as well as laundry service for personal belongings.

At Kennelwood Pet Resorts, we make the safety and health of all pets in our care our number one priority. All Kennelwood clients must adhere to a strict vaccination policy. However, the Bordetella vaccination only protects our pets from a few of the numerous strains. At Kennelwood, we follow a strict cleaning regimen numerous times per day.
Tracheobronchitis, also known as Canine Cough, is a contagious upper respiratory illness that can be spread through the air or physical contact. It can spread from dog to dog through greetings, play, shared objects, or communal surfaces.
Canine Cough is very similar to the human cold in that the illness is not usually severe, and most dogs can get over it on their own. However, it can reduce their resistance to other secondary infections, such as pneumonia.
If your pet is experiencing any symptoms, we strongly suggest that you consult your veterinarian. Symptoms can include a persistent cough or hack, nasal discharge, sneezing, and/or fever. If your pet is experiencing any of the above symptoms, we ask that you keep them at home until he or she has been symptom-free for two weeks.
Canine Cough can be spread through the air or physical contact. It can spread from dog to dog through greetings, play, shared objects, or communal surfaces. Dog parks, neighborhood walks, veterinarian offices, dog shows, field trials, and boarding/daycare facilities are common places for exposure. Parents can even bring it home on their shoes and clothing.
