Boarding

holiday dogAnimal Medical Clinic offers both full-service veterinary care and high class boarding accommodations. Our boarding facility is clean and cheery and is staffed by caring attendants who will love your pet. If your pet becomes ill while boarding, the doctors on duty will be notified to examine your pet immediately. You will also be notified to give permission for any non-emergency treatment.

Accommodations:

  • Dogs - We provide air-conditioned runs and cages for canines to allow us to best accommodate your pets according to their lifestyle.
    • Runs: 4 ft. x 8 ft.
    • Cages: 3 ½ ft. x 3 ft.
    • Dogs are individually leash walked outside at least 3 times a day, more if needed.
  • Cats - Felines prefer to be in a quieter environment than their canine friends. We provide a separate room for them to relax and enjoy their stay.
    • Cages: 3 ½ ft. x 3 ft.

We provide plenty of toys, blankets and bowls here for your pet’s comfort. We prefer not to take any personal belongings in our boarding facility, so we ask if you can keep personal items at home for them to enjoy upon their return.


Feeding:

  • We normally feed our boarders Science Diet twice a day. If you wish to bring in your own food we will be happy to feed it as directed. We also carry certain prescription diets. Please ask for a list to make sure your food is covered in our boarding prices.
  • Fresh water is available at all times.

Services:

  • Baths - While your pet is here we offer bathing services for your pet at additional charges. Our baths include:
    1. Ear Cleaning
    2. Nail Trimming
    3. Anal Gland Expression if needed

Special Care:

There are certain situations in which pets have special needs, and normal boarding rates do not apply. Please ask us about our Special Care rates. Some of these conditions are:
1. Diabetic boarders
2. Medical boarders – any that require more than 6 medication administrations per day.
3. Aggressive boarders

Holiday Boarding:

  • Holiday policies are in effect for New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day weekend, Independence Day, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • Early boarding reservations are for existing clients only.  When the holiday is two weeks away, reservations open for new clients.
  • A $50 dollar deposit will be required at the time a holiday reservation is made. If the reservation is cancelled, the deposit will be refunded only if we are able to fill the spot from our waiting list.

 

Long Term Boarding and New Customers:

Long term boarders are those that stay with us for more than 14 days. We ask that two weeks be paid in advance. If the plan is to leave them for a month or more, then we require clients to leave a credit card number. We will bill it every two weeks. When an animal is boarding for 7-29 days there is a 10% discount on boarding fees. If here for 30 days or more there is a 20% discount.

New Clients - We require that new clients pay at least half the boarding estimate in advance.


Requirements to Board:

In order to board your pets, we require the following vaccinations. We strongly recommend these vaccinations to be given at least one week prior to boarding; however we will administer upon admission, if necessary.

  • Dogs
    1. Distemper
    2. Rabies
    3. Kennel Cough (Bordetella)
    4. A negative test of internal parasites within the past year
  • Cats
    1. Rabies
    2. RCP (Upper Respiratory)

If your pet received vaccines elsewhere, we will need written proof of vaccinations from a previous veterinarian. If necessary, the doctor can administer them with an exam. Additional fees will be charged accordingly.

Sunday/Holiday pickup hours are 8am-10am and 4pm-6pm.
