To be known as “BVH” in the below policy.

All pet(s) must be healthy, and current on all vaccinations. Vaccines required by BVH are:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Para-influenza
  • Parvo
  • Leptospirosis
  • Influenza H3N2 strain
  • Bordetella

Vaccines must be administered by a licensed veterinarian. A copy of your pet(s) updated vaccination records from your vet is required prior to starting daycare or board with us to ensure your pet(s) safety as well as that of our other guests. These requirements also include the Bordetella vaccine for dogs and an Intestinal Parasite Screen with negative results that have been done in the past year for all pet(s).

  • Dogs/cats with fleas or ticks will be treated at the owner’s expense.

  • Boarding fees are based on per night, and additional fees will be assessed for the administration of medications. The boarding check-in/out hours are Monday-Friday 8:00am-6:00pm and Saturdays 8:00am-1:00pm.

  • BVH is closed on Sundays to the public and boarding check-ins/outs are not available.

  • BVH uses Purina EN (Gastrointestinal Chicken/Rice). Although Purina EN decreases the risk of gastrointestinal issues; abrupt change in diet may cause an upset stomach and/or diarrhea. If your pet is on a special diet, please bring their food with them in a sufficient quantity for the duration of their stay. In the Cattery we use Pro Plan Salmon and Rice.

  • Owners are welcome to bring their own blankets, beds, or toys; however, we cannot guarantee that these items will be returned in the same condition or at all.

  • For safety and liability reasons, we do not board pet(s) that may have contagious infections or who may be too aggressive for our staff to handle safely.

  • If a pet(s) becomes ill or otherwise requires medical attention, BVH will use contact numbers provided by you on this boarding form, if BVH is unable to reach you, we will treat your pet(s) accordingly, and you will be responsible for all charges.

  • If there is a life-threatening situation, and we are unable to reach you or your emergency contact, then the attending Veterinarian will make the necessary decision(s) based on what is best for your pet(s). This may include being transferred to an Emergency/Specialty Hospital or regrettably, euthanasia. You will be responsible for all charges incurred at the referral hospital.

  • Please be aware that by leaving pet(s) at BVH, or any other pet facility, the pet(s) is at risk of being exposed to contagious diseases. BVH maintains a high standard of cleanliness and safety for your pet(s) and does everything possible to minimize risk.
