Boarding

Our hospital is proud to provide Columbus, NE, and the surrounding communities with boarding services. We practice the highest standards of care and cleanliness for patients staying with us. We know that it takes a great deal of trust to leave your pet with someone else, so we want to assure you that we are professional, highly trained, and most of all, we love pets.

Our boarding services are reserved for our clinics active clients and patients. Access to our boarding facility is only provided to individuals and animals for whom we also serve as a primary veterinarian for other routine services. In order to protect your pet, as well as those belonging to other people, we require written proof that your pet is up to date on the following vaccinations:

We also require that your pet is free from external parasites. If during the period of boarding we find that your pet has external parasites such as fleas, lice or mites, treatment will be administered at your cost.

Please take your collars, leashes and carriers with you when you drop off your pet. We do not accept blankets or cloth items other than toys. We purchase specially made textile which is manufactured and marketed for the sole purpose of providing safe and comfortable bedding for dogs and cats.

Most animals staying with us longer than two nights will recieve a complimentary HydroSurge and massaging bath before going home. Please coordinate your pick up time with us. We will work to have your pet dry and ready.

Routine Rates are figured per night, with one night minimum. Additional fees may be added for patients that require additional attention and/or higher levels of care.

Our boarding is for healthy animals requiring routine care. Animals that are critical or likely to become critical during the stay do not qualify for boarding but rather hospitalization.
