Boarding Agreement

  • Our boarding services are reserved for 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 and have had a physical exam by one of our veterinarians in the past 12 months.

    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:

    Dogs: DHPP (Distemper/Parvo), Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Rabies, Leptospirosis
    Cats: FVRCP, Rabies, Feline Leukemia (FeLV)

    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.
  • Drop-Offs

  • You may drop off your pet between 7:45 am-5:00 pm Monday-Friday and 9:00 am-11:30 am on Saturday.
  • Pick-Ups

  • You may pick up your pet between 10:00 am-1:00 pm or from 2:30 pm-5:00 pm on Monday-Friday and between 10:00 am-11:45 am on Saturday. If your pet had veterinary services during their stay and you wish to speak to a veterinarian, please call ahead to schedule a time. Most dogs staying with us at least two nights tend to receive a complimentary bath before going home. Most cats do not get baths.Please coordinate your pick-up time with us so that we can work to have your pet dry and ready.
  • Sunday Pickup

  • You may pick up your pet between 4:00-4:15 pm on most Sunday afternoons for an additional fee. We offer Sunday pick-ups as a special service for our regular clients and patients when possible and when the following conditions are met:

    1. Arrangements are made ahead of time or at time of drop off.
    2. The stay is prepaid.
    3. The patient does not require veterinary services during the stay other than routine vaccines.

    Holiday Pick-ups will reflect Sunday pickup guidelines.

    Please take your collars and leashes with you when you drop off your pet. Blankets, cloth items, and toys are accepted. Note: items left with your pet could be lost or damaged.
  • Boarding Options

  • Canine: Small (under 25#), Medium (26-40#), Large (41-80#), Giant (over 81#), and Dog Condo
    Feline: Cats and Kittens, Standard Condo, and Large Condo
    Routine Rates are calculated per animal per night with a one night minimum. Canine and Feline condos are available at a higher rate. Additional fees may be added for patients that require higher levels of care.
    • Animals that are deemed destructive to our facilities or are unable to be handled by our staff will not be accepted for boarding.
    • Boarding is for healthy animals requiring routine care. Animals that are critical or likely to become critical during their stay do not qualify for boarding but rather medical boarding/hospitalization instead.
    • I understand that animals boarding away from home are under stress due to the change in environment.
    • I understand pets are predisposed to digestive upsets and respiratory infections, and some unnoticed medical problems may become apparent during their stay.
    • I understand that payment is due in full when the animal is picked up.
    • If I am unable to pick up my pet on the day I have indicated, I will contact Columbus Small Animal Hospital to inform them of my change in plans. If I have not contacted Columbus Small Animal Hospital within 7 days of the pick-up date indicated and/or have balances unpaid, I hereby transfer ownership of my pet to Columbus Small Animal Hospital.
