Boarding FAQ’s

Must Meet All Vaccinations.

All boarded pets are required to be current on the following vaccinations:

Canine: DHPP, 6-Month Bordetella (Canine Cough), Rabies and a negative fecal test (annually)

Feline: FVRCP, FELV, Rabies

One week prior to boarding your pet, we ask all clients to provide us with written proof of vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian. If current vaccines cannot be verified we will vaccinate your pet prior to boarding at North Valley Vet Clinic. Remember that vaccinations prevent disease.


We Want Your Pet to Chow Down

Some pets refuse to eat while boarding. When this happens, we will offer your pet canned food in place of dry or even mixed in with the dry to encourage them to eat. With this in mind, a change in diet added with the stress of being away from home will sometimes cause diarrhea. We feed all boarding dogs Iams Low Residue. Boarding cats are fed Science Diet. If your pet eats a different product, please bring it with you when you check in.


Toys for your Pet

We allow your pet to have chew bones, but only those that are digestible. We do not want your pet eating a toy that could possibly cause internal problems.


Some of the most common boarding problems that occur while your pet is boarding or after it goes home:

  • Diarrhea and vomiting
  • Not eating
  • Depression

If the above symptoms occur for more than 24 hours after arriving home, please call and schedule an appointment.
