Dog Boarding

Pet Boarding FAQ’s

Must Meet All Vaccinations and Parasite Test Requirements. No Exceptions.

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

  • Canine: CIV Vaccine, DHPP, 6-Month Bordetella (Canine Cough), Rabies and a negative fecal test (annually)
  • Feline: FVRCP, 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 VCA Willow Creek Pet Center. Remember that vaccinations prevent disease.

Splish, Splash, We’ll Give Them A Bath

VCA Willow Creek Pet Center offers a complimentary bath to all boarding dogs after three nights stay. (Sorry, we are unable to offer this service to aggressive dogs).

We do our very best to keep your pet as clean as possible during his/her stay with us; however, potty accidents happen to even the best trained dogs. The change from the normal home routine and all the different sounds and smells of the boarding facility may cause even the best trained dog to have an occasional ‘mistake’. Our attentive staff keeps all kennels cleaned and disinfected almost as soon as a pet goes potty.

Everyone Loves A Clean, Fresh Blank-ee

Blankets are offered for your pet if requested. Your pet will receive a clean fresh blanket at least twice a day. We ask that you do not bring dog beds or blankets from home. Many times they become soiled and we are unable to return them to you clean.

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 Science Diet Sensitive stomach and skin. 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.

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 with one of the doctors at VCA Willow Creek Pet Center.
