Boarding Admission Form

Requirements for Boarding:

  • Current on Annual Exam with Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic
  • Boarding Admission Exam at time of boarding
  • Vaccines for ferrets and other animals susceptible to distemper virus

 

Why does my pet need a Boarding Admission Exam if he is already up to date on his Annual Exam?

  • Our medical team has determined that the most cost effective method to ensure all guests are healthy is a thorough physical examination. Examination at the time of check in is the best way to protect all of our guests.
    • Some boarding facilities require an examination and certain medical tests sometime with the last 6 months to a year prior to boarding. Since medical condition can change rapidly, and tests for exotic pets can be unreliable, we feel the examination at the time of admittance is a better choice for the safety and health of all guests. If an abnormality is detected, we will contact you right away to discuss the best diagnostic or treatment options.
    • Pets who are due for an annual exam will receive their annual at the time of check in. Pets who have had an annual exam within the last year will receive a lower cost Boarding Admittance Examination at check in.
