Vaccination requirements

If your pet has not received all required vaccinations, they will need to be updated prior to boarding. Some vaccines require multiple doses to provide immunity. Protective immunity typically occurs 2 weeks after the last vaccination is given. For the safety of your pet, as well as the other pets boarding at our facility, we require vaccinations be given with adequate time for your pet to develop protective immunity. Please contact Arrowhead Veterinary Clinic for further information regarding timing and required vaccinations.

Proof of vaccination from a licensed veterinarian is required.

On admission to our boarding facility, your pet will receive a dose of Capstar to kill any adult fleas that may be present. Your pet will receive an additional dose at discharge from our boarding facility. This helps to keep our boarding facility a flea-free environment as well as your pet flea-free. Capstar is safe to give with other forms of flea prevention.

If your pet is sick due to a potentially contagious disease (coughing, vomiting/diarrhea, not eating), he/she will not be allowed to board.

Our pre-admission boarding release form is available under the forms tab. Please review this form and fill out prior to admission to our boarding facility.
