It's vacation time, so what are you going to do with your 4-legged family member while you are away?
At Bulverde Animal Hospital, we offer safe, clean and secure boarding for both dogs and cats. Your dog will be walked twice daily in our fenced-in area. If your dog stays more than one night, your pet will receive a complimentary bath. We feed Purina EN, which is very easy on your pet's digestive system. However, you are more than welcome to bring food, treats, bones and toys for your pet. Some beds and blankets are welcome, but since pets often soil beds, they may be removed and washed.
Boarding reservations should be made prior to drop-off to ensure a spot for your pet. Your pet must be current on all vaccinations. For dogs, this includes Rabies, DHPP, Canine Flu, Bivalent, and Bordetella within the last year. For cats, this includes Rabies and FVRCP within the last year. The receptionist will ask you to complete a boarding form, which will require an emergency number.
As of November 1, 2017, we require all boarding dogs to be vaccinated for the canine flu. The initial vaccination requires two doses, given 2 to 4 weeks apart. When making boarding reservations, please make plans to do the initial flu vaccine 2 weeks prior to your boarding reservation. This way, we are able to do the final vaccination when you drop off for boarding. Thereafter, an annual booster is recommended for continued protection. It is important for your pet to have an exam prior to each vaccine.
