Boarding

Ease your concerns about leaving your pet behind while you’re away: Let our qualified staff take care of him or her. We will provide your dog or cat with a safe, comfortable, “home away from home” atmosphere. We are happy to accommodate any special care or needs your pet might have. Just let us know when you make the reservation.

We provide amenities such as clean bedding and food and water bowls, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. Toys and other personal items that are washable are welcome. We will administer any needed medication and follow your specified feeding regimen. (Alternately, we can provide a high-quality diet and treats for no extra charge, although eating their own food tends to agree better with most boarded pets.) We can also provide grooming services before you pick up your pet.

Veterinary technicians regularly check on the pets, and our kennel staff monitor the boarding area. You have the added benefit of knowing that one of our clinicians will promptly begin treatment if your pet gets sick during his or her stay. In addition, we can arrange for one of our veterinary team members to provide overnight monitoring for senior pets or those with certain health issues.

To keep all our patients as healthy as possible, we require pets that are boarding with us to have current rabies and distemper vaccinations, along with other species-specific vaccinations. We also require that most vaccinations be given at least two weeks before boarding. Please call us for more information.

Boarding Requirements

Vaccination History

Vaccinations are necessary for the protection of your pet as well as other boarders. We require proof of current vaccinations prior to boarding. In the event vaccinations cannot be verified, tour pet will be vaccinated under the supervision of a staff veterinarian and the appropriate charges will be added to the invoice. If your pet has been vaccinated by another veterinarian, it is the owner’s responsibility to provide written documentation of such.

Fleas and Ticks

Parasite control is very important in reducing the spread of insects, disease, and other health issues. We recommend that you consistently treat your pet for fleas and ticks. If fleas or ticks are found on your pet while boarding, we will initiate treatment.

Medications and Food

If your pet needs medications during its stay, we can administer appropriate medications as specified on the Special Instructions form. You are responsible for providing all medications. We provided complimentary food for your pet during boarding. You may specify special dietary instructions during your pet’s stay. Please complete the Special Instructions form detailing any required dietary needs. You are responsible for providing all special diets requested. If you do not provide the special diet at checkin, your pet will not be fed a special diet.

Personal Belongings

Midway Veterinary Hospital cannot be held liable for lost or damaged items (such as toys, blankets, etc.). We provide sufficient bedding and make every effort to monitor personal belongings, but use during your pet’s stay may lead to loss or damage or personal belongings. Please leave any item you consider valuable at home.

Veterinary Care

You may request examinations or treatments during your pet;s stay. Please complete the Special Instructions form detailing any examination or treatment required. Any observed symptoms or conditions during boarding will be reported to our medical staff for review. If we determine that treatment is necessary and consider this condition to be life threatening, we will initiate treatment without notice. Please indicate how you would like us to handle any non-life threatening, but necessary treatments on the Boarding Checkin Form.
