For your convenience, we offer boarding and medical boarding services at Redding Veterinary Hospital. For many of our clients, boarding their pets at a veterinary hospital offers peace of mind, knowing that a medical professional is on staff to care for their animal if the need arises.
Boarding patients can be dropped off and picked up during hospital hours, from 8:00AM – 5:00PM Monday through Friday or 8:00AM-1:30PM Saturday. The hospital office is closed on Sundays.
For your convenience, please fill out a Boarding Check In Sheet and bring with you to the appointment.
We require all boarding animals to be current on core vaccinations (Kennel Cough, DHPP, and Rabies for dogs; FVRCP and Rabies for cats) and have a current negative fecal examination. Please call us at least one week ahead of time to schedule your pets’ boarding appointment. We can perform needed vaccinations or a fecal at least one week prior to boarding for your pet. We are also happy to honor vaccination status with a current copy of your pet’s medical records from your regular vet. Please ask us about boarding for your pocket pets!
We also offer physical examination, leash walking, and grooming services for our boarders for owner convenience. These services are offered on an appointment basis. All boarders receiving any type of physical exam, diagnostic, or surgical procedure MUST meet with a veterinarian and/or veterinary technician before the procedure is scheduled. Ask us about our medical boarding for animals with medications and chronic conditions.
If any boarder is found with parasites, they will be treated at the owner’s expense. If a boarder should become ill, he/she will be treated at the veterinarian’s discretion (if the owner cannot be reached at the emergency number).
Our compassionate staff members offer your pet excellent boarding care and personal attention and alert our doctors if any medical issues arise. We are happy to provide your pet with its own special diet and feeding regiment, but please leave any valuable toys, blankets, etc, at home.
