Boarding at Pickens Animal Hospital: Medical Requirements Effective January 1, 2016

January 5, 2016 — News — Pickens Animal Hospital @ 12:41 am

At PAH, we take pride in providing clean and comfortable boarding facilities for your companion animal while you are away from home. Equally important is ensuring the health and safety of both the boarding pets and our staff members.

The following requirements were established for the protection of the health and safety of all pets in our facility and our pet care staff. Following these guidelines also minimizes the chance of your pet being exposed to serious, life threatening diseases while staying with us.

Boarding is available only for our client’s healthy pets. Any pets that are ill or ailing are considered hospitalization cases and are accepted only after consultation with and approval by one of our veterinarians.
