Boarding Policies

Vaccination Requirements
Boarding cats must provide proof of an FVRCP (distemper/upper respiratory) vaccine given within the last 36 months. A comprehensive physical examination is required prior to updating this vaccination.

Physical Examination Requirements
Cats must have a physical exam with one of our veterinarians prior to boarding.

 Cat's Age  Examination
 Under 10 Years Old  Within the last 12 months
 10-14 Years Old  Within the last 6 months
 15+ Years Old  Within the last 30 days
 Diabetic Cats  Each time they board

Cats with known significant medical issues may require a physical examination prior to boarding.

Health Requirements For the Safety Of Your Cats And Others
All boarding cats receive a pre-boarding check by our technician to assure there are no fleas or obvious signs of illness (there is no charge for the pre-boarding check).

Flea Control
If your cat arrives with evidence of fleas, he/she will receive a dose of Revolution (effective for 3-4 weeks). Be sure to indicate on your boarding check-in form if you have recently applied Advantage, Frontline, Revolution, or any flea product.

Medications
We will gladly administer medications if your cat needs them while boarding. Cats on medications not dispensed by Cats Exclusive Veterinary Center may require an examination prior to boarding. Medications must be in their original containers.

Food Options / Special Diets
The following foods (both canned and dry) are available in our boarding facilities. If you have a preference please be sure to indicate that on your boarding check-in form. To avoid gastrointestinal irritation, we recommend that you bring your cat’s regular food from home.

Dave's Pet Food Purina ProPlan Science Diet
Tuna Entree (canned)
Turkey Formula (canned)
Turkey & Salmon Dinner (canned)
Chicken & Rice (canned) Adult (dry)

If your cat requires a special diet not available in our boarding facility you must provide the food at check-in. If you want to purchase it in our retail store please call ahead to make sure we have the food in stock. We will send home any extras at checkout.

Personal Belongings
Please be sure to clearly label your carrier and any personal items you leave with your cat. While we understand your desire for your cat to have items from home, please be aware these occasionally get lost, especially if laundry is required. We cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged items. We encourage you to leave things of high sentimental or monetary value at home.

Visitation
If you would like to visit your cat while they are here boarding our visiting hours are Monday-Saturday between 10:00 am-12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Please call ahead to make an appointment. Please limit visits to 15 minutes.

If your cat develops a problem of medical concern while boarding
We assume one reason you chose to board your cat with us is the additional safety we provide by having trained professionals immediately available to evaluate your cat’s health status if necessary. Cats differ so much in their responses to boarding. Most are very comfortable here and take it in stride without a concern. Occasionally cats manifest an illness while boarding. If this happens, a staff veterinarian will examine your cat and contact you and/or your emergency contact with our recommendations. Our policy is to examine cats that manifest obvious signs of illness or have not eaten for 36-48 hours. (Some cats may have a decrease in appetite while they adjust to the new environment, but usually this lasts less than 48 hours). If we are unable to reach you, we will hospitalize your cat and extend appropriate and reasonable medical/surgical treatment. You would be responsible for the cost of those services.

Cancellation / Reservation Policy
Townhouses require a two night minimum stay. If you are a first-time boarder, a 100% deposit is required at check-in. No deposit is required for repeat boarders. If you need to cancel your reservation, we would appreciate as much advance notice as possible. Cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice from scheduled boarding date may incure cancellation fee.
