General and Medical Boarding
Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital’s Boarding Facility will be reopened for the holidays!
As 2020 is winding down, none of us have had much opportunity to spend with our loved ones. To make this holiday season a little easier to navigate and give your beloved pets a safe home while you travel to your human family, Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital is reopening its Boarding Facility from November 2020 to January 2021.
Opening: Tuesday November 10th from 8am
Closing: Wednesday January 20th until 8pm
We know the decision to board your pet is not to be taken lightly. It’s difficult to think of your pet out of his or her home environment while you are away. Our goal at Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital is to minimize your pet’s stress with attention, kindness, and exercise. All our guests are cared for by compassionate, well-trained, and experienced staff.
One of the many benefits of boarding your pet at our veterinary facility is that a veterinarian is available on the premises 24 hours a day should your pet need assistance for any reason. Best of all, your pet will be treated by the doctors and staff that you trust most. At BD&C we offer:
Each pet staying with us must be current on the following vaccines:
- Dogs Annual Rabies, Canine Influenza, Canine Distemper/Parvo Combination & Bordatella
- Cats Feline Distemper Combination and Rabies
All animals must have been examined by one of our staff veterinarians within the past year of their boarding stay.
Should any pet become ill, their condition will be assessed, the owner will be contacted if at all possible, and they will be treated accordingly at the owner’s expense.
We will not accept medications that are not in their original prescription bottles for our kennel patients. State regulations require that all medications be in their original containers with the original labeling.
Check-In and Check-Out Procedures
Our check-in and check-out procedures ensure an easy, hassle-free transition for and your pet:
- All pets will be checked in by one of our animal care attendants. A boarding health examination will be performed to ensure all pets staying at BD&C are healthy and free of disease and external parasites. There is no charge for this examination if performed by the animal care attendant. If your pet has not been seen here before or has not been seen within the last year by one of our Veterinarians, a pre-board health exam by a Berkeley Dog & Cat Veterinarian is required with an additional cost. These exams help protect all pets in the facility from communicable diseases.
- Boarding is charged per night with a one night minimum.
- Pick up and drop off times are from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. We will be unable to accommodate outside of these hours.
