Additional Terms of Boarding
* Revisions To Boarding
Northwest Animal Hospital will no longer be accepting any personal items such as toys, blankets, beds, etc. Due to the nature of housing animals, personal items are often inadvertently lost, discarded, or damaged and their return home is not guaranteed. Please do not leave any leashes or collars. During your pets stay only hospital issue and approved leashes will be used. As we do not have a secure exercise area outside, our patients are generally not taken for walks during their stay with us. If you have any concerns regarding this matter, please speak with a client service representative.
Aggressive Pet Boarding Protocol
For our purposes, we are defining “aggressive” as any patient that attempts to lunge and/or bite an individual or other
animal with the probable intention of doing harm. We would encourage all owners of aggressive pets to find an
alternative to boarding their pets in a boarding facility, such as leaving the pet at home with a caretaker or taking him or her with you. We understand that circumstances do not always allow for these solutions. In the event that any patient is deemed aggressive at the time of boarding admission or anytime thereafter, he or she will be categorized as an “aggressive pet”. The fee to board such pets is double that of our normal boarding fees per day. The nature of such pets will not allow us to extend grooming procedures to them, and we will not
guarantee the condition of these pets upon the owner’s return.
Our goal is to make your pet’s stay here as comfortable as possible, but taking an animal out of his home environment
and away from his daily routine and the people he knows is often stressful. Even the happiest pet can react negatively to
being boarded. They often act differently here than they do at home. For instance, a dog that is quiet as a mouse at
home might be very vocal here. They sometimes get so excited and distracted by the activity here that they do not eat or
drink as they normally do at home. Some boarders will even develop a problem while here, such as loose stools (stress
colitis), or if they are particularly vocal, a cough or laryngitis. Should your pet develop a problem while here, the doctors
will use their best judgment for the required treatment of your pet.
In the event that my pet should become sick while boarding, I give permission to the doctors at Northwest Animal
Hospital to treat my pet. I am the owner or authorized agent for the owner of the pet(s) previously described, and
accept full responsibility for all costs incurred. In the event that I do not return for my pet and ten (10) days have
expired since a certified letter was sent to my address notifying me to call for my animal, the animal may be
disposed of. This action will not, however, release me from all charges incurred, including legal fees
(approximately 40% of the total unpaid portion) resulting from non-payment of charges.
I have read and understand all of the above.
