At Kitsap Veterinary Hospital we will do our very best to make your pet's stay with us a happy and comfortable experience. We will take care of your pet and their needs as if they were our own. Kitsap Veterinary Hospital staffers are highly experienced and trained to care for your pet and to report any problems to the attending doctors. This is a plus of our hospital, Kitsap Veterinary Hospital, compared to an everyday kennel.
Even with the best care, boarding can be stressful because your pet is in a new environment and its routines and habits are interrupted. Stress is minimized at Kitsap Veterinary Hospital by expert staff, attentiveness and proper handling, and strict cleanliness. Additionally, all boarding pets are current on required vaccinations, protecting your pet from sick pets. Yet it is still possible for problems to occur despite all precautions we take.
If any problem such as decreased appetite, loose stool or vomiting should occur, it will be detected by our experienced caregivers. Additionally, at Kitsap Veterinary Hospital a doctor is nearby to handle small problems before they turn into large ones. If problems develop and are persistent, our kennel assistants may ask for a doctor to examine your pet at the cost of a physical exam. If the doctor feels that treatment is necessary, you will be contacted by phone and any additional treatments will first be authorized. If we are unable to contact you and the doctor feels there are serious problems, your pet will be treated and normal fees will be charged. It is very important that you leave a contact number so we can reach you in an emergency or to pre-approve any potential treatments.
We want to make sure that your pet receives their proper food and medications while boarding with us. Please bring all medications and special foods they are currently taking. Please print and fill out this form and bring it with you when you bring your pet for a boarding visit: KVH Boarding Form
When your pet is boarded for 7 nights, they will receive a bath and nail trim at no additional cost. This service is performed the day before they leave.
Baths and nail trims are also available for pets staying less than 7 nights, at an additional cost.
All boarders must have a current Wellness Exam with our doctors within the last year. We also need to have proof of all current vaccines including bordetella and a current fecal exam.
