Cahuenga Pet Hospital should be your first choice to take care of your dog or cat while you are away, especially if your pets have a medical conditions that require attention or medication. We take very seriously the trust you demonstrate in our veterinary hospital by leaving your pet in our care. And while there is “no place like home,” it is our sincere purpose to provide a safe, comfortable, and caring environment for your pet while in our care.
All of our clients should feel confident that our boarding procedures are of the highest quality and that your pet is attended to by our trained, experienced hospital staff and veterinarians.
Our boarding facility is climate-controlled with daily cleaning schedule, where your pets will be constantly under the care of a veterinarian supervised staff. Dogs are taken out for exercise 3 times a day and given plenty of time to fulfill their needs, while cats kept calm by being completely separated from dogs.
We feed our boarded guests with Science Diet, but if your pet is food sensitive we recommend that you bring your own pet’s food while boarding, and to make boarding experience for your pet less stressful any special toy will be appropriate. Also, if you wish to check on your pet we encourage you to call us, and our staff member will be happy to update you on your pet condition.
For the best chance to accommodate your pet please make your reservations in advance, especially during holiday seasons. There may be some additional services that we can provide for your pet. Please ask our staff member about these extras and associated costs.
Pet Boarding Requirements
In order to board your pet and for the protection of our other guests, we will need to review your pet’s vaccination history in advance to make sure that all vaccines are up-to-date prior to boarding the following vaccines should be current:
- For dogs: Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella, and Rabies
- For cats: FVRCP, FeLV, and Rabies.
In addition, we require that your pet should be examined by our veterinarian within 12 months time of the boarding, if your pet is less than 7 years of age or within 6 months time of the boarding if your pet is 7 years of age or greater. This precaution is to ensure that your pet doesn’t have any medical condition that will prevent your pet from boarding. All pets must be flea-free to stay in our facility.
Use of Boarding Time
Most of our clients use their pet’s boarding time to catch up on overdue or needed services such as Comprehensive Physical Examination, Dental Cleaning, or Elective Surgery.
If you wish to use your pet’s boarding time for this purpose, inform our staff member at the time of boarding reservation. To reserve a space for your pet, please call us in advance, especially during holidays.
