**In order to best serve our clients & patients in the hospital, we are not accepting boarding reservations until further notice-- effective July 2021.
If you have further questions or would like an update on this matter, please email us at [email protected]
Thank you for your patience & understanding! We hope to offer boarding services again in the future.
Boarding your beloved canine with Bay Animal Hospital:
Due to a high demand for our services, boarding is limited to current & active clients & patients of our hospital.
Our clients are always our first priority & this allows us more availability to meet your boarding needs.
What's provided at our home-away-from-home:
--Bedding & blankets.
--Food & water bowls.
--Veterinarian-approved play-time toys; safe for your pup!
--Though we recommend avoiding drastic diet changes by bringing your dog's usual diet for their stay, veterinary-grade canned & dry food can be provided at no extra charge if needed. (We carry digestive-sensitive diets to do our best to prevent gastrointestinal upset in your dog.)
--Veterinary-grade treats offered at no extra charge.
**Due to limited storage & Covid-19 safety, at this time we ask that you do not bring any personal items that your dog does not need during their stay with us. As always, we want them to be as comfortable as possible, so if you have questions or concerns regarding this, please don't hesitate to call our office to speak with a boarding staff member. 989-893-4549
Our cage options:
--Small: 3ft x 2ft x 3ft; 15lb dog (single dog) maximum; $27 (pictured left, top cages)
--Medium: 3ft x 3ft 3ft; 39lb dog (single dog) maximum; $29 (pictured left, bottom cages)
--Large: 6ft x 3ft x6ft (with open top); 150lb dog (single dog) maximum; $31 (pictured middle & right)
Cage & pricing notes:
- Cage prices are per 24 hour period;
(If your dog is in a small cage & arrives at 10am Monday, departs 10am Tuesday, the cost would be $27. If they depart 6pm that same day, the cost would be $13.50).
- If you are needing care for more than one dog, boarding them toegther, in the same cage may be in an option;
(The cage size, pet size, & number of pets in one cage must be approved by our boarding staff. If approved, our staff reserves the right to separate pets during their stay if we feel their safety is at risk. We do offer a price-break when sharing a cage, however if separated during their stay, prices will reflect changes).
- You are able to reserve a larger size cage than your dog's weight would place them in; feel free to reserve a large cage so your teacup chihuahua can have a little more room during his week-long stay!
Safety protocols & requirements to stay with us:
In order to ensure safety to the dogs in our care, our doctors have set protocols to help prevent the introduction or contraction of infections, parasites, or viruses in the environment. (If medical circumstances restrict your dog from any of our requirements, please let a boarding staff member know when confirming reservation details).
Prior to your reservation for your dog to stay with us, they must be current on the following:
--Must have had a stool sample testing with a negative result within the last year
--Must be current on flea/tick & heartworm/internal parasite prevention
Accepted products for flea/tick protection include but not limited to: Nexgard, Credelio, Frontline
Accepted products for heartworm/internal parasite prevention include but not limited to: Heartgard, Interceptor, Sentinel Spectrum
Accepted combination products include but not limited to: Revolution, Simparica Trio
If your canine companion is in need of prevention, this can be ordered from our online store, & shipped directly to your home. Most of the listed products can also be purchased from our office with a simple call-ahead.
If you have further questions about preventative products or requirements, please don't hesitate to call our office at 989-893-4549 or email us at [email protected] We would love to share our knowledge!
The BAH difference: Treat your pet to a stay with us!
--Monitoring by well-trained & experienced pet-care providers who have a true passion for pets!
--Climate controlled boarding area to make sure your pet is comfortable.
--If you would like to receive a text message with a picture of your baby daily, please check the box next to that option on your reservation form.
--A doctor and technician is on staff daily, making sure your dog is in good, visible health & comfortable while with us.
--Options to have additional services rendered while boarding with us can be taken care of as long as you schedule this at the time of your boarding reservation. These may include a toe nail trim, or anal glands expression, or surgical procedures such as a dental cleaning, or spay/neuter, etc.
--Playtime in fully a fenced-in yard (or inside if weather is poor) is frequent; your dog will not spend more than 2 hours in their cage at a time between the hours of 7:00 am & 8:30 pm.
- We recommend BOOKING AHEAD, as our beds fill up quickly! We do not currently have a cancellation fee in place, but do appreciate a call in advance if you no longer need our services.
- If you have concerns that your dog may become anxious or extremely fearful during their stay, we suggest checking the box on the reservation form, allowing us to treat minor issues. This will give us permission to provide low-dose anxiety medication, should they present severe stress or anxiety while you're away. (Examples of minor issues may include excessive panting or barking, persistent scratching at cage door, decline in appetite, vomiting, loose stools, etc.)
Thank you for placing your trust in Bay Animal Hospital.
