Indoor and Outdoor Facilities For Your Pet
Bel Air Veterinary Hospital offers indoor air conditioned and outdoor dog runs as well as a fenced in dog walking area. We offer quality care you can rely on. We understand your pets may require special treatments – please inform us of your pet’s special needs during their stay with us. Pets are fed twice daily and fresh water is available at all times. Additional feedings or special diets can be provided at owner’s request, for a small fee. All stainless steel bowls are disinfected between each use. Blankets and disposable litter pans are supplied, by the hospital, to all of our feline friends. For our canine visitors, blankets and rubber mats are provided for their comfort. For safety reasons, we ask that you do not bring any toys, as some canine toys are not easily able to be sanitized. We require all boarding pets to be current on vaccines and heartworm testing, please see below. Certificates or verification from the administering veterinarian of all vaccines and heartworm testing must be provided at the time of admittance, or vaccines will be updated at owner’s expense. Any pet found to have external parasites will be treated at the owner’s expense. Bathing services are available, for a fee, by request on the day of discharge. If your pet is scheduled to be bathed, please allow ample time for your pet to dry before pick up. Usually an afternoon pickup allows time for your pet to dry.
It is not uncommon for your pet to be tired after boarding. Some pets are much more active while boarding than at home. Our staff enjoys “talking with” and interacting with our boarding friends to make them feel as comfortable as possible during your absence.
Reservations are strongly recommended, as our facility fills up quickly, especially during holiday and summer time vacations. A deposit is required, when reservations are made, to save space for each pet. The deposit can be refunded as long as your reservation is canceled at least 24 hours in advance of your drop-off date. So be sure to call our office as soon as your family getaways are planned. Pets are admitted and discharged from boarding Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. When dropping off your pet, we ask that you provide a contact number where you can be reached in the event of an emergency. We will also ask for you to provide a name and phone number of someone, in case we are unable to reach you, who would be authorized to make medical decisions for your pet in the event of an emergency.
For optimal vaccine protection, your pet’s vaccines are required to be given at least 2-3 weeks prior to boarding or being brought in for a procedure.
