YVC Boarding Check-in and Consent


Please review our questions prior to your pet's stay with us and let us know of any questions or concerns. Expedite your check-in process by filling out the form here and emailing it to us by clicking "submit" below.

CLIENT INFORMATION UPDATE: You can update your contact information on the YVC Client Information form in this section of our website.

PATIENT INFORMATION UPDATE: If we have not seen your pet before you can provide the essential information on the YVC Patient Information form in this section of our website.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES: We can usually provide additional services while your pet is boarding with us. Options range from annual check-ups to nail trims and having anal sacs emptied, to exams for particular problems. In many cases surgery or dentistry can be scheduled during a boarding stay.

VACCINES: Dogs must be up-to-date on kennel cough, rabies and distemper-parvo vaccines. Cats must be up-to-date on distemper-upper respiratory vaccine and rabies vaccine. If your pet is due for a booster of any of these vaccines we can provide it at the time of admission for boarding.

LEASH WALKING: At YVC dogs are boarded in comfortable indoor runs and pens and walked outside on a leash. In order to board with us your dog must be well-socialized and comfortable with anyone walking him/her on a leash. If you are not completely confident that your dog will easily accept leash-walking then we recommend that you seek a boarding facility with indoor/outdoor runs.

DIET: We feed our boarded pets Science and Prescription Diets. Please feel free to bring your pet's usual food with you. NOTE: For safety reasons we will not feed raw diets to boarded pets.

TOYS AND BEDDING: Please bring any toys or bedding you would like your pet to have. If you do not bring bedding we will provide it. NOTE: It has been our experience that some pets will treat their possessions badly while boarding (chewing them up, urinating and defecating on them) so we recommend that you do not bring something that you cannot easily replace.

MULTIPLE PETS IN ONE PEN OR RUN: It is also our experience that pets that have been lifelong best friends will occasionally become very agitated with each other if confined together while boarding. We seriously discourage you from requesting to have your pets boarded together. Also, boarding charges are per pet, not per run or pen, so there is no economic advantage to boarding your pets together.

24 HOUR CARE: Our doctors are available for problems with boarded pets - a great advantage of boarding with us. However, we are not staffed around-the-clock. If your pet is very ill and requires close monitoring or special nursing care then our safest option is not to board him/her, but to hospitalize him/her at one of the 24-our emergency hospitals in our area.


GENERAL: I understand that there are risks associated with boarding, including but not limited to: contagious diseases, stress-related illness or injury, and injury or loss due to escape attempts. i relieve YVC of all liability in the absence of gross negligence.

PAYMENT: I have received or waived an estimate for boarding and additional procedures and I understand that payment in full is expected prior to or at the time my pet is discharged to me. I accept full financial responsibility for any treatment needs that arise during my pet's stay, with the understanding that an estimate cannot be provided for emergencies or urgent care.

EMERGENCIES: I authorize emergency treatment of my pet and I accept full financial responsibility for this care. I have specified any details of this care, such as a do-not-resuscitate order.

STAFFING: YVC is open from 7:30 to 6:00 Monday to Friday and 8:00 to 12:00 Saturday. Boarding discharge on Sunday is at 4pm. Staffing of the hospital is from 7am to 6:30pm daily, there is no staff member routinely present at any other time. Care an treatment of boarded pets occurs on an as-needed basis to be determined by the doctors and staff.
