When your pet arrives for boarding, he or she will receive a brief assessment by one of our boarding attendants. The attendant will notify the doctor on duty if anything out of the ordinary (skin issues, eye problems, etc.) is noted on the assessment and a team member may reach out to you for further treatment if you grant permission. Additionally, the attendant will check for fleas and ticks, and, if any are found, the attendant will treat your pet at the owner’s expense. We require all boarding pets to be current on their vaccinations either as done at Mercy or by a previous veterinarian. If your pet is not up to date on their vaccinations, a physical exam will be performed and all necessary vaccines will be administered by a Mercy doctor. This is done for the safety and well being of all the pets at our facility.
