Any cats restarting their vaccinations will need to wait for 14 days after their second vaccine before being able to be boarded. The full booking will be liable for payment if we have to refuse board due to vaccination’s not being up to date.
Pets should be up to date with Flea and Worm treatment. We reserve the right to refuse stay if your pet needs treatment. Treatment can be administered if your cat is due whilst staying with us, but should be provided by the owner. If your cat needs treatment during its stay we can provide this however this will need sourcing from your vet at a charge of £30 + cost of treatment.
If your pet requires medication, it is the owner's responsibility to supply enough medication for your pet's entire stay plus one week after in case of travel disruptions. If medication runs out during stay a £30 fee will be charged to source medication from your veterinary practice and the cost of medication will be the owners responsibility and will be added to the invoice.
In any event that any pet requires medical attention we will do our upmost to contact the owner or emergency contact to discuss prior to vet visit however, we reserve the right to make decisions based on your pet's condition and welfare especially in the event of an emergency.
