Boarding Policy Form

Please fill out this form as completely and accurately as possible so we can get to know you and your pet(s) before your visit. If this is an emergency, or if your pet needs urgent care, please call us at 803-794-6550 for a faster response.

Please ensure that your designated agent is aware that you have given their name and is willing and able to make decisions regarding the care and well-being of your pet.

Any pet not claimed within 10 days of the scheduled pick-up date, without new provisions being made, will be considered abandoned. This pet becomes property of Van Crest and will be handled according to our best judgment.

1. All pets boarding must be current on vaccinations. Written proof of vaccinations or verification with the pet’s veterinarian must be provided before boarding the pet(s). NO EXCEPTIONS!

2. If parasites are found on the pet during the stay, they will be treated as VCAH determines. These costs will be added to your bill.

3. Not only may your pet pick up hospital odors while here but even the neatest of pets may get messy while boarding. For this reason, we recommend a bath the morning of discharge. Prices are determined by the size of your pet.

Pick up is after 3:00PM

4. Any medications or special requests regarding your pet will add an additional $4.40 to your daily fee. If you choose to bring toys, food, etc, with your pet, we ask that food be prepackaged in zip-lock bags, one per meal and that the other items are marked with the pet’s name. CERTAIN TREATS AND TOYS CAN NOT BE GIVEN DUE TO THE POTENTIAL CHOKING HAZARD.

Please be sure to include name, dosage amounts, instructions, and the time it was last given.

5. Pets staying longer than 7 days will need to prepay. Boarding fees must be paid in full on the day of pick-up. New clients boarding pets are required to pay a deposit of one-half of the entire cost. NOTE: ALL CHARGES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

6. All pets are monitored closely by our staff during their stay. If any medical problem is observed or develops, please let us know how you would like us to treat your pet by checking one of the following:

Note: If we are unable to contact you, we have the authority to proceed with any veterinary services deemed necessary at the owner’s expense.

7. I understand that the hospital is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items left with the pet, including collars and leashes.
