Preventative Healthcare Requirements

BVH Boarding Policy
Every patient coming in to stay with us must be up to date on the following;

All required vaccinations must be up to date. You must provide proof of vaccination history if not provided by us. If you do not have written documentation, we will call your current veterinary facility to get records. Our requirements are as follows:

Dogs – Rabies vaccine, Distemper combination, Kennel cough (bordetella vaccine) {Lyme vaccine recommended but not required.}

Cats – Rabies vaccine, FVRCP (upper respiratory) {Feline leukemia vaccine recommended but not required.}

ALL PETS: Every boarding pet must have a Negative Fecal Test within 12 month of boarding.
Every boarding pet must be up to date on monthly Flea/Tick Prevention.
Every boarding pet must be up to date on monthly Heartworm/Parasite Prevention.

If a fecal is not up to date at the time of arrival, BVH staff will collect a fecal sample while your pet is here with us and you will be charged accordingly.

Vaccines: If any vaccinations are past due, your pet(s) must be vaccinated before boarding for his/her protection, as well as the protection of other pets boarding. If vaccines are not up to date upon arrival, we will administer before placed in boarding and charges will be added to your bill.

Flea Prevention: All pets must be on a monthly flea preventative in order to board. If not, your pet will be given a form of flea prevention upon arrival and will be added to your bill.

Parasite Prevention: All pets must be free from external (fleas/ticks) and internal parasites (hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, etc). If internal or external parasites are found, our doctor(s) will treat your pet at their discretion and the cost of treatment will be added to your bill.

Please know that these policies have been put in place to protect ALL pets staying in our facility.

Why We Want a Poop Sample
We recommend “fecals” because they are an important part of your pet’s annual exam. Fecals allow veterinarians to check your pet for intestinal parasites. Intestinal parasites are a major cause of infection in pets and also a concern for people. According to Kansas State, 34% of dogs in the United States have some kind of intestinal parasite, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that 14% of people in the U.S. have been exposed to the roundworm. As a result of toxocara infections, approximately 700 people lose vision every year. Fecals are an important tool to ensure that your pet and your household are not infected and exposed to intestinal parasites, respectively.

What do fecals detect?
Fecals enable veterinarians to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, coccidia and giardia. Since intestinal parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are usually hidden from view. Unlike external parasites like fleas and ticks, most intestinal parasites are never seen. The only way to detect the presence of intestinal parasites and identify them is by doing a fecal. Since worm eggs, larvae and protozoan cysts are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye, a fecal exam is done with a microscope.
