Pet Boarding at Southside Animal Clinic

When your pet boards at Southside Animal Clinic Play & Stay Resort, they are in good hands! We offer monitored play time in a large outdoor play area, water play, and toys to ensure your pets comfort! If you miss your pet while you are away, we are happy to send you periodic photos of their stay via text message! In order for your pet to stay with us, please keep in mind the following requirements:

  1.  All animals must be current on all core vaccinations and internal/external parasite preventative.
  2. All animals must be free of external parasites (ex. ticks, fleas, etc.) or they will be treated at owner’s expense.
  3. All animals over 8 months of age must be spayed or neutered.
  4. Unaltered pets under the age of 8 months will be monitored closely for behavior problems and if noted will be dismissed until altered and behavior issues are resolved.
  5. Female pets in heat are not permitted to board. If pet goes into heat while boarding an additional fee will be applied at 50% increase of normal daily rate.
  6. In the event of an emergency, Southside Animal Clinic will administer emergency life saving care. The doctor on staff will make every effort to contact you to discuss further treatment options. If you are unable to be contacted, the doctor will provide care in the best interest of your pet.
  7. If a tranquilizer is necessary for treatment or handling, Southside Animal Clinic will administer such medication.
  8. Pets may be picked up after 9am and before 5pm unless specifically arranged otherwise.
  9. Southside Animal Clinic is not responsible for the damage or loss of your pets belongings.
  10. Only pets from the same immediate family may board in the same suite. If behavior results in shared suites being separated, full charges will apply.
  11. Southside Animal Clinic Play & Stay Resort uses 8 foot fences to contain our animals. If your pet can jump or climb 8 feet vertically, Southside Animal Clinic cannot guarantee our ability to contain said pet.
