Boarding

Along with the dog runs and cat condos, we have an entire ward just to house your exotic pets (birds, reptiles, small mammals and ferrets).For the safety of your pet and our staff, the following vaccinations, procedures and tests must be current for pets to stay with us at Hartwood. You will also need to have the Boarding Release Form completed and on file.

ALL pets staying within Hartwood Animal Hospital must be free of external and internal parasites. Any pets found to have parasites will be immediately treated with an anti-parasitic medication at additional expense to the owner.
