At Coastal Cat Clinic, we will do our very best to make your cat's stay with us a happy and comfortable experience. We will take care of your pet and their needs as if they were our own. Coastal Cat Clinic staffers are highly experienced and trained to care for your cat and to report any problems to the attending doctors. This is a plus of our hospital, Coastal Cat Clinic, compared to an everyday kennel.
Even with the best care, boarding can be stressful because your pet is in a new environment and their routines and habits are interrupted. Stress is minimized at Coastal Cat Clinic by expert staff, attentiveness and proper handling, and strict cleanliness. Additionally, all boarding cats are current on required vaccinations, protecting your cat from sick pets. Yet it is still possible for problems to occur despite all precautions we take.
If any problem such as decreased appetite, loose stool or vomiting should occur, it will be detected by our experienced caregivers. Additionally, at Coastal Cat Clinic a doctor is nearby to handle small problems before they turn into large ones. If problems develop and are persistent, our kennel assistants may ask for a doctor to examine your pet at the cost of a physical exam. If the doctor feels that treatment is necessary, you will be contacted by phone and any additional treatments will first be authorized. If we are unable to contact you and the doctor feels there are serious problems, your pet will be treated and normal fees will be charged. It is very important that you leave a contact number so we can reach you in an emergency or to pre-approve any potential treatments.
We want to make sure that your pet receives their proper food and medications while boarding with us. Please bring all medications they are currently taking along with their current diet (enough to last the entire time they are boarding). You do not need to bring litter unless your cat uses a special type of litter. Please print and fill out this form and bring it with you when you bring your pet for a boarding visit: Boarding Care Instructions. Please call or contact us today to learn more about our boarding services.
Please note – due to our hours we are NOT able to board newly diagnosed or uncontrolled diabetic patients as we do not have staff available to give insulin injections every 12 hours.
In order to board with us here at Coastal Cat Clinic your cat must meet the following requirements:
Has a current wellness exam (seen within the last 12 months for adult cats or last 6 months for senior cats) with one of the doctors at either Coastal Cat Clinic or Linda Mar Veterinary Hospital
Is up to date on the following required vaccines – FVRCP (upper respiratory vaccine) & Rabies (only exception to this is if at their last exam the veterinarian determined that patient is no longer required to be vaccinated)
Is current on flea treatment. If your pet is NOT currently on flea treatment we will apply a dose of Cheristin at the owner’s expense.
