MEDICATIONS AND MEDICAL CARE
We will administer oral and topical medications as requested, as well as certain injections. Please check with us beforehand about our injection policy. There is a $3.50 charge for each administration of medication. Please bring all medications in the original container with accurate dosing carefully and clearly written out. Please ensure that there is enough medication for your pet’s entire stay, plus a few extra doses in case you are delayed in returning.
Should your pet require medical attention while staying with us, we will endeavor to get your pet to his or her own vet. If that does not work, we will take them to our vet, which is Pender Veterinary Centre in Fairfax or Artemis Emergency. Both facilities are staffed 24 hours-a-day so we can reach medical help anytime, day or night.
We require that you provide us with an additional number(s) where you can be reached should the need arise. We always ask for a land-line because cell phones do not always work as expected. We also always ask for e-mail addresses. We will attempt to contact you if your pet needs medical attention. We will leave messages for you. Yet, if the situation calls for immediate action, we will treat your pet like he or she is our own and get your pet to the vet right away. We try very hard to be very observant and tuned into all your pet’s needs and habits so we can monitor any changes that could require prompt attention.
