After admission to the hospital boarding facility, all pets will receive a brief physical exam (at no charge) by the veterinary assistant. In cases of illness or injury, these problems will be brought to the attention of the doctor, who will examine your pet (at additional expense) and decide on a course of treatment. We will make an effort to contact you, but in rare circumstances, treatment may be necessary and instituted to stabilize or treat your pet even if you cannot be contacted.
