Boarding, Bathing and Grooming Requirements

 Boarding and Bathing Requirements

We require that our patients have vaccinations and fecal exams to board or have bathing or grooming services performed at Bluegrass Animal Hospital. Please bring any vaccination or medical history performed by another veterinary facility if your pet is being boarded, bathed or groomed at our facility.

For the safety of all of our patients, all boarding pets must be current on the following:

  • Biannual wellness exam
  • Appropriate vaccinations
  1. Canines: Distemper, Rabies, Bordetella, and Influenza
  2. Felines: FVRCP and Rabies
  • Intestinal parasite check every 6 months

If your pet is not a veterinary patient with us (i.e. gets vaccinations done elsewhere), a biannual wellness exam by one of our veterinarians will be required as well as proof of appropriate vaccinations and a negative intestinal parasite check within the last 6 months. We also request that any geriatric patients or patients with ongoing health issues have their medical notes and detailed history on file.

If your pet is behind on their vaccinations, we will be happy to get them up to date!

Sign up using the form or call 865-694-8387 to make your appointment.
