Boarding

Boarding Requirements:
Vaccines: We require that all cats boarding at Morrisville Cat Hospital be up-to-date on their Rabies and FVRCP (distemper) vaccinations. These vaccinations must be given 7 days prior to cat's boarding check-in date if vaccines are more than 60 days overdue.

Flea/Tick/Parasite: We require that all cats boarding at Morrisville Cat Hospital be free from fleas, ticks, and internal parasites. If they are observed at check-in or during your cat's stay with us, we will treat your cat with Capstar ($6).

Illness Policy:
If your cat becomes ill while boarding, we will immediately attempt to reach you at the emergency number(s) you listed. If we are unable to speak with your contact, we will leave a message. However, if we are unable to reach you, the veterinarian will perform whatever treatments deemed necessary, not to exceed your designated amount.

BoardingCommon Stress-Related Conditions Policy:
Being away from home can be stressful to many cats. Diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, anxiety and inappetence are all common stress-related conditions that will often present when cats are boarding. We monitor our patients very closely each day and will provide appropriate care if any of these conditions develop during their stay with us. Treatment costs may include the cost of possible medications and $8.50 per day to administer medication (if your cat is not already on medications).

Inappetence is the most common stress-related presentation. We will medicate your cat with a single dose of an appetite stimulant (Cyproheptadine), at no additional cost, to jump start his/her appetite. If your cat is still not eating after 36 hours with an appetite stimulant, we will try to contact you at your emergency contact. If we are unable to reach you, we will need to syringe feed your cat to prevent dehydration and liver disease from developing. Additional costs will apply for syringe feeding.

We appreciate your trust in us to care for your cat. We are confident that our approach to caring for boarding patients ensures your cat’s health and wellbeing.
