​Cat Boarding Policies for Ruxton Animal Hospital

  • We strive to make your cat's stay with us as comfortable and stress - free as possible and we give individual attention to each of our guests. We have separate dog and cat facilities and spacious cat condos for your furry friend.

  • You may bring toys and treats for your cot, but we discourage items such as string toys, cat beds, and towels. We cannot be responsible for any personal items left with your cat. Please leave your cat carrier with us - it will be properly labeled and available when you pick up your pet.

  • You may choose to bring your cat's regular diet or you may choose to use the hospital provided diet. We normally feed Hill's Feline I/D dry food once daily. Twice daily feedings are available upon request for no additional charge.

  • To ensure the health and safety of your cat, we require that all cats in the boarding area be up to date on the following vaccinations and be free of infectious diseases and parasites. 


FVRCP (Feline Distemper)

  • A physical exam is required to receive vaccinations. The exam cost is $56. If we have examined your pet 

within the last 6 months, a minor exam will be performed for $42. If medical problems are found and treated, the exam fee will be $56.


  • A negative fecal exam is required within the last 6 months. The fecal exam cost is $62.34. For indoor cats, a record of one negative Feline Leukemia / FIV test is adequate. Outdoor cats must have record of a negative test within the last 12 months to board.

  • If fleas, ticks, and / or ear mites are found on your cat upon admission to our facility, appropriate treatment will be performed, at your expense, to prevent the spread of these parasites to our other guests in the hospital.

  • Our staff is trained to administer any medications to your cat during their stay. Medications will be given as instructed for an additional daily fee of $6. Please fill out a supplemental Medication Form in its entirety, including names, doses, instructions, etc for each medication your pet is on. Should your cat exhibit decreased appetite during their stay, we may add a bland canned diet to their food to entice them to eat. Cost of cans is additional and will be applied to your account.

  • If your cat develops a medical problem while staying with us, we will attempt to reach you or the provided emergency contact. To ensure the safety of your pet, we will automatically perform a physical exam and provide the appropriate medical treatment supervision at your expense if we are unable to reach you.

  • We can perform services such as nail trims, dental cleanings and other surgical procedures while your cat is boarding with us. Please discuss specific requests with the receptionist and fill out appropriate consent forms when you drop off your cat for boarding.

  • Ruxton Animal Hospital does not offer or provide 24 hour supervision.
