Each patient in our boarding facility is treated as if they were our own, and we take every precaution when it comes to their health and safety. If anything happens to your pet while boarding we will call the emergency contact provided. If a medical emergency situation arises, we will begin treatment immediately if an owner has given us written approval on our boarding agreement. If a situation arises that is a concern, but not considered an emergency by the doctor we will then contact the owner before any treatment.
We are confident that your pet will be comfortable during his/her stay with us. Katie and her team of TLC specialists will take extra special care of your family friend.
Cats must be up-to-date on the feline distemper and rabies vaccines, be free from parasites, have a negative FELV test, and have a negative fecal test within 6 months of boarding.

Boarding for the day
You may bring your own food, bedding, and dishes for your pet if you wish, but we provide them as well. All bedding must also be machine washable.
The bathing services include blow dry and brush out. Dematting and shaving services are also available. Fees for these services are based upon the severity of matting, size of the animal, and patient's temperament.
Dogs must be fully vaccinated and current with all boarding requirements. They must have a properly fitted and safe collar or harness with a strong leash that passes the inspection by March Animal Hospital of Arlington Heights, IL.
This is to make sure that it's safe for dog walking. If your leash or collar does not pass our inspection, they will be walked using our equipment. All dogs must wear a collar with identification tags (name, license, and contact numbers). They must also be friendly with unfamiliar people.
In the best interest of both your dog and March Animal Hospital, Dog walks will not occur if the temperature is below 25F or above 90F, if there are high winds, or if there is heavy rain or snow that prevents normal walking conditions. In the event of inclement weather, no charges will be applied for dog walking. If a situation arises at March Animal Hospital preventing the dog walk to occur as scheduled, no charges will be applied for the dog walking.
