Vaccinations

All pets must be in good health and unexposed to any contagious or communicable illnesses within a 30 day period prior to check-in. Pet guests who have a medical condition or illness can be more appropriately cared for by boarding next door at VCA Westlake Village Animal Hospital, who has 24 hour veterinary nursing care.

Temperament Standards Guests must possess a temperament that allows staff members to be able to properly care for them. Allowances may be made for specific temperament issues, but pets cannot pose a danger to staff members.

Current vaccinations are required and mandated by Los Angeles County Animal Control. Written proof of current vaccinations is required on service date or at boarding check-in. If pets require vaccination updates, we prefer vaccination(s) be administered at least 7 days prior to your service date or boarding check-in date. Vaccinations can be administered at the adjacent VCA Westlake Village Animal Hospital. Please call VCA Westlake Village Animal Hospital at 805-497-4900 to make an appointment for vaccinations at least 7 days prior to your pet’s stay. Titers are accepted with proper documentation.
