Your pet's home away from home.
Located in Athens, Good Hands Veterinary Hospital offers a separate pet boarding for cats and dogs so you can enjoy peace of mind while you're away.
At Good Hands Veterinary Hospital, we know the importance of finding the perfect boarding facility. We are dedicated to making your pet's vacation as comfortable and satisfying as possible and we promise to take care of your furry friend as if they were our own.
Our boarders enjoy these amenities during their stay:
- Clean, spacious cages and runs
- Canine guests are exercised three-times daily
- Advanced Fitness Healthy Advantage food to our guests, but we encourage clients to bring their own food if your furry friend has any dietary restrictions or is used to a specific diet.
- A comfortable atmosphere
- Fresh bedding and daily housekeeping.
- Individualized care
- Daily observations
- Veterinary medical care (if needed)
- We do NOT charge clients for walking, feeding, and medicating their pets.
To make your pet's stay as comfortable as possible, feel free to send them with their favorite treats, toys, or bedding.
Our Boarding Requirements
Our boarding requirement are as follows:
Canines are required to be up-to-date on Bordetella (Kennel Cough), DA2PPV (Distemper Parvo), and Rabies vaccinations.
Felines are required to be up-to-date on FDRCP (Distemper) and Rabies vaccinations.
*This includes patients who are admitted for medical treatment and services.*
Noon Checkout Policy
Our boarding days roll over at noon each day, similar to a hotel. The day of check in counts as the first day of boarding; an additional night is charged each following day at 12pm. In simpler terms, it does not matter what time you drop off but it does matter what time you pick up.
We offer Sunday pickup from 6:00pm to 6:30pm. All pets will have been walked and fed by this point in the day. If you miss this pickup window, there will be no additional charge if you pick up by 12 on Monday.
This window is a convenience for our clients. We do not have normal business hours on Sunday.
We do require a $25.00 deposit for each pet during holiday boarding dates. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable to other holiday or normal boarding reservations. Please feel free to give us a call with any questions.
Please fax your pet's medical records to us at (706) 613-1844 or email goodhandsVH@yourvetdoc.com prior to their stay.
