The Animal Hospital of Signal Mountain provides a home away from home for your furry family member. We will do our very best to make your pet's stay with us a happy and comfortable experience. We will take care of your pet and their needs as if they were our own. With overnight boarding and day boarding options, the Animal Hospital of Signal Mountain boarding experience can cater to all of your scheduling needs. AHSM staffers are highly experienced and trained to care for your pet and to report any problems to the attending doctors. This peace of mind is a defining feature of our hospital, the Animal Hospital of Signal Mountain, compared to an everyday day kennel. Even with the best care, boarding can be stressful because your pet is in a new environment and its routines and habits are interrupted. Stress is minimized at AHSM by expert staff, attentiveness and proper handling, and strict cleanliness. Additionally, all boarding pets are require to be current on all vaccinations, protecting your pet from sick pets. Yet, it is still possible for problems to occur despite all precautions we take. If any problem such as decreased appetite, loose stool, or vomiting should occur, it will be detected by our experienced caregivers.
Additionally, at the Animal Hospital of Signal Mountain, a doctor is nearby to handle small problems before they turn into large ones. If problems develop, our kennel assistants may ask for a doctor to examine your pet at the cost of a physical exam. If the doctor feels that treatment is necessary, you will be contacted by phone and any additional treatments will first be authorized. If we are unable to contact you and the doctor feels there are serious problems, you pet will be treated and normal fees will be charged. It is very important that you leave a contact number so we may reach you in an emergency and to pre-approve any potential treatments. We want to make sure that your pet receives their proper food and medications while boarding with us. Please bring all medications and special foods they are currently taking. Please bring all medications in the original medication vials so they are clearly labeled. If your pet would like to use the clinic boarding supplies, the kennel offers Royal Canine food, MilkBone treats, beds, towels, and blankets to make your pet comfortable. Similarly, our grooming staff would be happy to bath and/or groom your pet upon request prior to pick-up.
