Pocatello Pet Lodge’s Healthy Pet Care Warranty offers you peace of mind while your pets visit our facility. Our standard practices are to keep everything clean, monitor dogs closely during play, pay close attention to feeding instructions, and do our very best to keep everyone happy and healthy. However, through the day-to-day operation of our boarding, daycare and grooming facility, pets may be exposed to contagious illness, or they may be subject to injury through routine play. Although no negligence by the staff of our facility would be involved under these circumstances, we realize that the pet owner has a reasonable right to not incur additional and unexpected expenses for an illness or injury that occurred while the care of their pet was entrusted to others. To address this, Pocatello Pet Lodge has established a Healthy Pet Care Warranty.
This program defines the level of financial liability we will assume for pets that become ill or are injured while visiting our facility. This warranty will generally cover the most common gastrointestinal, respiratory, dermatological and other illnesses and injuries that could occur – with the aim of offering you peace of mind while your pet stays with us. Enrollment in this warranty is mandatory.
