Please provide us with proof of vaccinations or schedule an appointment with our veterinarian in advance of your visit. Your pet will be isolated until all vaccine and health requirements are met.

All pets dropped off with expired vaccines will be required to visit with the BloomingPaws veterinarian. It is important for pet parents to meet our veterinarian. It is very common to find problems or potential problems in apparently healthy pets, such as ear infections, bad teeth, gum disease, arthritis or parasites. Directly educating you about your pet’s health is the best way to achieve our goal of creating joy in the lives of pets and their families.

Any pets that display communicable illnesses or parasites (i.e. coughing, sneezing, eye discharge, diarrhea, fleas or ticks) will be isolated from all other pets. All pet parents will be contacted in the event their pet is isolated. Our veterinarian will examine the pet to recommend the best course of action.

Special handling fees may apply if your pet needs to remain isolated.
