What types of parasite prevention does your hospital offer?

We offer a variety of products from which you can choose:

Sentinel: Tablet that offers 30-day protection from heartworms, whipworms, hookworms, and roundworms. This product also prevents flea infestations by acting as a flea “birth control.” It prevents flea eggs, larvae, and pupae from developing – eliminating 95% of any flea problem. This product must be administered with a meal and is available for dogs weighing over 2 pounds.

Simparica Trio: A monthly tablet that prevents heartworms, fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites.

What are your boarding rates?
  • Cat Condo – $19.45
  • Small Cage – $22.73
  • Large Cage – $31.67
  • Indoor Run – $36.78
  • Suite – $42.60
Do I need to bring anything with me when boarding my pet(s)?

The only belonging we request that you bring is any medication that your animal is currently taking. We can provide bedding, food, and any other necessary supplies. You are more than welcome to bring your own food (to avoid any GI upset), toys, or bedding!

What vaccines does my pet need to be current on for boarding?

For dogs: Rabies, DAPP, and Bordetella vaccines are required to board for any length of time. We require that your pet have a current fecal parasite analysis on file. Lastly, we require documentation that your pet is current on heartworm and flea preventatives. If vaccines were administered elsewhere, it is your responsibility to provide documentation showing when/where the vaccines were given.

For cats: We require a current Rabies and FVRCP vaccination in order to board at our facility.

Does anyone stay overnight with the boarding animals?

Staff members are with the boarding animals from 7 AM to 6 PM. At all other times, the boarding facilities are closely monitored electronically for temperature conditions and safety.

What does a bath include?

A technician will perform an ear cleaning, nail trim, and bath. Any dog being dropped off for a bath must be dropped off between 7:30 am and 8:00 am. They will be ready for pickup in the early afternoon. Your pet must be current on Rabies, DAPP, and Bordetella vaccines and must also have a recent negative fecal parasite analysis on file. If vaccines were administered elsewhere, please bring documentation showing when/where the vaccines were given.

Do you provide county licenses?

We are able to offer Rabies licenses for Pasco County. We can only issue licenses for vaccinations administered in our hospital by one of our veterinarians.

Current prices for county licenses:
Pasco Intact Canine: $35.00 (1-year) / $100.00 (3-year)
Pasco Spayed/Neutered Canine: $10.00 (1-year) / $27.00 (3-year)

Do you offer animals for adoption?

We do not regularly offer animals for adoption. Occasionally, we receive animals from the community that are in need of forever homes. With the help of our Rainbow Fund, we are able to provide these animals with the care they need and adopt them out to our wonderful clients!

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay and Pasco County Animal Services have plenty of animals in need of forever homes!
