During holidays and events, SportsVet requires a credit card number to hold your reservation. Your card will be charged a set rate per reserved day if you cancel less than 48 hours in advance. Please call for charges.

Drop-off / Pick-up

To allow our housekeeping staff ample time to properly sanitize and prepare each room for arrivals, standard check-in time begins at 12:00 pm. (SportsVet will make efforts to accommodate early
check-ins as needed, but it cannot be guaranteed.) Check-out is before 11:00 am each day. Any pet picked up after 11:00 am will be charged for another night.

Saturday: Pick up by 11:00 am / Drop off by noon.

Sunday: Pick up between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

Please allow at least 15 minutes for check-in to fill out a detailed admission form at each drop-off. New Clients will be required to complete an Overnight Guest Profile Form at their first stay.

If anyone other than the owner will be picking up your pet, please alert SportsVet prior to pick-up and make sure they can provide a valid photo ID.

Due to safety and sanitary limitations, we cannot accept any personal belongings (i.e. beds, blankets, etc.). SportsVet will provide all the necessary bedding to keep your pet comfortable.

Rawhides, bully sticks, and other consumable bones are not permitted as they pose a choking hazard.

All canine guests are served Purina EN to decrease GI problems your pet may have while boarding. If you prefer to bring food from home, please prepare each meal in the appropriate serving size in separate Ziploc bags, and write your last name on the labeling section. We cannot accept large bags or containers of food.

SportsVet will provide a qualified staff member to administer oral and/or topical medications for an additional fee. Guests requiring specialized care are handled on a case-by-case basis and should be planned prior to drop-off. All medications must be provided by the owner and clearly labeled with written instructions, the pet’s name, type of medication, reason for medication, dosage, and administration schedule. Please call for fee prices.

Testimonials

Feedback from our clients

  • "SportsVet Animal Medical Center was the best vet I have ever had. I live in Minneapolis now and not only are all of the vets very expensive, they do not really seem to care in the same way Dr. Jacobs did."
  • "Dr. Jacobs and his staff are AMAZING. Every time I called, which was often (multiple times a week), they were happy to speak with me. They even sent me video of her during her underwater treadmill therapy. 4.5 years later, while some of her other joints struggle, her knee is perfect."
  • "Dixie had her TPLO surgery on Jan. 10th and went for her first water therapy yesterday. She is doing great. Getting stronger and using her leg more everyday. Everyone at SportsVet is soooo supportive and caring. Thank you again so much!!!!"
  • "I’ve never seen a vet be so caring and compassionate to not only the animals, but the animals owners as well. We think so highly of Dr. Jacobs and his staff that we travel and hour and a half for all our vet needs."
