What Makes Our Pet Boarding Different?

What Makes Our Pet Boarding Different?

At our animal hospital, your pet is treated like the family member they are. We offer cat and dog boarding that goes far beyond time in a kennel. When your pet stays with us, they’ll enjoy:

Lots of time outside for dogs

Our dog boarding guests enjoy at least 3 extended outdoor times each day for some play, exercise, and potty breaks.

Group play with day camp dogs or individual play

If your dog is boarding with us, you can choose to give them the opportunity to play with our day camp dogs in group play! See our Day Camp page for group play requirements. Or, if you prefer, your dog can enjoy some quality playtime with one of our trained boarding staff members!

Playtime for cats

You can select for your feline friend to have individual playtime where they get quality time cuddling or playing with our trained boarding team.

Spacious kennels for dogs of all sizes

Our kennels and dog runs are designed to give your pet, no matter their size, plenty of room to stretch out, relax, and get comfortable.

Cozy kitty condos with a view

Our cat condos are bi-level, and they all have a window to our courtyard that often has many bird and squirrel visitors — a sure way to entertain your cat!

Hill’s Premium foods

While we are able to provide your pet with food (Hill's Premium diets), we highly encourage you to bring food from home. Being in a new environment can be unsettling for most pets and stomachs can get a little upset. Feeding them their regular diet can help ease their stomach troubles.

Board Your Pet with Medical Professionals

Board Your Pet with Medical Professionals

By boarding your pet at an animal hospital, you can rest assured that they’ll receive any veterinary care they need during their stay. For your pet’s added safety and comfort, we offer:

  • Professionally trained staff. Our boarding staff is medically trained, and we also have professional dog caretakers who look after our canine guests to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
  • Veterinarian on-call during weekends and holidays. For the safety of all our guests, we have a veterinarian on call every weekend and holiday to tend to any medical emergencies during your pet’s stay.
  • Medication administration. Our staff is trained to administer any medication your pet could need, whether it’s a tablet, an oral solution, or an injection. There will be a small fee for medication administration.
  • Special care for pets with special needs. If your pet has a chronic illness or health condition that requires special care, you can trust our medically trained staff to give them all the care they need.
Cat & Dog Boarding Requirements

Cat & Dog Boarding Requirements

We want every pet to leave our boarding facility as healthy as they came in — if not healthier! In order to do so, we have a couple of requirements for making their stay a safe and pleasant one:

  • All pets must be up-to-date on their vaccinations. For dogs, they must have their rabies, DHPP, Bordetella and Canine Influenza vaccines. For cats, they must have their rabies and FRCP vaccines.
  • All pets must be free of parasites. We require a negative fecal exam at least 12 months before their stay with us. If we do find any parasites on your pet, we will treat them and give them a parasite preventative, all at an additional cost. All dog boarders and daycampers should be receiving monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Cats should receive monthly flea prevention. We will administer a dose at admission for pets that are not current.
