We offer boarding services for dogs, cats, and pocket pets while their owners are out of town. We have 29 indoor/outdoor kennels for large dogs, as well as dozens of indoor kennels.
While boarding, your animal will be overseen by all members of our staff during hospital hours. Please call the hospital to discuss specific services you would like provided during your animal's stay. All boarding reservations must be made ahead of time, and all new clients must provide current veterinary records before reservations can be made.
*All new boarding clients are required to pay a deposit equaling one day of boarding stay to schedule a reservation.* This deposit will be applied to the boarding balance and is refundable as long as cancels and reschedules are communicated prior to the scheduled stay. This boarding deposit is non-refundable to no-call/no-show clients.
Please note: if your pet is on any medications, we recommend bringing medication in the prescription bottle with the prescription label. This helps to ensure medications can be properly identified and administered. Our boarding admission form also includes a section where you must identify any current medications.
