Boarding


We are pleased to offer boarding for your pet. Our purpose is to provide a safe, comfortable, and caring place for your pet while under our care. Although there’s “no place like home”, our staff will provide loving, compassionate care under doctor’s supervision while spending their vacation or “day at the spa” with us. Our staff is here to care for your pet 7 days a week. Since our full staff is here only during our regular schedule, your pet will be admitted and discharged during regular office hours.

Our deluxe boarding facilities are indoors and centrally heated and air-conditioned to provide consistent comfort 24 hours a day. Small and medium cages and large runs and suites are available with comfy blankets, and your pet will be placed in accommodations appropriate to its size or you may request an available upgrade. Should your pet require medical care or preventative treatment while at our hospital, you can rest assured that he/she will receive the best possible care.

Our secure courtyard allows your pet to have outside playtime and potty time three times daily. All of our boarders receive top quality IVET brand food (or your own food if you prefer) and fresh water is available at all times. You can be sure we will administer your pet’s medication or vitamins and all pets who stay with us go home clean and flea-free. We offer baths, which includes bathing, nail trims, anal gland expression, and ear cleaning.

If your feline friend is staying with us, we offer a separate boarding area for their comfort and to prevent barking from disturbing them. Cats are closely monitored and litter boxes are cleaned immediately upon soiling.

Birds and exotics also have a separate area for their stay. We have bird cages available, or if your cage is portable, you may bring that for their stay. We encourage bird and exotic owners to bring the food that their pet is used to eating. We are happy to feed fruits and vegetables brought by owners and have a refrigerator available to keep them fresh.

For both your pet’s protection and the protection of others, proof of current vaccinations is required for all dogs, cats, and birds staying at our hospital. If your pet is not current, we can vaccinate your pet when it comes in for boarding. For dogs we require distemper/parvo combination, rabies, bordetella (kennel cough) and an intestinal parasite check within the last year. Cats are required to have feline distemper and rabies vaccinations. Birds must be vaccinated for polyoma virus.

We encourage you to make reservations in advance, especially around holidays, and of course, you may take a tour of our facilities at any time. It is our goal to make your pet’s stay as comfortable as possible.
