Boarding: A Typical Day
Medical Boarding for Dogs
Dogs are able to spend the majority of their time in private, climate controlled kennels with clean and soft bedding.
Medication will be administered according to your stated specifications, to ensure their routine is as similar as possible to their time at home.
During their stay with us, each of our patients are monitored for changes in medical conditions as well as for signs of anxiety, fear or stress. Our vets will be sure to address any of these concerns.
Dogs will also get short walks courtesy of our staff, to enjoy fresh air and an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
Medical Boarding for Cats
We will take careful note of any requirements of specifications your feline companion may have in a discussion with you. Our goal is to give your cat as seamless a transition as possible from their routine at home to their time with us.
During your cat's time with us, we will feed and administer medication as specified by you, so that their routine closely mimics their time at home.
Our staff interact with all of our feline boarders daily: playing, snuggling and providing enrichment activities. We will also check, clean and then disinfect litter boxes throughout the day.
