Boarding for Pets

At times you may need to travel somewhere to a destination where you cannot take your pet. Instances when you’re away from your pet can cause anxiety and sadness for your family. At Elmwood Veterinary Hospital, we are here to provide that special care for your pet while you are away.

Can I bring my pet’s bed for them to use in boarding?

Absolutely! Though we provide individual bedding for each pet you may bring their own bedding and/or toys to make them more at ease when they are with us. We also provide enough food and water to keep your pet hydrated and healthy. At our hospital, we are very gentle with our patients and we treat them as our own pets. Each pet has a living area that has all their individual necessities.

Will my pet get lonely during boarding?

Not necessarily. Your pet will miss you but we do our best to keep them engaged so they are happy. We create special bonds with your furry friend by providing one-on-one care and interactions. You can rely on us to do everything possible to make your pet content.

My pet has a health condition, how will they be cared for in your hospital?

Our boarding services go beyond having a safe place for your pet to stay. Our team is very knowledgeable about any ailments or conditions that pets may have and can provide treatment. If your pet is on medication, our team will ensure they are administered at the right time and in the correct doses. We can also provide special routines that cater to your pet’s health. If your pet has a health condition, reach out to us to discuss the specifics of their accommodation requirements at 506.858.9900.
