Pet Boarding with Us Is Safe, Comfortable, and Fun

Your pet deserves to have a vacation of their own when you’re away! At our animal hospital in Kettering, pets enjoy spacious accommodations and plenty of playtime from our attentive staff. While your pet boards with us, they are always under the care of our veterinary staff, so you can leave them, worry-free. Our pet boarding facility provides guests with everything they could need and more!

Our Pet Boarding Amenities

Cats and dogs don’t always get along, so the first thing you should know is that our feline guests board in a separate area away from our dog kennels. Cats enjoy cozy condos, a gentle serenade of classical music, and Feliway pheromones to reduce stress. Dogs stay in state-of-the-art Mason kennels that keep them comfortable and safe. While staying with us, your pet will have:

  • Comfortable bedding that is frequently washed and replaced
  • High-quality nutritious food including Royal Canin, Iams, or Science Diet
  • Fresh water always provided
  • Exercise 3-4 times daily, plus individual playtime
  • Complimentary nail trim
  • Complimentary bath and brush for pets who stay with us for five nights or more

Please note that while we do provide food, if your pet is prone to stress while away from home, it may be more beneficial for you to bring their own food.

Pet Boarding Details

To maintain a safe and clean facility, we do have certain requirements in order for your pet to board with us. Our pet boarding requirements include:

  • Current vaccinations
    • For dogs, this means DHPP or DHLPP, rabies, canine influenza, and Bordetella
    • For cats, this means FVRCP and rabies
  • Free of fleas and other parasites
    • If your pet does have fleas, we will administer flea treatment at your expense.

Additionally, pick-up and drop-off times are as follows:

  • Drop-off: between 8:00am – 11:30am and 2:00pm – 5:30pm
  • Pick-up: between 8:00am and noon on the day of departure. If you leave your pet until after 2pm, you will be charged an additional day of boarding.

Please remember that our practice is closed daily between noon and 2:00pm.
