Did you know that Dutch Fork Animal Hospital provides boarding for your beloved pets? We have separate areas for dogs and cats, and we even offer luxury runs for the most pampered member of your family. All dogs that are kept with us are walked at least three times a day in a fenced grassy area. Our kennel yards are furnished with “Ultimate K9 Turf”, a synthetic grass! This allows your pups to be comfortable outside and not have to worry about muddy paws. The synthetic grass is anti-microbial and keeps the yards 17 degrees cooler! They are walked individually and are always supervised. We provide Science Diet maintenance and prescription food for your pets at no additional charge, but feel free to bring your own food if your pet requires a special diet. We will gladly administer any medications your pet may require, but we do ask that you supply the medications. Our veterinarians are available to take care of any health problems that may arise.
All of our boarding patients are required to be up to date on all of their vaccines. This ensures the safety of all the pets staying with us. Dogs are required to be current on DHLPP, Rabies, Bordetella (kennel cough) and Canine Influenza Virus (CIV). We require Bordetella to be given every 6 months. Cats are required to have had a negative Feline Leukemia/FIV test and must be current on their FVRCP, FELV (for indoor/outdoor cats), and Rabies. If your pet is in need of any of these vaccines, we will be happy to update them during their stay with us.
Our luxury boarding area offers spacious rooms for the special dogs in your life. They are located in a quieter section of the hospital, offer cable TV, beds, raised feeders, and a local artist has painted new murals so your pet can feel like he or she is travelling the world! Each kennel has a new travel theme. Fluffy can sleep at the base of the Swiss Alps! Sweetie can relax with a view of the Eiffel Tower! Jake can experience St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russia from his comfortable cot! In our regular boarding section of the hospital, we have several sized runs to choose from. Our highly trained kennel staff is constantly with all of our boarders, and can determine which size is best suited for your pet. You don't have to worry about bringing any bedding for your pet. We have cots and lots of blankets and beds for your dog to have a comfy place to rest, ensuring that your items are not lost or damaged. We also offer large family runs for those families with more than one dog who wish to stay together.
For an additional fee, we will happily bathe your dog prior to departure. The bath includes nail trim, ear cleaning, anal gland expression, shampoo, blow dry, and brush out.
Cats have their own special room which is separate from the dog section. In addition to regular cat boarding, there are cat condos available for families who would like to board more than one cat together. We also have a wonderful suite for the cats complete with perches, a window view, and all those fun little toys cats love.
