Things to Know for Boarding

  • Boarding fees are charged per calendar day. If a bath is requested on the day of discharge, the fee for the last calendar day is waived.
  • There is no check-in or check-out time for boarding. However, if your pet is over 7 years of age (a senior pet), or requires medication, we ask that you check-in with a doctor so that he/ she can coordinate your pet’s special care with our medical team.
  • There may be an additional charge for special needs while boarding (ex: for medicating your pet or special feeding needs). Please contact us for more details.
  • Pets may not be admitted or discharged on holidays, Sundays or after-hours.

Vaccination Requirements for Boarding

Dogs - Rabies, DHPP, Influenza, Bordetella (within 6 months)


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
