Heading out of town? If you are planning a vacation in a place where your furry friend is, unfortunately, not welcome, call Gateway Animal Hospital! Our boarding facility is the perfect place for your pet while you are away, whether for an extended stay or just for the day. We offer both dog and cat boarding year-round, in a variety of condos and kennels for all sizes and budgets.

Our spacious, clean and comfortable indoor-only kennels are temperature-regulated for the comfort of your dog and cat. Our educated and compassionate staff will provide a regular walking schedule several times each day, so your dog can stretch its paws. We also offer a quiet and restful condo for our kitty friends to stay that is separate from the dog boarding area. Feel free to stop by anytime for a tour of our facility.

We would also be happy to make arrangements for your pet to have an annual wellness exam, vaccination boosters, basic grooming (nail trims, ear cleaning, anal glands, baths, etc.), required medications, and even teeth cleaned while staying with us. Ask us for details.

To make your pet's boarding stay more affordable, the 6th night will be on us. Purchase 5 nights of boarding and the 6th night will be FREE!* We do book reservations fast, so give us a call today at 718-984-1000 to book your pet's stay. Please don't hesitate to give us a call for any questions that you may have.

See you soon!

Yours truly,

The Doctors and Staff at Gateway Animal Hospital

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.
