VCA Metroplex Animal Hospital & Pet Lodge

Boarding and Grooming

VCA Metroplex offers both dog and cat boarding, daycare and grooming you can trust. Our hospital offers a climate-controlled large indoor boarding facility for your pet’s comfort. It is sometimes difficult to find a boarding facility that will tend to your pet’s needs and give them the attention they deserve. Boarding at our facility is ideal, especially if your dog or cat has certain medical conditions that require medication. There will be veterinarians and technicians to monitor your pets closely and manage any problems that may arise. You may call daily to check on your pet and a member of our staff will be happy to speak with you. So that we can accommodate you pet, please make reservations in advance, especially during the holiday season. We have 24-hour pick up and drop off for your convenience. We will also review your pet’s vaccination history to make sure everything is up to date prior to the start of the boarding visit. If for any reason your pet needs vaccinations, our veterinarians would be glad to administer the vaccines during the stay. We will be more than happy to give you a tour of the boarding facility Monday thru Saturday from 7am to 5pm.

Effective July 1st, there is a $25 fee for pets arriving to or departing from the Pet Lodge between 7p.m. to 7a.m. daily.
