Boarding

Charlottesville Cat BoardingBoarding for Cats

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, there's enough to do without worrying about who's taking care of your beloved feline companion. Our pet boarding facility was created and designed with your pet's comfort, health, and safety in mind. Your cat’s stay in our clean, temperature-controlled boarding area includes personal attention and supervision by our experienced staff, access to medical care for administering medication or insulin if needed, and consultation with a doctor should any problems arise during their stay with us. For your pet’s complete comfort, special toys, blankets, food, and treats are welcome. We use “Feliway”, a calming feline pheromone, in our cat boarding spaces.

Medical Boarding for Dogs and Cats

For our canine and feline patients who have medical conditions that require a caregiver with veterinary knowledge and experience, we offer specialized medical boarding. Cats are welcome to board thru the weekend, but we do not board dogs for the weekend, as we are unable to walk them outside as often as they would need. Our experience medical team will attend to your pet’s physical and social needs while boarding. We are able to administer medications, inject insulin, or give subcutaneous fluids. If our pet’s health status should change while boarding with us, the doctor is available to re-evaluate your pet’s needs. And again, we encourage special items from home, such as toys, blankets, food and treats.

Charlottesville Pet BoardingDaycare Services

To best accommodate your busy schedule, we offer drop-off appointments, allowing you to leave your pet with us for a time while you return to work, or run errand, or grab a coffee with a friend! The doctor will call you after your pets exam (and treatment if already discussed before drop off) are completed to ensure that you have no questions about your pets’ care. If your pet gets stressed or anxious while visiting our clinic, let us know in advance so that we can put together a fear free plan for your pet.

Boarding Policies

Whether for boarding or drop off services we ask that all canine boarders be vaccinated for Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella and all feline boarders be vaccinated for Distemper and Rabies. Cats must also have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS. If vaccines have been done in the past and are just now due, they can be done on the day of drop off. New patients, of those who have never had vaccines before should come in for an initial visit to meet the doctor and receive needed vaccinations. Exceptions are sometimes made for sick pets who need to be seen urgently, so certainly call the office to discuss your situation with our staff.
