Pet Boarding

Cat Boarding

When traveling for business or taking your family on vacation there is a lot to do and enough stress without having to worry about who is going to take care of your beloved animal companion. This is especially true if your pet has a chronic or acute medical condition that requires a caregiver with some veterinary knowledge and experience.

Rather than impose on a neighbor or rely on a pet sitter with little animal care training, VCA County West Animal Hospital offers veterinarian supervised boarding for pets with medical needs. For example, if your dog is epileptic or your cat has diabetes, we are able to offer your pet safe and comfortable boarding as well as any necessary medical care.

We are all pet owners and deliver our boarding service as we would want for our own pets. When you bring your pet for boarding, he / she is personally admitted to the hospital by one of our trained veterinary technician team members.

Your pet's special health needs, such as medicine administration, food preparation, and exercise restrictions, are reviewed with you. In many cases, clients will bring their pet's own food as many are on special diets.

We offer a very modern facility for boarding your cat or dog. Each boarding area is air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. We provide individual large dog kennels with outdoor runs. Our staff also takes dogs outside individually in the fenced in exercise yard several times daily.

For your cat, we proudly offer the latest in kitty condos, that are away from any barking dogs. Each condo allows for ample movement and they are upstairs, away from the hustle and bustle of our busy clinic in a more calm and relaxing space. Clients are of course welcome to bring their own food and toys. Each cat gets their own kennel with a cat bed, litter box, and food trays.

We do require reservations and our boarders must be current on certain vaccines: For cats, we require rabies, feline distemper and a negative fecal exam within the past year.

We offer a free bath after 10 days of boarding.
