Dog Boarding

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, there is a lot to do and enough stress without having to worry about who is going to take care of your beloved companion. Rather than impose on a neighbor or rely on a pet sitter with little animal care training, VCA Lloyd Animal Hospital offers boarding for your dog, cat or bird that is safe and comfortable. Our caring, experienced staff is dedicated to providing personal attention to your pet.

Any special health needs such as medicine administration, food preparation and exercise requirements will all be reviewed with you. You are welcome to bring your own food if your pet is on a special diet. Toys and personal items are also welcome to help make your pet as comfortable as possible.

Reservations are required for all pet boarders.

Requirements for Boarding
We require that all boarding animals be current on an annual physical examination, have a negative stool sample within the last six months and are up to date on the following vaccinations:

  • Dogs: Rabies, Canine Influenza, Bordetella, Distemper

Please make sure your dog or cat has the required vaccinations prior to check-in. If your pet has been vaccinated at another facility, we must have a copy of the current vaccination record in our file (preferably prior to check-in) or your pet will be required to have those vaccines re-administered through our hospital. It is your responsibility to make sure your veterinarian has faxed this record to us and that we have received it.

To protect the well-being of the pets in our care, we reserve the right to refuse any pet that may have a contagious illness or other problems.

If you would like more information about the pet boarding services VCA Lloyd Animal Hospital offers or to schedule an appointment to board your dog, cat, or bird at our animal hospital, please call (781) 344-2500.
