PET BOARDING

Pet Boarding: Your Pet’s Home Away from Home

pet-boardingWill you be traveling for work or vacation?  If so, you may be wondering whether you should take your pet along on your trip or leave your pet at home.  Unfortunately, due to transportation and hotel logistics, it can be difficult to take pets along with you when you travel.  Leaving pets home alone, however, is rarely a good option either.  That’s why our animal hospital in Rancho Bernardo offers professional veterinary pet boarding.  Our boarding facilities are your pet’s home away from home, providing a safe, secure environment for your pets.

Our Rancho Bernardo Veterinarian Recommends Professional Pet Boarding

Leaving pets home alone without regular supervision will only result in problems.   Even the most independent pets are used to the reliable presence of their owners.   A sudden departure can be confusing, leading to stress and anxiety for pets.   Worse, without supervision, pets may damage furniture or attempt to escape.

Even if a neighbor or friend drops by to care for your pet, this is not the same as your regular, reliable presence.  In the event of a health emergency, such as an accidental poisoning, it could be hours or even a whole day before your pet receives the veterinary care that he needs.   Sadly, this care could come too little, too late.  That’s why our veterinary care team strongly discourages pet owners from leaving their pets home alone.

Professional pet boarding provides a safe, secure environment for your pet.   Our compassionate, experienced staff is always available to care for your pet’s needs, whether this is administering medication or serving your pet a specialty diet.   Our staff is fully experienced caring for pets of all ages, temperaments and needs.   We understand the best way to help nervous or anxious pets relax and enjoy their boarding experience is by treating them as you would.

Our veterinary boarding team provides interactive, supervised play for dogs.   Cats are boarded in a separate, quiet area so they can relax without the stress of loud noises or new smells.

Our animal hospital in Rancho Bernardo follows strict safety rules to keep pets’ health and our boarding facilities disease-free.   We sanitize the entire boarding kennel on a regular basis.   Additionally, all pet owners must submit proof that their pets are up-to-date on all vaccinations, including rabies; dogs must also be up-to-date on the bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine.

Should pets become ill during boarding or suffer an unexpected veterinary emergency, our veterinarian is just steps away to provide life-saving assistance.   For added peace of mind, our animal hospital already has your pet’s medical records on file. This allows our veterinary team to quickly and effectively make decisions that protect your pet’s health and well-being.

Testimonials

Dr. Stevens was not in and the Doctor that took care of Bambi was wonderful. He was so gentle with her and took the time to explain all that he found in his examination. He was only substituting for Dr. Stevens but I would like to thank him for his help. She is doing just fine now. Off hand I don't remember his name but he was a young man, wore glasses and had a French accent.

Toby displayed a shaking of the head for some time. Only in our wellness visit did I learn that the growth of the hair in his ears lead to an undisclosed ear infection. Thanks to the doctor's vigilance did I learn of the problem. Thanks Dr. Stevens.
