We offer dog and cat boarding at Prairie View Animal Hospital. We have four indoor dog runs and various sized dog kennels. The dogs are walked three times daily. Cats are provided with their own, quiet cat suite with horizontal access to a separate area that houses their litter box. If you choose, you can have a daily update texted or emailed to you while you are away.

Dog Boarding

Our staff will take your dog out for potty breaks three times daily. They are leash walked in a spacious grassy area. You may choose to bring your own supply of food, but we have plenty of treats and food that your pup can enjoy, too. We encourage you to bring any personal belongings (beds, toys, etc.) that may make your dog’s stay more enjoyable. We have the ability to administer medications of all types to your dogs, but please make sure the medications are provided to us in their original containers. Your dog’s belongings are stored in a dedicated area. At your request, we can give your dog a nice bubble bath before they go home.

We require that all dogs are up-to-date on rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations. We also require a negative fecal parasite exam within the past year. We ask that you administer a topical or oral flea and tick preventative before they arrive, or we can provide that service for you here.

Cat Boarding

Cats are boarded in a separate cat room so that they are not bothered by the noises and odors of other pets that are staying with us. They are allowed access to their litter box in an area separated from their bed and food. This may help diminish the stress associated with their natural instinct to eat away from where they eliminate. Our cat room is also equipped with a Feliway diffuser that emits a pheromone which may help calm some cats.

We require that your cat be up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccinations. We require a negative fecal parasite exam within the past year and that your cat has been tested negative for FeLV and FIV. We also ask that you apply a topical flea preventative before they arrive, or we can provide that service for you here.
