Get on Board With Compassionate, Clean Boarding When You Are Away
Worrying about the care and well-being of your cat or dog is the last thing anyone wants to deal with when on vacation or traveling for any reason. Valleydale Animal Clinic’s boarding facility and expert staff relieves those worries completely, so you can relax and focus on your trip. Each dog or cat will receive individual, expert care from our trained and gentle staff.
Valleydale Animal Clinic offers spacious indoor runs (no cages) for dogs based on each dog’s size and breed. Your dog will receive 3 leashed walks and/or outdoor playtimes in our large fenced-in yards with outdoor pools and sunshades daily. You are welcome to bring favorite bedding, toys & food to make your dog feel more at home or use our provided items.
The cat area is a “feline only” zone in order to reduce stress for our feline guests. Each cat is in individual cages with a cozy round bed (or welcome to provide your own) for sleeping or hiding. Our attentive staff provides personalized attention - let us know what your cat prefers!
Senior Pets and Pets Needing Special Care
Finding safe and appropriate boarding for a senior or special needs pet is especially difficult. Our veterinarians oversee all boarding and are always on hand for pets that require expert medical care. If your pet requires regular medication, our trained staff will make sure that it is administered correctly while you are gone. Special arrangements can be made to keep senior or special needs pets comfortable and happy while boarding at our facility.
Boarding your pets can cause anxiety when they are in a new place with unfamiliar sights, sound and smells. Valleydale Animal Clinic has products such as Zylkene, Feliway or Adaptil that can help during these and other stressful situations (such as storms, fireworks or visitors to your home):
Valleydale Animal Clinic can administer Zylkene, Feliway or Adaptil to your pets while they board with us for a small fee (varies based on product, size and breed).
Vaccines and Parasites
All pets boarding at our facility are expected to be up to date on vaccines (including Bordetella “kennel cough”) and free of fleas and ticks. We have safe, effective products for flea & tick prevention.
