Boarding & Grooming

Cat and Dog Boarding in Dale CityBoarding at MapleShade Animal Hospital

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, there's enough to do without worrying about the care of your beloved companion. This is especially true if your pet has a chronic or acute medical condition that requires a caregiver with veterinary knowledge and experience.

Rather than impose on a neighbor or rely on a pet sitter with little animal care training, we invite you to visit MapleShade Animal Hospital, where we provide veterinary-supervised boarding for your dog or cat that is affordable, 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 be reviewed with you.

Our over-sized kennels are temperature-controlled and pets are walked in a grassy area three times each day. If your pet is afraid of the dark, no need to worry - our boarding areas have nightlights as well as soft music playing at all times. You are welcome to bring food, toys, and personal items to help make your pet as comfortable as possible during its stay. All pets staying longer than ten days are given a complementary bath and nail trim.

Reservations are required for all pet boarders.

Grooming for PetsRequired Vaccinations for Boarding

We require that all boarding dogs and cats be current on the following vaccinations:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Bordetella for dogs

Please vaccinate your dog or cat prior to the check-in date. If that is not possible, we can provide needed vaccines the day of 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 for boarding that may have a contagious illness or other problems.

Grooming for PetsGrooming

Grooming is an important part of your pet's regular wellness care and a great way to keep him or her looking and feeling great. Regular grooming can also help in the prevention and early detection of skin infections and growths before they become a serious problem.

MapleShade Animal Hospital is happy to offer basic bathing, nail trims, and sedated shave down for cats.
