At Lakeland Veterinary Hospital, we offer a full-service, climate-controlled boarding facility, complete with separate cat condos. Kennel rooms provide natural lighting from our large windows located at the end of each room.  Dogs are walked three times per day (early in the morning, around the noon hour and in the early evening) and are given a complimentary bath with a minimum 5-night stay. Kennel baths and professional pet grooming are also available. Feel free to bring in special toys or blankets to make your pet feel more at home.  We request that any owner provided bedding be able to be easily laundered.  Large beds or thick blankets will be unable to be laudered in our facility. 

Because we are a veterinary hospital, we can provide special care, such as medical treatments, administer medication and feed your pet prescription diets, if necessary. You will have the added benefit of knowing that if your animal experiences any illness while you're away, it will be promptly and competently addressed by one of our doctors.

Boarding fees:

Outlined below are the prices for boarding per night. As stated above, a complimentary bath is given with a minimum of five-night stay. Our fees are based on the nights each pet stays over, so it does not matter what time you bring your pet in or drop them off - as long as it's during regular business hours. We also offer grooming services that can be added on to your pet's boarding stay. Ask us for details!

Also, because we are a veterinary facility, we can offer special services. We are trained in insulin care as well as medication administration. When your pet is boarding, it is also an ideal time to get a fecal sample checked for intestinal parasites! Our doctors can do wellness examinations to make sure your pet is in optimal health, as well as updating vaccines.
