Dog & Cat Boarding in Durham & Chapel Hill

dog and cat boardingNo matter how much you've looked forward to your road trip, vacation or other journey, leaving your pet behind is always cause for sadness -- and sometimes for concern. If you're worried about how your pet is doing while you're away, then you may find it impossible to enjoy your trip. Fortunately, you can alleviate these worries by scheduling cat or dog boarding at New Hope Animal Hospital.

Why Pets Benefit From Veterinary Boarding

Boarding in a veterinary facility is always preferable to leaving your pet at home, with only the occasional feeding or pat on the head from an obliging neighbor. Pets can easily feel as if they've been abandoned by their owners, which may lead to intense anxiety, destructive behavior, or even escape attempts. You also need to consider whether your pet would receive immediate care in the event of a sudden illness or injury. This last point applies to all pets, but it's especially critical for geriatric animals or animals who require regular care and monitoring for known medical issues.

A Variety of Services to Help Your Pet Feel at Home

New Hope Animal Hospital's pet boarding facilities offer a complete home-away-from-home for your special friend. In addition to the clean bedding, fresh water and high-quality food each pet receives, we also provide features such as a fenced-in play eras for dogs to socialize and burn off energy. B contrast, our cat boarding area offers the peace and quiet felines prefer. Best of all, our vet team can keep a close eye on your pet for any health issues that might call for attention, notifying you immediately to discuss the situation with you.

Dog boarding services start at $28 per dog for a single run or $24 for each additional dog in the same run. Cat boarding starts at $24 per day for each cat. You can also schedule pet bathing for an additional $21-40. We administer medications for a mere $2 each.

Schedule Boarding for Your Durham or Chapel Hill Pet

The first step in scheduling a boarding stay is making sure your Durham or Chapel Hill pet is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for parasites. (We can take care of these issues if necessary.) Boarding pick-up and drop-off is available from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday, and from 8am until noon on Saturday; you can also arrange a courtesy pick-up on Sunday at 6:30 pm. We bill by the day, so you don't have to scramble to retrieve and deliver your pet on a strict schedule. Call 919-490-2000 to schedule our boarding services!
