Pet Boarding FAQs From New Hope Animal Hospital in Durham

Pet Boarding

Are you looking for a great place to board your pet next time you leave town for an extended amount of time? The staff at New Hope Animal Hospital in Durham would love to have your pet stay. Below are some frequently asked questions about pet boarding.

Why Choose Us for Pet Boarding?

We offer all kinds of services to make sure your cat and/or dog feel right at home with us during their stay. You don't want to come home to a sick or stressed animal because they were left home alone for a time. Leave your pets with us to get the care and attention they need when you are gone. We provide clean bedding, great food, and fresh water. We also have a fenced-in play area for dogs to socialize and exercise. Our veterinarian team will also watch over your pet closely to make sure they are healthy and to treat if they become ill during their stay with us. 

Why Should You Board Your Pet?

There are many reasons to board your pet. Many animals display negative behaviors when their owners leave them alone for extended periods of time. These behaviors include trying to escape, anxiety, and destroying property. All of this can be avoided when you choose to leave your pet with us at New Hope Animal Hospital. 

Why Is It Important to Board Your Pet When You are Gone?

Two main reasons to board your pet when you are gone are to keep your animal safe and happy while you are gone and to allow you to enjoy your time away, knowing that your pet is in good hands. If your pet becomes injured or sick while you are gone, you will come home to a distressed animal, causing you to stress out when you should feel rejuvenated while away. If your pet becomes sick while staying with us, we can make sure they get the rest and medication they need immediately, without you having to worry about taking your cat or dog to the hospital after you come back.

Schedule Your Pet's Stay With Us

Contact us as soon as you know you are leaving for a period of time so that we can hold a spot for your pet when you are gone. We are looking forward to getting to know your cat or dog while they are with us!
