Boarding & Grooming

Northside Veterinary Hospital is a full-service boarding facility. Our climate controlled kennel can accommodate all pet sizes from toy breeds to giant dog breeds, as well as multiple pet groups. All dogs are walked several times each day in our spacious, fenced-in backyard. We also have large outdoor runs to allow extra leisure time in the warmer months.

 In addition, we offer our deluxe 3-story cat condos, The condos are separated from the general boarding facility, providing a quiet, comfortable environment for cats.

We provide all the necessities for your pet, including bowls, toys, blankets, litter boxes and food, but we welcome anything you would like to bring for your pet during their stay. However, if your pet has a food allergy or is on a special diet, we recommend bringing their own food for the duration of their visit. Our assistants are happy to dispense medications, as well as perform other tasks, such as brushing and nail trims, if requested.

Our facility is flea-free and as a precaution, each pet receives a Capstar pill (to kill fleas for 24 hours) prior to going home. Additionally, dogs that board for more than one night receive a complementary to: for at least two nights, receive a complimentary bath. We require that all boarding animals are current on vaccinations, including DHLPP, Bordetella, and Rabies for dogs and FVRCP for cats. We take reservations for boarding, so give us a call if you are interested. We also welcome tours of the boarding facility, so feel free to ask!

Boarding fees are charged per night and we offer a complimentary bath for those staying over 2 nights. We have cat condos available. These are larger areas that are separate from the dog kennels.

  • "Thank you to Dr Wood and staff for fixing our Micks leg today after we had taken him to another vet for a laceration repair. The sutures that we’re placed by the other vet ripped open five days later. Mick is home resting comfortably with his cozy pillow around his neck. We appreciate your help in getting this fixed correctly! Thank you for your time and compassion!"
