A Home Away From Home
It can be stressful to leave your pets at home when you go away, especially if they are ill or recovering from a procedure or surgery. Let our Perry Animal Hospital staff put your mind at ease.
We provide complete general pet boarding services for all of our patients, and medical boarding services for pets with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate.
While booking to board your pet at Perry Animal Hospital you can also conveniently schedule any procedures your pet may need (such as spaying, neutering, or dental surgery), allowing your pet to recover under the careful supervision of our vet team.
Pet Boarding: A Typical Day
Our dog boarding area has both indoor and outdoor runs for your pup and they are provided with clean bedding. Your dog's boarding area is cleaned and sanitized daily.
Depending on their capability, dogs are hand walked at least twice a day. Your pup will have supervision throughout their entire stay with us and will receive lots of love and attention from our vet team.
Cats that board with us are kept in a separate area from dogs to ensure they feel safe and relaxed throughout their stay.
Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home. We provide daily, one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!).
Linens are refreshed daily and their litter boxes are checked, cleaned, and disinfected periodically throughout the day.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.
You can also schedule ahead to have our Perry vets perform routine wellness exams, as well as any necessary procedures (spaying, neutering, dental procedures, etc.) while they are boarding with us.

Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking. You can also fill out our boarding form before your stay here.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?
For pets that are not on a special diet, we provide Hills Science Diet pet food.
