Pet Boarding for Your Cat or Dog
Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital offers high-quality boarding for dogs and cats. Whether you have to be out of town overnight or for an extended period of time, your pet will be happy and well cared for here. All pets are required to be current on vaccinations, if your pet needs vaccinations prior to admittance we will be happy to schedule an office visit with one of our veterinarians. Dogs are required to be current with Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella and Canine Influenza. Cats are required to be current with Rabies, Distemper and a recent Leukemia/FIV test.
Our kennel is staffed 24 hours a day for your pet’s comfort. All of our runs and cages are indoors and temperature controlled so that pets will be comfortable in any type of weather. Our staff will take your dog outside to be walked one-on-one through a beautiful nature trail on our property. It is fully fenced and we keep pets on the leash. All pets get a great deal of personalized care.
What to Pack When Boarding Your Pet
Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital will supply soft bedding, food, and most medications for your pet. Runs and cages are scrubbed every day and bedding is washed frequently so that we can keep everything clean and odor free. Don’t worry—your pet will be very comfortable with us.
If you prefer to bring your pet’s own food, please package it in individual bags labeled for each day of boarding. The label should include your pet’s name, your last name, type of food, and amount per feeding.
If your pet is taking a medication that we do not keep in stock, we ask that you bring it with you. Please make sure it is clearly labeled and only bring the amount necessary for the stay. The label should include your pet’s name, your last name, type and strength of medication, and dosing directions. There is an administration fee for giving medications while boarding.
Please allow approximately 15 minutes when admitting your pet into the kennel, this time will allow us to review paperwork with you and discuss guest activities.
