Blue Valley Animal Hospital Pet Boarding FAQ's

We know that leaving your pet behind while you go out of town can be stressful. You want to be sure your beloved pet gets the very best care possible while you are away from home. Have questions about pet boarding in Leawood or Overland Park?  Consult our FAQ's below to see how Blue Valley Animal Hospital can best care for your pet in your absence.

Our Overland Vet Discusses Common Questions about Pet Boarding

Why Should I Board My Pet?

When you choose a professional boarding service like Blue Valley Animal Hospital for cat and dog boarding, you can rest easy that we are providing the best care possible for your pet. If you simply hire the neighbor to check in on your pet, your dog or cat may go for hours without any care at all. Should they experience a medical emergency, care may be delayed. When boarding in our clinic, expert medical care from our licensed veterinarians, Dr. Brad Spain or Dr. Mary Gardner, is close at hand.

What Should I Expect When Boarding My Cat or Dog at Blue Valley Animal Hospital?

Dog Boarding - We provide elevated Kuranda beds for your dog to rest easily with his own blanket. We will inquire about his usual routine, snacks, toys, play, and feedings. We endeavor to follow his usual schedule as much as possible, providing one or two daily feedings as his custom, as well as an afternoon snack. You can supply your own food or let us take care of it with high-quality iVet Reduced Fat Canine food.

Cat Boarding - Cats tend to prefer a quieter boarding environment.  Our specially equipped cat rooms are outfitted with a scratching post and climbing tower and large windows perfect for bird watching located away from the noise of the dogs. We will provide two littler cleanings a day and iVet Feline Reduced Fat Food.  Is your feline finicky? You are welcome to provide his food yourself.

What Medical Requirements Must My Pet Meet in Order to Be Boarded?

The health and safety of every pet entrusted to our care is our utmost concern.  In order to ensure the safety of all of our guests, we require proof of the following:

  • Dog Boarding: dogs must have Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations. In addition, canines must have received flea and heartworm treatments in the past 30 days as well as negative fecal and Giardia results every six months. We also strongly recommend the Canine Influenza vaccine. 
  • Cat Boarding: Rabies, Distemper, and Chlamydia Vaccinations, as well as negative fecal results within 6 months and a flea treatment within the previous 30 days.

Are There Any Pet Boarding Discounts I Should Know About?

We offer discounted rates for dog and cat boarding when you:

  • Board your pet(s) for more than 8 nights.
  • Board two or more pets together.
  • Board three or more pets at the same time.
  • Every dog booked for six nights or more will receive a complimentary, full-service bath.
