When selecting your dog’s lodgings while you are out of town, his or her “hotel” needs are not that different from a person’s needs! Ensuring that your dog’s boarding accommodations are safe, clean and comfortable will take away your worries while you are away.

Asking a boarding facility the right questions can help you decide on the best boarding options for your dog’s needs. Our veterinary staff has put together a list of questions you should ask any boarding facility where you are considering kenning your dog.

Veterinary Dog Boarding – Redondo Beach

Leaving your dog behind can be stressful them – and you – if you are worried about their boarding arrangements. But when you know that Spot or Fido is in caring and capable hands at a safe and reputable boarding facility, you can relax and enjoy your trip.

When you chose a veterinary facility for your dog’s boarding needs you know that your pet will be in a safe, secure, and sanitary facility, attended to by highly trained professionals.

Additionally, veterinarian boarding can accommodate any canine age, dietary, medical or health issues – ensuring that your furry companion receives the same individualized care and attention that they get at home.
