The Benefits of Boarding with Oakland Park Animal Hospital

First and foremost, when you board your dog with us, it is being looked after by caring professionals who know and understand the signs of stress and illness. Oakland Park Animal Hospital can provide the proper care should your pet become sick. We can administer any medications your pet may be taking. We ensure your dog receives the appropriate amount of food, attention, and exercise. But some people prefer boarding their dog with us because of the extra services we can provide in their absence.

For example, we can take care of grooming your pet while your gone, or even providing other care like addressing dental issues. As a full-service veterinarian, we offer more than a traditional boarding facility can provide.

Rather than just parking your pet or putting a burden on family or friends, we provide a pleasant and safe atmosphere with people who have made pet care their passion. You get peace of mind when you take advantage of our dog boarding services at Oakland Park Animal Hospital.

Fort Lauderdale Dog Boarding Tips and Requirements

When boarding your pet, it can make them feel more comfortable if you bring along their normal food, treats and toys. If they have a pet bed at home or favorite blanket, that can also help. There are also some requirements from our veterinarian at Oakland Park Animal Hospital. They include:

  • Your dog must be up to date on vaccinations and immunizations including rabies vaccinations

  • Your pet should have proof of a recent wellness examination

  • Pets need to be free of ticks, fleas, and parasites

Make sure you plan dog boarding far enough in advance, especially around holidays. Please make us aware of any special requirements your dog may have that our vet may need to be aware of.
