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.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."
    Maryem K.
  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
