Boarding Your Pet
Our Animal Hospital provides boarding for our patients. Relax and enjoy your vacation knowing that your cat and/or dog are being cared for in our veterinarian-supervised facility. We offer a safe, clean, and comfortable environment. If your pet has special needs, health issues, takes medication, or is on a specialized diet, our experienced staff is capable of accommodating your requests. We welcome any questions concerning our boarding facilities. Call today to learn more about our accommodations, boarding policies, and fees, and to schedule your pet’s stay.
Cats require a different type of environment in order to feel comfortable and interested in their surroundings. We have redesigned our boarding area with a separate cattery for cats in the front of the hospital, far away from the dog boarding area, and the bustle of the hospital. Our feline friends have cat condos, which allow them to climb to different levels or to pull back into a quieter or lower-light area. The condos include a window to the outside so the cats have interesting activities to view, and they can be combined for cats that live together. We welcome tour requests of our new feline boarding area.
We have dog kennels of all sizes, including areas designed for extra-large breeds. Every kennel has non-slip mats and comfortable bedding. Know that whether your pet is a first-time boarder or a frequent guest, they will be happy and healthy in a stress-free environment. Our staff here at Viera East makes sure your pets get the love and attention they would get at home.
Our fully trained staff can administer any medications for your pet. Including injections.
The medication fee is $5.50 per day.
We offer playtime for all canine and feline boarders. This includes an extra walk for canines.
The playtime fee is $5.50 per day.
Preventative Care Requirements For Boarding
To help keep our furry friends safe and healthy, we have set requirements to prevent disease spread for pets to be boarded at Viera East Veterinary Center. If any of the following was performed by another veterinarian, please provide us with records for review. Viera East only provides boarding for our patients which means an exam is needed annually.
All Dogs must be up to date on the following:
- Rabies Vaccination
- Distemper/Hepatitis/Parainfluenza/Parvovirus (DA2PP) Vaccination
- Leptospirosis Vaccination
- Bordetella Vaccination
- Canine Influenza Vaccination (H3N2)
- Negative Fecal Parasite Test
- Yearly Heartworm Test
- Monthly Heartworm Prevention (can bring a box of prevention in as proof if not purchased through us)
All Cats must be up to date on the following:
- Rabies Vaccination
- Feline Distemper Vaccination (FVRCP)
- Negative Fecal Test if indoor/outdoor.
To keep all boarders comfortable and safe, and our facility flea and tick free, all boarders will be checked for these parasites when they arrive. If found to have fleas or ticks, your pet will be treated to remove them.
Services also include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression for dogs.
Dogs also receive a bath if staying more than five nights.
Please call us for pricing and availability. We would love to show you our boarding facilities, so stop in for a tour.
