We’re pleased to offer boarding and medical boarding services for current Quarry Ridge Animal Hospital clients. We have dedicated spaces to accommodate cats, dogs, exotic pets, and animals with special needs. Our whole team works together to make sure every pet is happy, healthy, and safe during their stay.
Please note that our boarding services are only available to our current clients.

All boarded pets are cared for under the direct supervision of our doctors and veterinary techs. The medical team’s daily hospital rounds always include a visit to the boarding wing to check on our guests. A doctor or a vet tech administers all necessary medications.

Our team of experienced kennel technicians attends to boarders’ routine care throughout their stay. They stick to each boarder’s mealtime routine, keep everyone comfortable with soft bedding, and spend quality time with each pet every day. They walk every dog on-leash in our fenced-in outdoor space 4-5 times daily—rain or shine. A kennel tech lives on the premesis.

Please feel free to request a tour of our facility!
