Boarding at Quarry Ridge Animal Hospital

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 boarding services are available only to current hospital clients.

Boarded pets are cared for under the direct supervision of our doctors and veterinary techs. Our daily hospital rounds always include a visit to the boarding wing to check on our guests. A doctor or vet tech administers any necessary medications.

Our team of experienced kennel technicians attends to boarders' routine care throughout their stay. They stick to each pet's mealtime routine, keep everyone comfortable with clean 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!
