We know that it can be stressful to leave your pet alone when you go out of town. This goes doubly if your companion is feeling unwell or is recovering from surgery. Our veterinary hospital serving the Grenada area wants to help put your mind at ease in these situations.
We provide complete general boarding services for all of our patients, and medical boarding services for pets with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate.
We have boarding services for both dogs and cats, including daycare service if your pet need monitoring for a short time, overnight stays as an alternative to boarding facilities, and medical boarding for pets that need some extra veterinary attention from us during their stay.
Each morning, our canine boarders venture outside to our outdoor run for some fresh air before their breakfast. While they are outside, their kennels are cleaned, disinfected and stocked with fresh linens.
Depending on your dog's physical activity needs and ability, we will walk them on a regular schedule during their stay.
Your dog will also have supervision throughout their entire stay with us – both during walks and while they rest. in the evenings, dogs will be taken out for one last walk before bedtime while their kennels are freshened up to ensure your pet rests comfortably through the night.
Your cat will be fed according to their individual dietary needs to ensure they receive proper balanced nutrition while in our care.
We will provide your feline friend with one-on-one engagement and interaction (as long as they want it). This includes pets, snuggles and play. We will periodically, check cats' litter boxes, clean them out, disinfect their kennel and tidy up throughout the day.
We refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.
At Veterinary Associates, we are serious animal lovers. Our whole team loves giving our boarders all of the attention and care that they deserve while thy are staying with us.

All pets must be dropped off or picked up during regular office hours. Reservations are recommended, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, we recommend that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the chance that a spot will be available.
Food: We provide food for pets staying with us at no additional charge. However, please feel free to bring enough of your pet's regular food to last the duration of the stay. If your dog or cat requires prescription food, there will be a charge to cover the expense unless their food is provided.
Medication: If your pet takes any medication, bring it along for our staff to administer.
Toys: we do not recommend bringing toys or blankets, as we provide these needs in-house and cannot replace any lost or damaged items.

We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
On the day when you drop your pet off with us, there will be a few steps you can take to help reduce the stress that your companion may be feeling.
Make sure to spend some extra time with your companion before dropping them off and give them some vigorous exercise beforehand so they are feeling a little tired and a bit calmer than normal. When arriving at our facility, remain calm, cheerful and confident during the seperation.
For pets that are not on a special diet, we can provide high-quality pet food that is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. An additional fee may apply.
