Medical Boarding for Cats & Dogs, Stroudsburg Vet

Boarding: A Typical Day

Medical Boarding for Dogs

For dogs, we offer private, climate-controlled kennels with soft, clean bedding where they spend most of their time. 

Any medication is administered according to your stated specifications to replicate their at-home routine as closely as possible. 

Each patient is continually monitored for any changes in medical conditions during their stay, in addition to signs of fear, stress, or anxiety. Our veterinarian will address any concerns. 

The staff also take dogs for short walks to enjoy the fresh air and an opportunity to go to the bathroom. 

Medical Boarding for Cats

We will note any specifications or requirements your cat might have during a discussion with you. Our goal is to provide a seamless transition from their at-home routine to their time with us.

During your cat's stay with us, we will feed and administer medication as specified by you, so that their routine is as close as possible to what they are used to at home. 

Cats get daily interaction with our staff, who provide play, pets, snuggles, and enrichment activities. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned, and disinfected periodically and throughout the day.
