What Vaccines do my pets need to board at Glen Park Animal Hospital?

Cats should be up-to-date on FVRCCP and rabies vaccines and should have a recent fecal exam with no parasites noted. Dogs should be up-to-date on DA2PP, rabies, and Bordetella vaccines, with no parasites, noted on a fecal examination. If you aren't sure if your pet is up-to-date on shots, give us a call to make an appointment with a vet before your trip.

How much do you charge for pet boarding?

We charge $18.25 per day for cats. Boarding fees for dogs will vary depending on the size of your dog, but fees start at $19.25 per day.

Will my pet be kept in a cage?

Yes, we have a variety of kennel sizes to ensure that your cat or dog has plenty of room to stretch and move around.

Are cats and dogs kept in the same area?

No. In order to keep stress levels down, we keep dogs and cats in separate areas.

Will my pet have access to a veterinarian?

Yes! One of the benefits of boarding with us is having our veterinarians available for any necessary medical attention your pet might need.

Would you mind bathing my dog?

Not at all! In fact, we provide all dogs with a complimentary bath before they go home. Additional grooming services are available upon request.

Exclusive Offer


I have been bringing all of my dogs to Glen Park Animal Hospital for the past 20 years and have found their service to be excellent! I am a nurse and have found that the care, competency and compassion that the entire staff gives to the animals is as good as (and in some instances even better than) the "human doctors/hospitals"!! Dr. Larson explains everything and does good follow-up with my "fur-babies". You can tell that the entire staff loves their job!
