Boarding

Boarding

We have separate boarding for cats and dogs!

For your pet’s safety, all dogs must have proof of up-to-date rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella vaccines for all services. Cats must have proof up-to-date rabies and feline distemper.

At Lawrence Veterinary Hospital, we understand your pet is a part of your family and we will treat them like part of ours. Our staff will check on your pet several times throughout the day and evening to make sure they are comfortable.

Our boarding facility provides a pleasant “home away from home” for your pets. We have separate facilities for dogs and cats! We offer indoor, fully heated and air-conditioned accommodations maintained by highly trained, attentive staff.

Clients can make your online boarding requests through the Make an Appointment icon to the right, or call us at 785-841-9956.

Boarding facilities:

Our boarding facility provides a pleasant “home away from home” for your pets. We have separate rooms for dogs and cats! We offer indoor, fully heated and air-conditioned accommodations maintained by highly trained, attentive staff.

All dogs receive at least two daily outdoor walks. We have a fenced yard where dogs can play and exercise on-leash. Rooms are provided with comfy blankets and runs have sleeping bunks. All canine boarders who stay longer than four nights receive a complimentary bath before going home. We pamper your pet with our massaging “Hydro-Surge” bathing system (your pets walk directly into the bathing area—no lifting involved). We complete the bath by putting them under a dryer that gently blows warm air over them to dry their coat and keep them comfortable.

The kitty room has toys, sleeping shelves, huts and a scratching post. Our resident cats, Charmin, Wanda and Mooch, provide kitty company and conversation. Each room has comfy fleece blankets for sleeping.

Diet:

We feed Hill’s Science diet as well as Hill’s Select dog treats and kitty treats at no extra charge, but we recommend you bring your own pet food and special treats. We also carry Purina and Royal Canin brand. Please divide your pet’s food into individual meals (Zip bags work well for this) and label each bag with their name. Please be aware that abrupt changes in your pet’s diet can cause upset stomach and diarrhea. We also want to make sure that your pet gets home with all personal belongings, so please mark everything with a permanent marker.

Medication:

We will be happy to administer any medications you provide. There is a nominal charge to administer medications. Please make sure prescription labels include the name of your pet and dosing instructions.

Vaccination and Other Requirements:

All pets must be current on vaccinations at least two weeks prior to boarding (see below). We require that your pet has had a fecal sample checked for internal parasites within the past year. In addition, we will check your pet for fleas and ticks upon arrival. If parasites are found, we will treat them and charge accordingly.

Vaccinations required:

  • Dogs: DHPP (distemper), Rabies and Bordetella
  • Cats: Fvrcp (distemper), Rabies
