Boarding ServicesWe are a State-of-the-Art Facility
Pine Grove Veterinary Clinic has a state-of-the art boarding facility. Dogs and cats are housed in separate areas to minimize natural tension. The dog boarding facility consists of four, large, 4X6-ft runs, and eight 3X6-ft runs in a temperature-controlled room with many windows for natural light. Each run is separated from its neighbor by a stainless steel panel to prevent cross-fence skirmishing. Depending on availability, each run can be opened to it’s adjoining run to double its size, and dogs from same family may share two runs if owner requests so. Smaller dogs can be put in the smaller (28X45 in) kennels, where they feel more secure.
All dogs are provided with a soft blanket or bed, sized according to their need, which is laundered every day. Kennels are rinsed and sanitized once daily or immediately after any elimination accidents occur. Elimination accidents are minimized by the provision of off-leash exercise periods at least three times daily. Dogs are taken for a walk and play outside in our big, shaded, completely fenced yard. Each dog is taken out individually by a kennel worker, unless two or more dogs come from the same family, and the owner requests for them to have outside time together. During walks, all dogs get plenty of loving interaction with our kennel stuff, they are talked to, brushed, played with. Normally, dogs are given time to sniff around in the yard and explore off leash.
We provide quality wet and dry food for our boarders. However, if their family wants them to stay on the diet brought from home, we, gladly follow the feeding instructions and keep boarders’ food refrigerated if necessary. At the owner’s request, we can medicate boarding animals. There is a small charge for it, and medications need to be brought in the original containers.
Boarding cats have a separate quiet room with the huge window for bird watching and sun bathing. Their individual cages are 28X43 inches. Besides food, water and litter box, each cat is provided with the soft pillow, and a cardboard box for hiding, climbing, and scratching. We can provide wet and dry food for boarding cats.

Besides cats and dogs we board birds and other small pets. We keep a close eye on our boarders’ mood, appetite, and elimination. Written records are kept daily, and can be provided to the owner at the pickup time. If stuff notice something abnormal, they report the problem to one of clinic’s veterinarians, and they check the boarding animal and prescribe change in the routine or even a medication, if necessary.
