As much as you love your family pet, at some point, you may need to find someplace for him or her to stay when you will be away. It can be difficult to place your pet in the hands of someone else—and you probably have many questions. That’s good, because we’re here with the answers!

At St. Matthews Animal Clinic, our Patient Care Team handles the needs of all animals that are boarding. We are open for boarding drop-offs and pick-ups 7 days a week. All pets are closely supervised by our patient care team and if a medical issue is to arise, we will give you a call to make you aware of it and if you would like an exam performed by one of our veterinarians. We offer play times for pets if you want your pet to get extra exercise while he or she are boarding, and we also offer a pet friendly ice cream treat or peanut butter kong.

We take the trust you have placed in us very seriously when you leave your pet at St. Matthews Animal Clinic. We know we can’t match the comforts of home, but we always strive to provide an environment that is orderly, non-threatening, and safe. You should feel confident that at St. Matthews, our boarding facilities, personnel, and processes are of the highest caliber and your pet will receive the very best care.

Our practice requires that your pet be current on their vaccinations and intestinal parasite analysis for the their own protection as well as that of our other boarding pets.
