Boarding and Grooming for Cats & Dogs

It is never easy to leave our pets behind, but having a safe and reliable kenneling option for those times when it is needed makes sense. Ingleside Animal Hospital provides boarding for cats and dogs, clients and non-client alike. For pets with medical conditions or on daily medications, boarding in a veterinary hospital can offer pet owners additional peace of mind.

Comfortable Accommodations

Ingleside Animal Hospital boards cats and dogs of all sizes. Our kennel facility is temperature controlled. We have air-conditioned and heated runs for the large dogs and air-conditioned and heated rooms for the smaller dogs and cats. Pets enjoy piped in music and natural lighting via ample windows and solar tubes. Dogs are walked two to three times daily.

Diet & Medications

We feed prescription-level dog and cat foods or your pet’s own diet. Administration of medications for any health condition, including diabetes, is provided. Pets not patients of Ingleside Animal Hospital, that are currently under treatment by another veterinarian, are required to be examined by one of our veterinarians to assess the pet’s medical condition (an exam fee will be levied). This is for the safety and security of your pet.

Boarding Requirements

For the safety of all our boarders, cats and dogs need to be free of fleas and up to date on vaccinations. For dogs, that includes bordetella, DA2PP, and rabies. Rabies vaccination is required, as well as FVRCP, for cats. We require documentation of current vaccinations.

Also dogs must be on a flea/tick preventive with owner showing proof of administration. If that cannot be presented, a flea/tick preventive will be administered for a fee.

Ingleside Animal Hospital also requires that all boarding cats, dogs, or other pets, that are not patients of our hospital and being treated for any medical condition, be examined by one of our doctors upon presenting to our hospital for boarding. This policy was developed to allow our staff to learn about the health of all patients being cared for in our facility. We also will require a copy of the current medical records from your veterinarian.

Boarding Agreement

Prior to dropping off your pet, please download our boarding agreement or fill out our boarding agreement form online.


Ingleside Animal Hospital offers full dog and cat grooming services. Our groomer works Tuesday through Saturday and offers early morning appointments or drop-off for your convenience. Pets can stay at the hospital until you are done with work or your daily errands until we close at 7 p.m. during the weekdays and 3 p.m. on weekends.

As an added convenience, we can address routine matters during grooming appointments. If you wish to vaccinate your pet during a grooming appointment, check out that lump or bump, or discuss any other health concerns, please schedule this with our hospital when you book your grooming appointment.
