Pet Boarding

[Boarding is closed due to COVID-19 until further notice.]

From the time your pet arrives at Desert Dunes Animal Hospital until they go home, your pet will be pampered and cared for by our loving boarding staff. We have clean individual housing that is sanitized regularly. There are temperature-controlled areas, a misting system and shade outside. Your dog will be let out in the yard to play several times a day. Fresh water, clean bedding and administering medications are part of our routine and care. Cats have their own area away from dogs. We have high quality food and treats we provide but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

Boarding Steps

*Please print out a boarding form for each of your pets and either fax it to our veterinary hospital or bring it in with you.

*To keep all pets as healthy as possible they must be current on vaccinations and or vaccinated within the last 48 hours.
(If Influenza vaccine is needed – please keep in mind it takes 6 weeks to be completely vaccinated for the series of Canine Influenza so please plan accordingly)

The doctors at Desert Dunes have updated vaccine requirements recently to include Canine Influenza as an annual vaccine. Starting October 1st, 2018, it will be mandatory for all dogs using our boarding or bathing facilities to be completely vaccinated. If your pet has a current annual examination, you can come in without an appointment at any time to have the first vaccine started. The 2nd booster (second Influenza) is 3 weeks after the initial Influenza Vaccine. It takes 6 weeks to be completely vaccinated for the series of Canine Influenza so please plan accordingly.
