Pet Boarding in Andover, MA

While you have many boarding options for your pet when you’re gone, at Andover Animal Hospital, we think our veterinarian-supervised team will go above and beyond to look after your pet while you’re away.

Pet Boarding

Our boarding space is cleaned thoroughly daily so your pet can relax in a safe atmosphere. Before checking in, we require up-to-date pet vaccinations for dogs and cats and an annual negative fecal test. If your pet is not current on their vaccines, please schedule an exam before bringing them in, or they can be vaccinated when they arrive for boarding.

DAPP, Bordetella, Rabies, and Flu vaccinations are required for dogs, and FVRCP and Rabies vaccinations are required for cats. Dogs and cats are required to have flea and tick protection applied within 30 days of boarding. Before boarding, your pet must have an annual negative fecal test. Birds that board are required to have a negative chlamydia test prior to staying with us.

Exotic pet boarding is also available! We board bunnies, pocket pets, birds, reptiles, etc.!! Non-clients, please call to schedule an exam before setting up a boarding reservation.

If your pet takes any medications and supplements, our experts will give them to him or her at the appropriate time. Assume your pet becomes ill while staying with us. In that scenario, our team will notify our doctors, who will decide whether any medical treatment in our veterinary clinic is required.

Owners can provide their own food, or we provide a GI-sensitive diet. In accordance with recommendations created by the AVMA, AAHA, and CDC, and due to concerns for food safety, we are unable to feed raw diets in the boarding facility. Cooked homemade diets are welcome.

Outdoor walks, baths, and nail trims are all offered as well.
