» Boarding



We provide boarding for cats as a service to our clients. All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday – Sunday.

We also provide medical boarding for those kitties that may require a little extra tender loving care (such as oral medication, insulin, or fluids.) You can rest assured that all of your pet’s medical needs will be taken care of while you’re away.

Cat Boarding Policy

Any cat who is boarding at Union Veterinary Clinic must be a current patient (examined within the past 12 months) and up to date on all vaccines, unless a veterinarian has discontinued them due to age or health reasons. If your pet is due for vaccines during their boarding stay, they will be updated by one of our veterinarians. New patients must have a pre-boarding examination with one of our veterinarians. Examination can be performed with an appointment on the same day you wish to start boarding.

Union Veterinary Clinic will provide all blankets, bowls, litter boxes and food. If you are bringing your own food or medication please notify the receptionist when you drop off and on the boarding form provided and let them know if your pet has already received their medication for that day. If you pet is on medication please be sure to provide enough to for the duration of your pets stay.

Due to our building size, we cannot store carriers for all of our boarders. Please be aware you will need to bring the carrier(s) home with you at time of drop-off. At arrival, please allow yourself enough time to completely fill out the boarding consent form. This will help us to properly care for your cat(s) while you are away.

A technician will check every pet for fleas upon arrival. Any cat found with fleas will be given a treatment of the doctor’s choosing.
