Boarding & Grooming at Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital

Comfort and Safety for Your Pet, Peace of Mind for You

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, there's enough to do without worrying over the care of your beloved companion. This is especially true if your pet has a chronic or acute medical condition that requires a caregiver with veterinary knowledge and experience.

Rather than impose on a neighbor or rely on a pet sitter with little animal care training, Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital offers veterinary-supervised boarding for your dog or cat that is affordable, safe, and comfortable. Our caring, experienced staff is dedicated to providing personal attention to your pet. Any special health needs, such as medicine administration, food preparation, and exercise requirements will all be reviewed with you.

You are welcome to bring your own food if your pet is on a special diet and toys or other personal items are welcome to help make your pet as comfortable as possible during his stay.

Reservations are required for all pet boarders.

Required Vaccinations for Boarding

We require that all boarding dogs and cats be current on the following vaccinations:

Dogs:

  • Distemper
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella

Cats:

  • Distemper
  • Rabies

Please vaccinate your dog or cat prior to the check-in date. If that is not possible, we can provide needed vaccines the day of check-in.

If your pet has been vaccinated at another facility, we must have a copy of the current vaccination record in our file (preferably prior to check-in) or your pet will be required to have those vaccines re-administered through our hospital. It is your responsibility to make sure your veterinarian has faxed this record to us and that we have received it.

To protect the well-being of the pets in our care, we reserve the right to refuse any pet for boarding that may have a contagious illness or other problems.

Grooming

Grooming is an important part of preventive medical care, and regular grooming will help prevent serious medical problems - not to mention make your pet look, smell, and feel better. By having your pet groomed regularly, you can help detect skin infections and growths before they become a problem.
