At Northlake Veterinary Hospital on the Northshore, we understand that there are times when you have to leave home without your pet. Whether you are going out of town on business or vacation, or just need a place for your pet to stay during the day, our clean, climate-controlled boarding facilities are the perfect home away from home for your pet.

During your pet’s stay at Northlake Veterinary Hospital, your pet will be cared for as if it were one of our own. Each boarded pet receives a proper diet and is given appropriate exercise as well as individual attention. If your pet is on medication it will be administered as needed.

Our compassionate staff members have years of experience caring for boarded pets. Our boarding facilities are clean, comfortable and are monitored by our kennel staff. Our licensed veterinarians are also on-site to provide supervision should any questions or problems arise during your pet’s stay.
