Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding Services at Millhopper Veterinary Medical Center

Sooner or later, you find that you have to leave the Gainesville FL area, or at least your home, for an extended period of time. A hospital stay, vacation, business convention or another event may force you to leave your beloved pet behind. This can be a serious concern if you're entrusted your faithful companion to the occasional visit and feeding from the next-door neighbor. Your pet needs and deserves better -- which is why we're happy to provide professional pet boarding here at Milhopper Veterinary Medical Center in Gainesville.

How Pets Benefit From Veterinary Boarding

No matter how independent and self-sufficient your pet might seem, you don't want to leave him without skilled, experienced supervision during your journey. Here are some reasons why:

  • Separation anxiety - Pets who feel abandoned by their owners can become anxious, depressed, angry and even destructive. They may also try to run away when your neighbor enters the house at feeding time.
  • Pre-existing medical issues - If your pet is old, recovering from an injury or suffering from a chronic disease, he may need regular monitoring and/or precisely-timed doses of medication.
  • Sudden health crises - Even an apparently healthy pet can experience a sudden health crisis -- and if no one is readily available to notice and respond, the outcome could be catastrophic.

Your Best Friend's Home Away From Home

Do the safe, humane thing for your dog, cat, bird or exotic pet by booking a space at Milhopper Veterinary Medical Center's boarding facility. We maintain separate areas for each species, all them offering 365-day climate control and welcome shelter from the hot Florida sun. Our boarding rate for all sizes of dogs and cats is just $33, while of course your peace of mind and your pet's well-being are priceless. Your pet will receive daily exercise and human affection at no extra charge, ensuring that he genuinely enjoys his time with us. We even maintain special Sunday hours for pre-paid owners who need to pick up their pets on that day.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a safer pet resort than our fully-staffed veterinary facility. We know how to care for pets with different kinds of health conditions, giving them daily attention and providing therapy or medication as needed. Our ability to supervise your pet closely also means that no unexpected health event will go unnoticed. Since your pet is already here in our clinic, we can provide immediate diagnosis and treatment.

Arrange Boarding for Your Pet Today with Our Gainesville Veterinarian

Please make sure to arrange for your pet's boarding stay well in advance, especially during the busiest travel seasons. Keep in mind that all pets must be up to date on their vaccinations before they can be boarded, meaning your pet may need some advance wellness care from our vet team.
