Burke Animal Clinic offers boarding to pets with medical issues or special needs.  In such cases where your pet has a medical condition that boarding facilities cannot treat, we may be able to help.

If your pet has a medical condition or special needs that requires boarding at the clinic, please give us a call. Our first concern is always for the best interest of your pet and we will work with you to make sure their needs are met to the best of our ability.

All pets must be current on their annual exam and up to date on the following vaccinations:

Dogs - Rabies, Distemper (DHPP) and Bordetella (kennel cough) 

Cats - Rabies and Feline Respiratory/Distemper (FVRCP)

We recommend that you bring your pet's own food while boarding.  Keeping your pet on his or her regular diet will reduce stress while boarding.  However, we do provide food at no additional charge

Finding a Boarding Facility

While we are unable to provide specific recommendations on boarding facilities, here are some guidelines to help you choose a facility that meets the needs of you and your pet. 

  • Ask a friend, family member or pet trainer. Sometimes referrals are best when it comes to finding services for our canine and feline companions.
  • Use online review sites to check out what clients are saying about a particular facility.
  • Visit the facility and ask to see all areas where pets play and sleep. Some facilities may require an appointment for a tour, but a surprise visit may be good idea, too.
  • Things to consider:
    • Does the facility look and smell clean?
    • Is there sufficient ventilation and light?
    • Is a comfortable temperature maintained?
    • Does the staff seem knowledgeable and caring?
    • Are pets required to be current on their vaccinations? We recommend rabies and distemper for dogs and cats and Bordetella (kennel cough) for dogs.
    • Does each dog have his/her own adequately sized indoor-outdoor run or an indoor run and a schedule for walks or exercise?
    • Is bedding provided?
    • Is there enough space for cats to move around comfortably?
    • Is there enough space between the litter box and food bowls?
    • How often are pets fed and walked?
    • Can you bring special food?
    • Are other services available such as doggie daycare, play time with a staff member, extra walks, extra bedding, cat play areas?
  • Help your pet adjust to a new facility by boarding for a short stay before leaving your pet for an extended time.
  • Remind staff of any special dietary needs, medications or activity restrictions, such as needing to be walked on a harness.
  • When leaving a pet in boarding, avoid long, emotional partings, which may upset your pet.
  • Make sure the boarding facility has the ability to reach you or a trusted friend or family member while you’re away.
  • Leave the name of your veterinarian in case medical attention is needed or boarding staff need access to your pet’s medical history.
