Pet Boarding & Daycare: Giving Pets an Experience to Look Forward To
Bringing in your pet for boarding and/or daycare should be easy–especially if they’re staying with us! Carriage Animal Hospital in Lombard offers an exceptional experience for visiting dogs and cats complete with comfortable accommodations, playtime, extra cuddles, and lots of love.
Take a moment to learn about what you (and your pet) can expect when they stay with us. When you’re ready, complete and submit the boarding or daycare form!
What We Provide for Your Pet
Our goal is to make your pet’s transition from home to boarding facility as seamless as possible. That means treating them like the special family member they are and taking all of their needs into account. And because our pet boarding facility and animal hospital go hand in hand, your pet can receive timely medical care if needed.
Features of our boarding center:
- Spacious kennels and dog runs
- Clean, soft bedding for all guests
- Separate boarding areas for dogs and cats
- Open play sessions for dogs to socialize and have fun
- A beautiful outdoor play yard with soft turf and secure fencing
- Cats receive individualized attention from staff members
Items to Bring from Home
We do not recommend bringing bedding, blankets or toys from home because we cannot guarantee their return. You do need to bring your pet’s food if they are on a special diet, though we can provide food if necessary.
Both food and medication should be in durable containers labeled with your pet’s name and directions. If you have instructions or requests, please let us know at drop-off.
Our Boarding Packages
We offer Gold, Silver and Platinum boarding packages so your pet can have the best staycation ever. See what’s included!
*If your pet has specific dietary needs or a sensitive stomach, we recommend bringing your own food from home to reduce your pet’s risk of developing GI upset.
**To participate in social play, your pet will need to have a boarding assessment exam.
Additionally, you can customize your pet’s stay further by adding on services such as extra cuddle time, peanut butter treats, and dental chews.
Helping Pets Socialize with Our Dog Daycare Program
Socialization is very important for dogs because it helps to build confidence and teach dogs how to play well with others. Unsocialized dogs can be fearful and uncertain of their place in the pack. Our dog daycare program allows your pup to enjoy plenty of playtime, exercise, and socialization under the supervision of an experienced staff member. Before they join, we can evaluate their behavior and gradually introduce them into a more social setting.
Activities your pet can enjoy at our Lombard facility include ball playing, running, and an obstacle course. We also offer rest periods and can provide meals for pets by request.
