Boarding for cats

We are often asked "do you do boarding for dogs and cats?" The answer is generally no for dogs (apart from special cases) and yes for cats.

Boarding for dogs

Sunset Vet does not have open runs or a garden to allow dogs to be exercised during their stay. In our opinion, it is unfair to keep a healthy dog kennelled for long periods. Dogs suffer from boredom too! Therefore we do not offer boarding facilities for dogs, unless that dog has a medical condition that requires monitoring or therapeutic intervention. Please note that for any dog that is boarding with us due to a chronic medical condition, we require evidence of kennel cough vaccination prior to arrival. This immunization can be provided by ourselves if necessary in the week preceding the boarding.

Boarding for cats

Cats are much lower maintenance then dogs, as they do not strictly require outside space for mental stimulation. We are happy to accept cats for boarding, and this option is especially attractive to owners of high maintenance cats that require lots of attention or special handling. All boarding cats are checked over once a day by our vets, and this means they can get immediate treatment if they require it. Owners can also relax in the knowledge that cats on medication are treated properly. All boarding cats must have up to date cat flu vaccination prior to arrival.
