Boarding your pet at our hospital in Wooster, OH has many advantages, such as having skilled, compassionate veterinarians and technicians available to watch over your pet and provide medical treatment if needed. Whether you’re traveling near or far, you can rest easy knowing your dog or cat is in the best hands. In addition to standard overnight boarding, we also offer day boarding for your convenience.
Here at Ark Veterinary Hospital, we pledge to treat every pet as if they were our own. Our team members enjoy caring for our boarding guests and giving them love, attention, and treats (at your request) to make their stay more enjoyable.
What Exactly is Day Boarding?
If you’re extremely busy with work, errands, or some other business that will keep you away from the house most of the day, consider leaving your pet with us for the time being. Day boarding is especially convenient for pet parents who need to bring in their pet for an appointment, but do not have time to stay for the full appointment themselves. In such a case, you’re welcome to drop off your pet and leave their care to us, while you manage your other obligations.
Dogs and cats can still take part in our day boarding service even if they do not need medical or preventative care. Just be sure to contact us before dropping off your pet so we understand the reason for their brief boarding stay.
