Boarding at Belair

Boarding accommodations are available here at Belair Vet Hospital for dogs, cats, and some exotics! We provide a warm and welcoming environment for our four-legged guests. A few highlights:

Reservations

To make boarding reservations, give us a call during business hours (301) 249-5200.

Drop Off

Our doors open at 8:00am to welcome pets who are staying with us.

Vaccines

All guests must be up to date on their vaccines (Dogs: rabies, distemper, bordetella, and canine influenza. Cats: rabies & distemper).

Food

We recommend bringing your own pet food to prevent upset stomach or diarrhea. If you don’t bring your own food, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered! We offer Hill’s Science Diet pet food for our guests who don’t have their own food.

Medication

If your pet needs medication administered while s/he is staying with us, please bring all medications with the prescribing doctor’s instructions.

Personal Items

You’re welcome to bring blankets or toys for your pet to make her/his stay with us as comfortable as possible. Please make sure they are labeled with your last name. We’ll record all belongings at the time of drop off. We recommend not bringing in items of value in the event they get lost.

During your Pet’s Stay

All dogs are walked individually 3 times a day. More walks can be given for an additional $2 per walk. Cats stay in their cage during their stay (we make it super cozy for them!)

Baths are available for dogs at the end of their stay with us. Please let us know if you would like this service. If your pet stays with us for 6 nights or longer, the bath is free (but we still need permission from you!). Please inquire on bath pricing for stays shorter than 6 nights (prices vary according to dog weight). Baths are given on the last day of your pet’s stay with us. If you choose to have your pet bathed, please plan on picking up after 3pm on go-home day. If you are picking up on a Saturday, your pet’s bath will be given on Friday.

If your pet needs any other service (exam, vaccines, grooming, etc) during her/his stay with us, just let us know at drop off!

If at any time during your pet’s stay with us s/he needs special or emergency treatment, we will call you or your designated contact to inform you of the situation.

Pets are cared for during business hours Monday-Saturday, Saturday evening, Sunday morning, and Sunday evening (we don’t offer 24/7 supervision).

Pick Up

Your pet can be picked up any time during business hours (M/W 8a-7p, T/Th/Fri 8a-6p, Sat 8a-1p).
