Veterinary Medical Boarding

Mount Carmel Animal Hospital offers for boarding pets with health conditions or who require treatment or surgery while their owners are away.

Pets are part of the family, but unfortunately, they can’t always go along on out-of-town trips and vacations. Most pets can easily spend time at a local boarding facility or with an in-home pet sitter. But some pets have special medical needs and require extra attention and administration of medications or treatments. Mount Carmel Animal Hospital can help! Let us take care of your beloved pet so you can enjoy your time away without worrying about your pet’s medical needs being taken care of.

Pets staying with us for boarding should be current on core vaccines to ensure their health and the health of our other patients.


  • Rabies Vaccine
  • Distemper Combination Vaccine (DHPP/DHLPP/DAPP)
  • Bordetella Vaccine (Kennel Cough Vaccine)


  • Rabies Vaccine
  • Distemper Combination Vaccine (FVRCP)

Check In and Check Out Appointments

Please make an appointment to check in and check out for your pet’s boarding stay. Knowing when your pet will be arriving and departing enables us to have everything ready and staff available to assist you and get you on your way quickly. You may schedule an appointment well in advance or simply call about an hour before you would like to check in or check out.

We do not have pick up hours on holidays.

Pets scheduled for grooming are usually ready for pick up after 3:00 PM. Please call ahead to confirm that your groomed pet is ready for pick up.

Personal Belongings

All personal items left with boarding pets should be clearly identified with pet’s name and last name. Please limit the personal belongings to necessary items only. MCAH is not responsible for any unreturned, misplaced, or damaged items.
