Boarding

Boarding: Safe and Affordable Accommodations for Your Pet

Why rely on a friend or untrained pet sitter to take care of your pet while you go on vacation or travel for business? Palatine Animal Hospital can provide you and your pet with an affordable, safe and comfortable place for your cat or dog while you are away.

Our loving and caring staff treats each pet as if they were their own, which means we provide your dog or cat with lots of attention and play time. Of course, your pet is not far from topnotch medical attention should he or she require it.

Our boarding facility is temperature controlled year-round and includes separate boarding areas for cats and dogs. Your dog will have his or her own indoor run or cage with plenty of space and will be walked four to six times each day. You are also able to pack your pet's favorite food in a re-sealable container and bring along some toys in order to help assure his or her stay is as comfortable as possible.

We also offer special accommodations for medicated or diabetic pets.

We ask that you make a reservation beforehand and require your pet to be up-to-date on its vaccinations. If you choose not to bring food for your pet, we offer Hill's Science Diet. Whether your pet is staying with us or coming in for a routine appointment, we also offer basic bathing and brushing as well as lion cuts for cats.

New clients receive $25 OFF wellness exam. (Only one per new client)
