Our boarding facility is reserved for Hershey Veterinary Hospital clients only. Advanced reservations are required and are taken on a first come first serve basis. Summer time and holidays are especially busy so we recommend booking far in advance. Our boarding facility features a large fenced in play yard for dogs to exercise and have fun. Dogs are released individually into the yard several times throughout the day. While inside your dog is under the constant supervision of our technicians and kennel assistants. Our canine guests are required to be current on vaccinations including: Distemper Parvo, Rabies, and Bordetella.
Cats are also welcome at our boarding facility and have their own separate accommodations. Our feline guests are also given time out of the cage to stretch and play. We pay special attention to our feline guests and they are given lots of love and attention. Our feline guests are required to be current on vaccinations including: FVRCP and Rabies.
Owners are welcome to bring personal items along with their pets to make their stay more comfortable. We recommend a favorite toy or bone to keep them busy while inside. All our guests are provided with blankets and bowls. If your pet requires a special diet or is sensitive to food changes please bring food along. Otherwise all pets are fed Science Diet adult dry food.
Our boarding facility is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and is subject to unannounced inspections throughout the year. During these inspections we are required to show proof of current Rabies vaccination and PA license for all dogs in our care as required by law. If your pet does not have a current PA license you may subject to possible fines.
Boarding hours are the same as hospital hours with an additional drop off/pickup time of 4:00-6:00 pm on Sundays.
Grooming services for all breeds of dogs are available Monday-Thursday. Advanced appointments are required. We ask that all scheduled grooms be dropped off between 7:00-8:00 am. All dogs will receive a nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression prior to being bathed and groomed. Our groomer will be happy to discuss your pet’s needs when dropping off.
Grooming is available to clients of Hershey Veterinary Hospital and non-clients. All dogs are required to be current on vaccinations.
