Use the form here to request an appointment for an examination, a surgery, or for boarding your pet. This form will be evaluated by one of our receptionists and they will be in contact with you.

As pet owners, we sometimes need to get away for a weekend, a vacation, or a family/medical emergency. It is best if you are able to find someone to come to your home and care for your pets in your absence, but if no one is available to do that, consider leaving your pet in our care. We have multiple dog runs and kennels in our new facility dedicated to boarding your pets. Our expert animal husbandry team will make certain your pet receives the best care during his or her stay with us.


Special needs boarders may be accommodated depending on their conditions. We can easily accommodate diabetics and boarders who need medications. However, if your pet is nursing, is paralyzed, is very aged and needs assistance to get up and get around, or is a puppy/kitten younger than 16 weeks without its full series of vaccines it may be better for the pet to arrange in-home care during your absence. Please call our office and we may be able to recommend a pet sitter for you. All boarding dogs and cats are required to be current on their routine vaccinations.


Canine Boarding

Canidog runsne guests are housed in our separate boarding facility located next to our veterinary hospital. It is equipped with runs for large dogs and kennels for small dogs.  Blankets and bowls are provided.  You are welcome to bring bedding and toys, but we are unable to guarantee that they will be returned in the same condition or at all. For dogs who stay four or more nights, a complimentary bath will be given before going home.


Guests are taken out to exercise in one of our two fully fenced areas at leastgpscollar2 twice daily. Every dog is equipped with a G.P.S. tracking collar and identification collar prior to being taken off leash.  Leash walking by one of our kennel staff is available if your dog is a known fence climber.


Special attention is given to kennel cough prevention in the boarding situation. We require a Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine to be administered within six months of a boarding appointment. If your dog needs a kennel cough vaccine updated before boarding, it must be given at least five days prior to their boarding reservation. We do this to protect your dog as well as all the other dogs in our facility.



Feline Boarding

  Feline guests are housed in a separate room within our veterinary hofeline kennelsspital. The room is equipped with plexiglass-backed cages with a view of a courtyard with bird feeders and garden.


Bedding, litter boxes, and bowls are provided. You are welcome to bring bedding and toys, but we are unable to guarantee that they will be returned in the same condition or at all.


Feline guests are fed Hill’s Feline Adult Light unless you provide their regular diet.



Occasionally, Seven Bends Veterinary Hospital is able to board birds, ferrets, rabbits, and other “pocket pets”. Please call our office for availability.
