Pet Boarding at Sheehy Animal Hospital in Livonia

While you are away from home for a vacation, business trip, event or extended weekend, let our friendly staff members take care of your pet. Here at Sheehy Animal Hospital in Livonia, we provide boarding services for both cats, dogs, birds, and exotic pets. In order to ensure your pet’s health, we do ask that you have your dog or cat vaccinated against certain communicable diseases prior to being boarded.

Our veterinarian in Livonia, MI offers pet boarding services for dog boarding and cat boarding.

Benefits of Boarding Your Pet with our Veterinarian in Livonia

Boarding your pet with our veterinarian in Livonia means that your dog or cat will have immediate access to veterinary care should they become ill during their stay. If your pet does become sick while in our care, our staff members will immediately alert our vet, and you will be called and informed of your pet’s current condition. Once our vet has a diagnosis and a treatment plan, we will let you know the outcome of the examination and the available treatment options. Once you approve a treatment, we will administer it so that your pet can start feeling better.

If your pet takes any medications for chronic illnesses or pain, all you have to do is let us know. We would be happy to give your pet his or her daily medication.

In addition to providing immediate medical care and administering medication, you can schedule our other veterinary services during your pet’s stay. Common services that we provide to our boarded pets include annual examinations, microchipping, vaccinations, parasite prevention and dental cleanings.

Dog Boarding at our Livonia Animal Hospital

Dog boarding at our Livonia animal hospital helps ensure that your pet is safe, happy and entertained. Our dog-friendly staff members will exercise and play with your furry family member multiple times a day to ensure that he or she gets the right amount of exercise and human interaction. If your dog has a favorite food, treat, blankets or toys, you can bring them with you when you drop your pet off. Pets always feel more comfortable when they have familiar items around them.

Cat Boarding with our Livonia Veterinarian

Our Livonia veterinarian offers quiet, stress-free cat boarding. All cats are placed in an area that is separate from the dogs in order to ensure that they have lots of quiet space where they can relax. Our feline-loving staff members will attend to all of your pet’s needs while he or she is in our care. This includes food, water and human interaction. If your cat has a favorite food, feel free to bring it with you along with any bedding and toys. Bringing a few of your cat’s favorite items will make your pet’s stay more comfortable.

Exotic and Avian Pet Boarding with our Livonia Veterinarian

We also offer exotic animal boarding and avian boarding at our Livonia animal hospital.  If you're going away on a trip you can rest easy knowing your birds or exotic animals are safe in our care.
