Boarding & Grooming Policy


All dogs and cats boarding with us must have had an exam within the last 12 months and have a current rabies vaccine. Additionally, dogs must be up-to-date on their distemper/parvo and Bordetella vaccines. Cats also must be current on their FVRCP vaccine. Dogs that have not had an intestinal parasite screen (aka fecal test) done within the last 12 months, will have one performed while they board with us, at the owner’s expense.


To make your pet’s stay more comfortable, we encourage you to:

  • Bring your pet’s treats, toys, blanket, or bed from home. However, you are more than welcome to have us provide our own bedding to keep your pet comfortable.
  • Bring your pet’s food, especially if they eat wet food or have special diet needs. We can provide Hill’s Science Diet dry food for cats and dogs at no additional expense.
  • Bring food and treats for exotic pets (birds, ferrets, rabbits, fish, etc.)
  • Any medications that will be given while boarding must be in the original containers with clear instructions. A daily medication fee does apply.


Boarding Your Bird, Reptile, or Other Small Exotic Mammal


Boarding is not just for cats and dogs. You can trust Grafton Animal Hospital to care for your bird, reptile, ferret, rat, etc.
We require that our exotic pet guests have an exam on file within the last 12 months prior to boarding with us. If that is not the case, our doctors will perform a wellness exam upon arrival, at the owner’s expense.
We request that you bring your pet’s regular cage from home, along with your pet’s food, water bottles, food bowls, bedding, and toys. If your pet eats fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, we have the means to store those items. Give any of our staff members a call to learn how we can help you board all your pets.
