Safety & Comfort Away From Home

pet boarding and bathing

Separation can be stressful both for pets and their owners, but Schertz Animal Hospital is committed to making pets feel that our boarding facility is their home away from home.

Boarding Facilities

Schertz Animal Hospital has 22 large indoor runs, including extra-large runs that can accommodate multiple dogs or large breeds. Understanding the need to provide cats with climbing opportunities and stimulating environments, our cat kennels have kitty condos and windows visible to the front lobby so that the cats have interesting things to watch during the day. The kitty kennels are also designed so we can combine kennel areas for cats that are used to living together.

All pets are kept comfortable with fluffy towels to lie on and their cages are cleaned twice a day. Dogs are walked three times a day, and we provide a specially formulated food that helps pets deal with any stresses they may feel.

Attentive Professional Staff

Being animal owners ourselves, Schertz Animal Hospital’s staff understands that pets know when the people who care for them genuinely enjoy being with them. Both the kennel staff and the general staff can frequently be found playing with the boarded pets, and our kennel staff has been selected partly because of their love of spending time with animals.

As part of our commitment to quality care, every boarded pet has a communication card kept on the kennel where each care provider documents what has been done. From the times that walks were given to kennel cleaning, feedings, and any medical care, our staff ensures that each pet’s needs are met.

In addition to giving boarded pets affection throughout the day, our staff is trained to watch for and address any health issues. Our veterinarians are available to examine boarded pets should any needs arise.

Medical Boarding

Pets with health issues and that require regular medication or attention are also welcome to board with Schertz Animal Hospital. Medications are given by a trained professional, and our veterinarians are able to check on health status as needed. We even have special kennels in a separate area for diabetic animals that require more constant monitoring by our technicians.

Boarding Reservations, Necessary Vaccinations, Bedding and Food

Before approving reservations we will need to verify your pets are current on Rabies, DHLPP (once per year), bordetella (every 6 months), Canine influenza H3N2 and H3N8 #1 and #2. Please be sure these vaccines are done at least 5 days prior to arrival. Our guests are walked 3 times per day in our large spacious yard. We have air conditioned, indoor kennels/runs that are monitored at all times.

We provide comfortable bedding, we will provide water and food bowls. We feed Purina EN Gastrointestinal diet for our boarders. If you have any other questions about the accommodations and requirements please give us a call. Keep in mind we usually book up rather fast during the holiday seasons, so please book your reservation as early as possible.

Pet Bathing

While we do not offer grooming, Schertz Animal Hospital can offer general shampooing, nail trimming, and anal gland expression for pets. Some pets that become overly stressed or aggressive can be sedated for these procedures.

Please contact us if you are in need of a safe and comfortable place for your pet to stay while you are away.
