A Home Away from Home

We know that the best vacations are those with ALL family members in attendance, including the four-legged ones! But for the times you simply can’t take your pet with you, take comfort in knowing that the boarding facility at Browns Bridge Animal Hospital is designed for the comfort of your pet.

We provide complete general boarding services for all of our patients, and medical boarding services for pets with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate. 

Medical Boarding for Cats & Dogs, Gainesville Vet

Boarding: A Typical Day

Dogs

Each morning, the dogs will eat their breakfast and go for a walk with one of our dedicated staff members. Their kennels are cleaned, disinfected, and stocked with fresh linens every day.

Depending on their physical capacity and ability, we walk the dogs who stay with us on a regular schedule. 

Your dog will have a trained team member to check on them throughout the day — both during walks and while they rest. In the evening, dinner is served, and then we have one last walk before bedtime.

Cats

Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home.

We provide kitties with daily one-on-one interaction (if they want it) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned, and disinfected continually throughout the day.

Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.

Medical Boarding

If your pet requires care that goes beyond standard boarding, we offer medical boarding services. They will be supervised by our expert veterinary staff who will administer all required medications.

  • How should I prepare for my pet's stay?

    Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.

    Step 1: Contact us to get started

    Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.

    Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.

    Step 2: Set your pet up for success

    On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.

    Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful, and confident during the separation.
