Boarding

We know it takes trust to board your fur baby.

BOOK A VISIT

Your Pet’s Home Away from Home

We promise to care for all Eno pets as if they were our own. We will love your fur baby almost as much as you do!

Each Eno kennel assistant is highly trained to practice the highest standards of care and cleanliness. We provide soft blankets and cozy bedding. We use our own food and water bowls. For your convenience, there is no need to provide bedding or bowls. We do all we can to make sure your pet feels safe and comfortable.

We check three times a day to make sure your pet’s room and bedding are clean and dry. We meticulously track each boarding pet’s eating, drinking, and elimination habits. If we ever notice anything even slightly amiss, we immediately alert a vet assistant or veterinarian.

Your fur baby will have fresh water three times a day. We will feed your pet his or her exact diet if you choose to supply that food for the duration of the boarding stay. You may also choose to have your pet eat our in-house, easily digestible dry food at no additional cost. If you would like your pet to eat our in-house canned food, you may purchase enough for the stay.

We’re happy to give your pet plenty of love and spoiling, play, and attention. If your pet needs peace and quiet, that’s OK, too. We can usually make special accommodations for your fur baby. We go above and beyond to do what is best for each unique boarding pet.

Dog Boarding

Our boarding area for dogs is private and spacious and lets in lots of natural light. We have 16 large runs and six variously sized “rooms” for smaller pooches. Each pet has a designated cubby for his or her food and medications.

In our fenced-in walking area, your pup will safely have three walks a day. We love to walk dogs; we love the fresh air, exercise, play, and kisses!

Cat Boarding

Our boarding area for cats is private and quiet and lets in lots of natural light. We have eight spacious rooms, and they’re connecting! You can reserve one room, two, three, or even four to give your cat tons of ways to move around.

Each room includes a small annex for privacy. We know kitties need their alone time! Plus, there’s space in the annex for a litter box—since cats like to do their business in solitude. Your cat’s litter box will be checked and, if necessary, changed three times a day.

Policies & pricing

Do You Accept New Patients to Board?

Yes! To establish a doctor/patient relationship and ensure the health and safety of every pet in our
hospital, new boarding pets must have either the full “nose-to-tail” physical, if not current on a wellness exam, or an abbreviated boarding exam. Even if your pet is current on a wellness exam from another licensed veterinarian, an Eno vet must conduct an abbreviated boarding exam to establish a relationship and get to know your fur baby! Remember: Since you’re a new Eno pet parent, your pet’s full physical or boarding exam is complimentary!

All boarding pets must be current on core vaccinations. This ensures the safety of every pet in our hospital.

Your pet’s vaccine history can be established through medical records from another animal hospital if vaccines were performed by a licensed veterinarian. Breeder records or vaccines administered by anyone other than a licensed veterinarian will not suffice.

Boarding Policies

To ensure the health and safety of every pet in our hospital, boarding pets must have had a wellness exam within the last year. If your pet is not a new patient and not current on a wellness exam, we will perform the full “nose-to-tail” physical for $55 during your pet’s boarding stay. Pets who come to Eno only for boarding simply need an abbreviated boarding exam (for $25) annually.

To keep every Eno patient protected from contagious diseases, boarding pets must be current on core vaccines. For dogs, these include rabies, distemper/parvo, Bordetella, and canine influenza. For cats, these include rabies and feline distemper.

Core vaccine requirements for boarding are common best practices. We may make exceptions on a specific and rare basis—for instance, if an otherwise healthy pet has a condition that may make any particular vaccine risky to his or her health. Exceptions are granted only by your Eno veterinarian and only for medical (not financial or personal) reasons. In these rare cases, we can usually make special accommodations to ensure your pet can still board safely.

Boarding dogs must have an intestinal parasite screen, also known as a fecal test, to ensure they are free of worms.

We can administer required core vaccines and/or perform an intestinal parasite screen during your pet’s boarding stay at our regular prices. We can also do anything else your pet needs, such as grooming! Just let us know when you make your boarding reservation exactly how to make your pet’s Eno experience the very best.

We require an emergency contact name and number for a person you authorize to make medical decisions for and/or pick up your pet. We also ask you to provide the best number to reach you, the pet parent, while your pet boards with us.

We will make every attempt to reach you in the rare event your boarding pet requires urgent care or unexpected treatment. We ask on our boarding form, required with your signature for every boarding stay, that you authorize Eno Animal Hospital to perform any diagnostic procedures or medical treatments deemed necessary for your pet.

If fleas or ticks are found on your pet, we must provide appropriate treatment immediately, at additional cost, both to help your pet and prevent the spread of external parasites in our hospital.

Boarding pets may take a day or two to settle in at Eno. This is normal! If your pet is too stressed to eat at first, we will offer various foods to entice him or her. If a stressed pet has not eaten for 72 hours, our urgent care protocol kicks in, and we will make every attempt to reach you and then your emergency contact.

We limit your pet’s personal items to food and medications. We use our own food and water bowls and will outfit your pet’s room with lots of creature comforts. There is a daily fee for administering medications and monitoring pets on medication. When you check in, you must provide a list of your pet’s medications and indicate dosage, frequency, and when last given. Medications must be in their original containers, with original prescription labels.

Eno is a full-service animal hospital—but we are not open 24/7, and we are not an emergency hospital. Your boarding pet will be given our utmost care and attention, but he or she will not be supervised overnight.

We practice the best safety. No collars, harnesses, or leashes are ever left on boarding pets. Towels, blankets, bedding, toys, and the like will never be left in your pet’s room or run if there is any possibility he or she may ingest them.

When you book your pet’s boarding reservation, we may ask you to provide a window of time for admission and check-out. This helps ensure efficiency and limit waiting. Please note: We are not open on Sundays. We are open on Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., so you may admit or pick up your pet on Saturdays during our normal business hours.

Pricing

We charge by the night and by weight (for dogs).

Dogs:

  • Up to 25 pounds: $25 per night
  • 26 to 50 pounds: $28 per night
  • 51+ pounds: $31 per night

Cats

Our boarding charge is simply $20 per night, per room. For instance, if you choose to reserve two connecting rooms, the charge is $40 per night.

A One-Stop Shop for Fur Babies

We can do many things for your fur baby while boarding!

If your pet is not up to date on a wellness exam or core vaccines, your vet can perform the full “nose-to-tail” physical and, if deemed safe, administer those vaccines. We can do blood work, heartworm testing, FIV/FeLV testing (for cats), and intestinal parasite screens.

Your boarding pet can have a bath, a nail trim, an anal gland expression, or any other service we provide at Eno. Additional services are provided at our regular prices.

If your pet is scheduled for surgery or dentistry, he or she may board with us before and/or after that procedure. We will go over your pet’s treatment plan and additional forms with you thoroughly.
