Boarding for Cats and Dogs in Charlotte, NC

When traveling for business or going on vacation, there is enough you have to do without having to worry about who is going to take care of your furry family member. This is especially true if your companion has an acute or chronic medical condition that requires a caregiver with veterinary knowledge and experience. At Steele Creek Animal Hospital, we offer cat and dog boarding to give pet owners peace of mind and make sure their loved ones are receiving excellent care in their absence.

If your dog or cat needs medical attention while they board with us, we can attend to any needs they have (and will be familiar with your pet’s medical history). Our veterinary team in Charlotte, NC is readily available to your pet whenever he or she needs them. We’ll review all your pet’s special health needs, such as medicine administration, food preparation, and exercise requirements, with you prior to their stay with us. While we offer a variety of high-quality diets for our four-legged guests, you are more than welcome to bring your own food (especially if your pet is on a specific diet). You may also purchase prescription diets from us if necessary.

Prior to boarding, dogs must be current with the following vaccinations:

  • Bordetella (within 6 months)
  • Rabies

Included in boarding, all canine guests will get 3 walks per day Monday-Saturday and 2 walks per day Sundays and holidays.
We invite you to bring your pups favorite toy(s) with them. Often, the smell/taste of home can comfort your pet in a new, unfamiliar environment.
